Apparently, there's a big hubbub up in Canada over an embarrassing act involving Prime Minister Stephen Harper pocketing a communion wafer during a Catholic funeral. The video of the episode is getting a lot of attention... but now one of the main copies of the video has been taken down due to a YouTube copyright claim. Still, what's really odd is that the video was done by CPAC, but the takedown notice is from Radio Canada. As Michael Gesit points out, it's difficult to see what the copyright claim is, as the clip itself can be considered newsworthy and "fair dealing" (Canada uses "fair dealing" rules rather than "fair use") for others to show it.
