Rules for Canadian Writers: Updated for the Current Millennium!

Jill Murray created this salient piece sometime in the past 24 hours – likely inspired by the shitstorm that she stirred up by having the audacity to question that unassailable guardian of Canadian culture, Access Copyright.


Jill’s piece at BookMadam.com caused such an immediate uproar that even John Degen, our Canadian Quixote, deigned to enter the fray.


I encourage anyone who somehow missed this insanity yesterday to go check out Jill’s piece, watch the video and then read through the comments thread. Then maybe take a look at the comments thread on the YouTube site.


Then make up your own mind.
