CKNW: The Mike Smyth ShowThe first eighteen minutes of this |MP3| file is the only mention, that I know of by a Vancouver based radio program), about copyright reform in 2010. In the podcast CKNW‘s Mike Smyth (he’s also a Province columnist) talks to Mikkel Paulson, the leader of the recently created Pirate Party of Canada, and Carmi Levy, a Toronto Star journalist and blogger, about Canada’s current copyright legislation, Bill C-32, media levies and the ethics of torrents.

Here’s the relevant section from the official description:

“IS THE NEW COPYRIGHT LAW ‘FAIR’?
MIKKEL PAULSON
PARTY LEADER AND DIRECTOR, PIRATE PARTY OF CANADA
CARMI LEVY
TECHNOLOGY JOURNALIST
Re: if you download music, movies or television, listen up. Canada is in the midst of copyright reform, how can you protect the rights of artists, while not handicapping consumers in their use of digital technology?”
