Now that school has started and summer is starting to wind down, I'd like to
start to move the Chapter
creation process forward, and give it a solid schedule.
I've made preliminary contact with a lawyer with the intention of getting
some assistance in drafting the various bylaws
that are required to give Wikimedia Canada a legal footing. I'm hoping
having someone with skill and knowledge will
shorten the time that it is taking us to tackle this task at present.
My intention is to keep the process as open as possible, and make available
the by-laws on wiki (and possibly on the
mailing list), so everyone can review and comment on them before we submit
them for official consideration.
I'd like comments or questions and concerns.
The list has been quiet during the summer, and I'm hoping now that school is
starting we can get a few things done.
First thing I'd like to mention is that Toronto has tossed its name into the
hat of contenders for hosting Wikimania in 2008.
If you can help, or even if you want to express your support, visit
