Creators calling on Ottawa

Hello, hello? Ottawa? I'm sorry but there's no nice way to say this. For a decade now, educational institutions have been ripping off writers who tell Canadian stories . . . writers like, well, me. They have been using our work and flat-out refusing to pay for it. They're stone-walling. We're tired of it. Will you please fix the broken Copyright Act, please? @JustinTrudeau, @pablorodriguez, @FP_Champagne, #IValueCdnStories, #cdnpoli, #creatorscallingonottawa.
