In addition to the prospect of new liability, the lesson provisions include a series of draconian conditions that undermine rather than facilitate education. For example, Section 30(5)(a) provides that the education institution is required to:
destroy any fixation of the lesson within 30 days after the day on which the students who are enrolled in the course have received their final course evaluations;
I am not making this up. Bill C-61 requires teachers that utilize this educational exemption to destroy the lessons that they have created for their courses with one month of the conclusion of the course. Teachers must recreate the lessons each year which obviously establishes a strong incentive to run as far away as possible from these new "rights." If the government is serious about supporting education, it will drop this embarrassing condition from bill.
