I agree with having a dedicated free software canada even if it can't give people tax breaks. I did discuss this with Richard Stallman via e-mail back in May or June of this year and that's when I found out about the Canadian laws. We need awareness of free software all over Canada. Canada has a strong reliance on Microsoft technology all throughout government. Which is costing tax payers more money than needed, they should take a cue from Netcraft that real servers run GNU\Linux.

I'm okay with policy/advocacy and no donations at all.  I'm in no
position to do anything towards any kind of fundraising -- not even
accepting unsolicited cash.

As our political system and laws differ significantly from that of the
US, I am quite certain there is a significant realm of purpose for an
fsf.ca.  And that's good enough for me.

However, if others wanted to carry another ball, I'm not the one making
decisions here.  I'm just offering to work a bit on what interests me

All them good things,
David Henry
