Facebook and Canada

How come I only find these kind of news about where I live on other country web site? You see apparently the formation of a fast growing group of Canadian concerned about the proposed reform of copyright laws in Canada managed to stir up a movement that actually got the proposed law delayed and possibly change. I think this illustrate the power of the internet as a democratic tools, how with the interconnectivity of the internet and the accessibility of information it can be a way to motivate, mobilize and inform people. I think we are seeing the silhouette of the next governmental system, after capitalism and representative democracy we might finally have true democracy by the people directly. Hopefully an informed people, with enough wisdom or intelligence to understand and discriminate the information it finds.
