    ACTA demands
    In other words all of society, our whole telecommunications infrastructure, legal sysem, manufacturing, border controls, police priorities etc must all be restructured to serve their outmoded 1955 business model.

    The only thing that makes these demands unfunny is that the Harper government will doubtless grant them all. We need an election! I like Dion fine, but if he doesn’t do his job he should be booted out in favour on someone who will.
