  1. Hi Alex —

    Not sure how they will look but, on your first, point, Canada is going to move towards e-petitions.

    Last week in the House of Commons, MPs voted in favour of MP Kennedy Stewart’s motion to allow e-petitions. Kennedy, an NDP (opposition) MP was pretty pleased.

    Kennedy’s page on his e-petition motion:

    .. his Web site:

    .. why this is a big deal:
