Jack Layton on file sharing

This article posted on the NDP Web site (apparently from the Edmonton Journal originally) is mostly general "Hey, our leader is cool!" propaganda, but includes the following quote about file sharing:

It was the end of Junos week, and with friends in the recording business -- along with serious initiatives to attract young supporters -- where does Layton stand on Internet music-file sharing?

"I'm a holder of a copyright myself.  But it's a book on homelessness and I don't mind if anyone wants to copy it," he says with a grin.  "I'm still not so sure how (file sharing) impacts sales -- some studies even say it enhances them.  I don't think the dust has settled on this yet.  When I was at university there was a great fear that photocopying was going to destroy the publishing industry and that hasn't happened.  It's sometimes best to muddle along, take things one step at a time and see what happens.  Society can have a way of sorting things out."

If there are quotes floating around, or better yet, official positions, on this subject from the other parties, then I'd like to know about them.
