Talking Constitution to Canadians for Language Fairness
This weekend is the fifth annual St. Patrick's Day brunch organized by Canadians for Language Fairness in Vars, Ontario. I will be making a presentation about our project. Please come say hello if you can.
I also wanted to add a note about the fundraising, because some of our existing backers have expressed concerns about the pace of the fundraising campaign.
From our point of view the campaign is going very well. This one is a bit different than our previous two campaigns in that a great deal of the fundraising is happening offline. Another key difference is that this campaign, contrary to the other two, is not an "all-or-nothing" campaign. Even if we don't quite reach our $85,000 goal we will produce the documentary and start the campaign to fix the constitution, in good part because we are able to combine this production with that of our other project, A Right to Arms, and save tons of money on travel expenses. And finally, another big difference between this project and our previous ones is that we will continue to raise money for it once the documentary is produced, because we intend to generate public support for our revised constitution so that we are ready to push for it should certain prime ministers manage to bungle into a constitutional crisis.
In short, we are very pleased with how this project is going.
