Mr. Speaker, under the Conservative government, nothing was done to support our artists or modernize our laws on culture. After this decade of indifference for our artists and creators, our government is taking action. Last week, our government announced reforms aimed at modernizing the Copyright Act.
Thanks to changes to the Copyright Board of Canada, creators will now be paid for their work faster.
Would the Minister of Canadian Heritage and Multiculturalism explain what the modernized system means for our artists and creators?
