I am happy meeting by teleconference. Canada is a big country and Toronto
is a long way from were I live in British Columbia. We have a number of
question posted at the meta wiki that need input from all involved. We need
to decide if we will incorporate under "Wiki Canada" or "Wikimedia Canada"
at which point we can simultaneously send in the documents for incorporation
( which IMO should be done at the federal level ) and apply for charity
status. We should meet via teleconference in the next couple of weeks.

I've been invited to come do a talk at Schulich (York University) on
one of the following dates: January 11th; February 8th; March 15th; or
March 29th. Normally I would say no, because it's not worth the long
travel to do a small talk. But I'm curious to know if you folks might
be willing to do a meet-up on one of those dates? (Or more
accurately, a day or two before one of those dates.)
I'm half-interested just because I want to meet Canadian Wikimedians,
and half-interested in hopes that a F2F meetup might help move you
folks one step closer to becoming a chapter. I'd really like to see a
Canadian chapter :-)
I'm CCing my assistant James. If it looks like there's enough
interest, we'll say yes to Schulich and I'll let this list know when
I'll be in town.
