YouTube’s Copyright Policy by ADoseOfBuckley
I’ve had some family videos, shared privately within my family, receive a take-down notice because of some bit of music that was playing in the background (noisy and barely audible but identifiable I guess).
So I recognize the frustration of real content creators who are legally using content but get caught-up in near but not totally perfect algorithms that drive most of what Google does.
Some times a little human intervention would go a long way.
Save Rigaud Mountain
A friend of mine started this petition to save the remaining forested areas on Rigaud Mountain. Please consider signing it to preserve some of the remaining wilderness around Montreal.
Guess where we spent the afternoon?!
Spent the afternoon skiing at Belle Neige in beautiful conditions!
Michael Geist’s Analysis of the TPP
Now is a very important time to be following Michael Geist’s blog, as he’s analysing the TPP in very clear and understandable terms. The actual agreement is over 6,000 pages long – probably the longest international agreement ever written and one that no one will ever read, let alone understand, entirely.
But Michael is breaking it down, piece by piece, and pointing out the impacts on our daily lives and the inconsistencies with Canadian values.
So contact your Member of Parliament, and let them know that you did not vote for the TPP. That the Liberals were elected to throw out these piece of Stephen Harper Americanization of Canada and keep Canadian laws made in Canada!

And in a sense, the Apple Watch does as much to represent the pitiless passage of time as an hourglass does. The forward march of technology: you can fight it but you can’t stop it!
Free Trade vs the TPP
If you don’t know what the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is you’re in for a nasty surprise!
Michael Geist has written extensively on the subject, and his blog is a great place to start learning about it and the impact it will have on Canadian lives if it gets ratified.
All Canadians, let your MP know you want to see major changes to avoid handing over control to foreigners and big corporations.
