Thank you for mentioning this site on your blog. We have had close to 100,000 hits since the site was launched. Any idea how we can reach more Canadians living in the USA...so that they can write to their MP's and influence the current government implement anti-racial profiling policies?

Hi Zool...thanks for dropping by the site, and I'm glad to hear that yours is getting so many hits.

I'm afraid I don't have much advice with respect to how to reach out to Canadians in the US. Personally, most of my local contacts are people from here or from other countries, but few if any Canadians. We've been here less than a year and my sources of info on this sort of thing are still the activist networks I have been a part of back in Ontario. I'd be happy to post links to any action alerts and so on that your group happens to put out, both here and at the Progressive Blog Alliance headquarters site, but I'm not sure to what extent that actually reaches Canadian expats. If you have an email update list, sign me up!

Sorry I couldn't be of more help, and good luck in your struggle! If there's any other way I can support it, let me know.
