The Governor-General is currently reading the Speech from the Throne, which sets the forthcoming legislative agenda, in the Senate. The speech unsurprisingly includes reference to copyright reform:
Cultural creativity and innovation are vital not only to a lively Canadian cultural life, but also to Canada’s economic future. Our Government will proceed with legislation to modernize Canada’s copyright laws and ensure stronger protection for intellectual property.
The speech disappointingly does not reference anti-spam legislation, despite a commitment to introduce anti-spam laws during the election campaign.
