I spoke earlier today with an official at Industry Canada regarding the thousands of missing copyright consultation submissions. I was advised that there was a huge spike of submissions toward the very end of the consultation period. There were slightly over 8,100 submissions, a huge number in comparison with virtually any other government consultation in recent memory (consultations typically draw 50 to 100 responses). The government is committed to posting all submissions in HTML format due to access concerns. Since many submissions arrived in PDF form, there is considerable coding work underway. Their current plan is to continue to post submissions with the hope of completing the job over the next few weeks. For those seeking to search the posted submissions, CCER has just launched a search engine of consultation submissions.
