Canadian government still on track for DMCA++

It appears things are still being pushed forward for Canada to adopt legislation even worse than the United States' disasterous Digital Millenium Copyright Act. While Canadians, musicians, and every sensible indication suggest that policy should be moving in the opposite direction, the government is still ignoring them. See Michael Geist's recent coverage, which was also linked to on BoingBoing.

Green Party supports open source

As was recently reported on, the Green Party of Canada became the first party to officially endorse the use of open source software in their party platform. The move was largely influenced by a member of the relatively new Free Geek Vancouver, and hopefully will influence other parties to follow suit in the future.
