It Turns Out That Pro-User Zealots Vote, Too

Canadian politician Sam Bulte who famously called critics of her close ties with the entertainment industry “pro-user zealots” who just wanted to silence her, has apparently discovered that perhaps a few more people than she thought were pro-user zealots… and they vote. She’s now lost her campaign to be re-elected. The news coverage doesn’t even mention the fuss about her relationship with big content companies, so there’s a good chance that whole issue had little to do with her loss. Still, it remains to be seen if she lives up to her announced plan to sue Michael Geist, her most vocal critic, now that the election is over.
