WINNIPEG — After scoring a surprise electoral win in Sweden and getting high-profile support in Germany, The Pirate Party’s next port of call may be Canada, where a so-far small band of buccaneers are hoping to send copyright restrictions to Davy Jones’s locker.

Right now, they’re a handful of loosely-organized individuals spread across the country. But they want to become an official federal political party within the next few years and get enough support to persuade Parliament to relax proposed copyright laws they say are heavy-handed and a violation of personal privacy.
