Help kill the upcoming Canadian copyright law

As avid readers of BoingBoing will know, Canada is likely to be passing a new copyright law in the next month. The current Conservative gov't is withholding specific information about this new law to stiffle public debate. Jim Prentice, the Industry Minister, whose ministry is responsible for copyright law in Canada, has refused to come on Search Engine, a CBC program talking about culture and the net. It is critical that they don't get away with this. Online Rights Canada is running a great Contact your MP campaign and Michael Geist has other people you should contact. Don't let them get away with this!
