“The Canadian Copyright Act has ensured that I maintain ownership of my work and receive payment when others utilize that work connected to revenue gaining activities. In the digital age, writers are seeing wider distribution without compensation.  It is harder to earn a living, which truly makes it harder to keep creating.  I sincerely hope that the Canadian government recognizes the substantial contribution of creative artists to the cultural tapestry of Canada and ensures that through fair compensation, we can keep Canadian culture strong and vibrant.”

“All artists deserve fair treatment. We devote our lives to our craft. The government should make sure that our artists, who help define this country, can earn a living from their work.”
