Do you own a Canadian domain name?
I am supporting a local candidate, Kevin McArthur, for election to the board of CIRA.
CIRA is the Canadian Internet Registration Authority. This little known organization plays a role in our national sovereignty, our digital rights and our online economy in Canada.
The reasons why I am supporting Kevin are:
1) He’s demonstrated strong leadership in support of open data and net neutrality (see www.kevinforcira.ca for his track record).
2) He is open-minded, hard working and extremely intelligent. He is a person of integrity.
In order to vote you need to own a .ca domain, and you also need to register (for free) as a CIRA member. CIRA doesn’t make it easy to register and vote, but Kevin is a candidate who is worth the effort.
