The federal government may be forced to introduce a time allocation motion to move its copyright reform bill to committee, Government House Leader Peter Van Loan said Thursday. Introduced in the House last September, Bill C-11, the Copyright Modernization Act, has been under debate since Oct. 18. The government has accused the opposition parties of intentionally delaying the bill. Van Loan said in the House of Commons Thursday that there has been 75 speeches about the bill in the House so far. “The opposition is implementing its strategy of simply running up the score and forcing the government to impose time allocation in order to get anything through the House,” Van Loan said. “That being said, we want to see it go through the House. I will be calling Bill C-11 for further second reading debate on Wednesday and next Friday. I look forward to concluding the debate and moving the bill to committee, where bills are traditionally studied in detail.” Bill C-11 is the same as former Bill C-32 that died at committee stage when the 40th Parliament dissolved for a federal election in March. A similar bill, C-61, died on the order paper in 2009 due to a prorogation.
