A list of the Bills that will die as a result of Harper’s arrogance!

My fave ill-fated Bill is  C-58 – An Act respecting the mandatory reporting of Internet child pornography by persons who provide an Internet service Read 2nd time; referred to Committee.

One place where we need tighter controls is on this type of crap… and the Harperites let it die.

  1. Child porn strikes a nerve with me too, but I cannot abide legislation that requires people to spy and report without oversight.

    Save for your comment on C-58, I agree with you.
    As a parent, child porn strikes a raw nerve with me.
    In any case, I wasn’t drawing judgment on what was dying on the order table… simply the fact that is was dying…

    Whether you like or dislike these bills surely you understand that the actual governing of the country simply must take second place to keeping stevie in power.
    The lack of any legitimate leadership is a small price to pay.

  4. Some of those bills should die:

    >>28) C-58 – An Act respecting the mandatory reporting of Internet child pornography by
    >>persons who provide an Internet service Read 2nd time; referred to Committee

    We don’t need to be turning private citizens into police. There’s a reason we don’t have an act respecting the mandatory reporting of terrorist (or child-porn related, for that matter) telephone calls by persons who provide telecommunications services. Same shit, different pile. There is absolutely NO REASON WHATSOEVER to encourage internet service providers to snoop on any person’s traffic, nor to report it, Big Brother-style, to the authorities.

    Child porn is evil, but this legislation is absolutely not an acceptable restriction in a free and democratic society. You want to find out about someone’s child porn, get a bloody warrant.

    Of course, warrants require a modicum of probable cause, and are subject to scrutiny… calls from the public aren’t – hence the proliferation of this kind of legislation. Like C-47 (give the government by way of police and spies, warrantless access to your internet traffic and require ISPs to maintain copies and records of everyone’s traffic), this bill is bad legislation and wholly unnecessary.

    >>1) C-6 – An Act respecting the safety of consumer products Passed 3rd reading in the
    >>House of Commons

    I believe this bill had been corrupted by the Senate and deserved to die.

    >>4) C-15 – An Act to amend the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act and to make
    >>related and consequential amendments to other Acts Passed 3rd reading

    Mandatory sentences for marijuana? let it die. We should be decriminalizing or outright legalizing it, not slapping manadatory jail time on it.

    >>11) C-31 – An Act to amend the Criminal Code, the Corruption of Foreign Public Officials
    >>Act and the Identification of Criminals Act and to make a consequential amendment to
    >>another Act Referred to Legislative Committee

    Making things you do outside of Canada to be crimes in Canada. I oppose this kind of legislation. The long arm of Canada’s law should not be extraterritorial. This sort of legislation is inherently undemocratic.

    >>15) C-37 – An Act to amend the National Capital Act and other Acts Read 2nd time;
    >>referred to Committee

    The only legislation i want to see with respect to the National Capital are either: a) an abolishment of the NCC, returning control to the various provinces and municipalities involved, or b) the secession of the national capital area into an autonomous district similar to the Australian Capital Territory.

    Anything else is just bureaucratic nonsense. This one deserved to die too.

    >>22) C-47 — An Act regulating telecommunications facilities to support investigations
    >>Read 2nd time; referred to Committee

    Bad, undemocratic legislation that deserved to die.

    So overall, I’m thinking that maybe it was a good thing that parliament shut down. C-47 would likely have been creamed by the SCC at taxpayer expense if it had been passed into law, so we save some money.
