Hours after Bill C-11 passed
third reading in the House of Commons (the bill receives second reading in the Senate today), the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is already calling for more reform. Expressing its support for Canada’s entry into the Trans Pacific Partnership talks, the Chamber argued
“issues still remain regarding Canadian policies on intellectual property and supply managementâ€”which we believe the TPP negotiations should address.” Based on the leaked IP chapter in the TPP
, it seems likely that C-11 will do little to ease the pressure to reform Canadian law.
