A new round of trade talks threatens to kill Canadian Content regulations:

The next round of Trans-Pacific Partnership trade negotiations in New Zealand on Dec. 3 has Canada under the watchful eye of tough American negotiators who want a bucket list of concessions from us, including the possible removal of content regs that Hollywood views as anti-competitive and a restriction on free trade. The talks are carried out behind closed doors and not subject to parliamentary approval. Musicians, music industry associations and nationalists should consider organizing a campaign to make sure our negotiators don't cave to American demands. You can view the full The International Intellectual Property Alliance (IIIPA) document  here.
