The 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’?
PARTY LEADER AND DIRECTOR, PIRATE PARTY OF CANADA
