New ministers of Heritage and Industry

The main departments involved with copyright reform are Industry and Heritage.
Wikipedia is quick on the uptake with an article on Bev Oda, the new Conservative Heritage minister. She has a history in broadcasting, was once the commissioner of the CRTC, and has been the Heritage critic.

Maxime Bernier, the new Industry minister, is a lawyer, businessman, and member of the The Montreal Economic Institute.
Bernier supports the idea of a flat-tax instead of taxes tiered for income.
