Default Bill C-300 Prorogued 'Away' - Canadian Mining Abuses (post others)

This is one important Bill that is now... gone, as PM Stephen Harper recently was allowed by the Governor General to prorogue Parliament.

Urgent Action: Support legislation to hold Canadian mining companies to account for abuses overseas (Dec 22 2009)
The Canadian government has consistently failed to create meaningful measures to regulate the activities of Canadian mining companies operating overseas. A private memberís bill, number C-300, represents the best chance for urgently needed regulation. It is currently being reviewed by the House of Commons Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Development. http://www.miningwatch.ca/en/urgent-...buses-overseas
