Hollywood Reporter Tells It Like It Is

The first line of their report on the bun fight between James Moore and critics of his copyright legislation is dead on:
Canadian federal politician James Moore has lashed out at opponents of his made-in-U.S.A. copyright reform package as "radical extremists." (emphasis mine)
It also gives a clear-eyed explanation for why Moore is so frantic to ram this legislation through:
The Canadian mud fight over copyright reform comes as Ottawa looks to get back in Washington's good books after being placed by the U.S. Trade Representative on its "priority watch list" for piracy.
The Americans know who are calling the shots here. Moore should be ashamed for selling his citizen's personal property rights away on behalf of giant foreign corporations.
