Leaders of the US, UK, India, South Korea, Mexico, etc use @creativecommons to openly license their images on Flickr. @JustinTrudeau and many cabinet members are stuck on all rights reserved. Why is Canada closed by default? https://t.co/reRjn0sHFk https://t.co/Ht8SI4Mxgz https://t.co/3pZPnzAwOw

This image combines 2 photos from Flickr of @JustinTrudeau and @EPN at APEC last week. The left pic from Mexico is @creativecommons licensed. The right pic from Canada is all rights reserved. Why is the Canadian government restricting use of its images? https://t.co/reRjn0sHFk https://t.co/2ufb7bUeg7

Government leaders around the world use @creativecommons to openly licence their images on Flickr. For some reason, not Canada. @JustinTrudeau @NavdeepSBains @melaniejoly and many more cabinet ministers are all rights reserved. Why? https://t.co/reRjn0sHFk https://t.co/Ht8SI4Mxgz
