Primer for Open Letter

This is a blog dedicated to motivating me and hopefully others to participate in government by sitting in front of their computers and writing down their thoughts. Pretty easy, huh? I access the Government of Canada website at for email addresses and click away.

I will post responses to the letters on this blog and would be glad to post open letters that you decide to write as well. I welcome any comments and criticism of my letter, logic or grammar even. Let 'er rip! For those of you who do not wish to get a Blogger ID to post comments I found a good anonymous way to gain access without revealing details. I guess that is what anonymous means. Check out this website for details: .

I have already written a letter this morning. I intend to fax or mail my letters as well so they have greater impact. The postage is free after all.

The only rules, of course, are all communications should be respectful no matter the hotness of your rant or comment. You (and I for that matter) will have to find creative ways to express very emotional subjects without flaming others. And if you have different ideas than the general direction of the blog then I think you have EXTRA impetus to post here; we all need a second look at our precious ideas sometimes. Also, make sure to spell and grammar check before you post or email.

Thanks and I hope you will consider participating in our democracy! I certainly am!
