I agree, and I think it is an avenue that should be pursued. But let's
focus on that after the hackathon is taken care of.
I called my MP, Sophia Leung, and got through to her assistant, Irene.
Irene said she would pass the message on to the MP. Hopefully we can
get some Canadian government funding for OpenBSD. I paid my taxes;
I should have a say in how they are spent!
