I have ZERO issues with Anti-Harassment policies [they are NOT the same as "safe space" policies]!

While I'm uncertain at this point how I can help - I have a lot of confidence that I can.  I've heard from at least one video I've watched, that carrying boxes is sometime needed - I can do that!  I live here in Ottawa and can be available, as much as you need me during the conference.

So long as you're fine with our code of conduct, which I mention only because of what you said, welcome.  Otherwise, you may wish to reconsider.


We'll be figuring out where and when soon.  Some years we have more volunteer tasks than others.  We'll know more next week.

Thank you.
