Hi Russell,

Thanks very much for asking those questions and forwarding them here.
Did you ask him about how FSF's relationship with FSFE works?  It
seems like we may want a similar sort of relationship between FSF and

  I forwarded your question onward.

I wonder if we are putting the cart before the horse a bit. Do we have a core group of people who have the time to dedicate to having something formal that is uniquely Canadian? I don't know that we have assembled the people-resources yet to compare ourselves to FSFE.

I wrote to Bradley Kuhn in December, in reply to one of their FAIF.us oggcasts, talking about how I wished there was an FSF, Conservancy and other such organisations in Canada. He wrote back saying that it comes down to leaders who are dedicated to the mission, and nothing is more important to them -- that they will dedicate the time/etc that is needed.

Do we know that person/group? I've come to realise I only have so much energy to dedicate, and I can't do much more as a volunteer than I am already. I would very much love to find and work with this person/group, whoever they may be.

We have a small group of people assembled in this list -- is that person and/or group of persons already among us? Do any of us know who else we should be inviting to this group to get involved?

Short term I think we may want to do some Bill C-11 organising, assuming we aren't already too late to have any additional say in that.
