Copyright Reform Meets the Census Fiasco

Copyright reform is a boring, unsexy, but important issue. Just like the long form census.

Today they intersected. The government has censored the notice of Munir Sheikh's noisy exit (as seen above, posted by Statistics Canada at and replaced it with a brief not that they will not comment on the issue.

I can post a copy of the original because I'm protected by the principles of fair dealing. However, if bill C-32 is passed intact the government can prevent us all from doing so by hiding embarassing news releases like the above by some form of digital lock. That would be bad for democracy.
