Don't the people have a say in this?
I do not care how deeeeep the industry's pocket is, in a democracy the ultimate decider is still the PEOPLE --- those who vote, that is
The industry can only get something going if the people let them - and in this case, the people still have the right to SUE the government (and indirectly sue the politicians) over the passage of the laws
Since this happens in Canada the Canadians have to mobilize themselves to see that such laws be overturned and the politicians who are on-the-take be punished accordingly
No the people don't have a say because Canada is a republic, just like the USA, NOT a democracy. We vote for representatives to supposedly make decisions in the best interest of their constituency (which is totally laughable). What we actually have done is created an elected oligarchy where the only people who benefit from anything are the people in power and those with the money to keep them in power.
