For the past week, I've been receiving daily emails from Canadians asking if I know why their copyight consultation submission has not been posted. The website currently includes some submissions for every day the consultation was open (September 15th), yet there are thousands of submissions that are still not up. My last update accounted for just over 4,000 submissions and there are rumours that the final number topped 7,000 (10 times the number of submissions in the 2001 consultation). While some delay in processing and posting all of those submissions is reasonable, the lack of information about the situation is not. The government opened the consultation with a strong commitment to openness and transparency. That should continue to the end of the consultation with a full update on status of the missing submissions, the reasons for the delays, and the anticipated date for the posting of all submissions.
