fundraising for Beatty v AG Canada et al
- As of today, we have received $4,338.65 in donations for our Federal
Court case, Beatty v AG Canada, to compel the unconditional release of
the 1911 census. These are all donations from individuals except $100
from the Jewish Genealogical Society of Southern Alberta and $250 from
the British Isles Genealogical Society of Greater Ottawa. We are
looking for an additional $3,161.35. Since we have not yet heard from
some of our strongest financial supporters, I am confident we will be
successful in this fundraising effort shortly.
- Donations have flooded in even faster in the last two weeks than for
Beatty et al v Chief Statistician et al in early 2002. If your cheque
is not already in the mail - hold off.
Funds should arrive any day now from the Moose Jaw branch of the SGS
which should put us over the top. If we are still short on our
fund-raising goal of $7,500 in 2 weeks' time, I will let you know.
Also, we will need more funds if there is an appeal to the Federal
Court of Appeal.
