Peter Julian Burnaby—New Westminster, BC

Mr. Speaker, I have petitions on three subjects.

The first is from petitioners in my community of Burnaby—New Westminster and elsewhere in the lower mainland, Vancouver Island and Alberta. Regarding the Copyright Act, these petitioners call upon Parliament to ensure generally that users are recognized as interested parties and are meaningfully consulted about proposed changes to the Copyright Act, and to ensure in particular that any changes at least preserve all existing users' rights, including the right to use copyrighted materials under fair dealing and the right to make private copies of audio recordings.

They further call upon Parliament not to extend the term of copyright and to recognize the rights of citizens to personally control their own communication devices.
