Friday outdoor trips with mum--Friday September 30, 2016-- Julie , We’re still busy working to build the strongest case possible for Charter protection of the Internet. Wednesday is the deadline to officially submit our filing to the Supreme Court of Canada, arguing the Internet be made a protected medium of communication under section 2(b) of our Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Thanks to our foundational supporters we are so close to the $30K we need to fund this game-changing legal work ensuring your right to free expression online is protected. Now that we're almost there, will you chip in to help us get to our goal? Donate Now The outcome of this case will be felt worldwide, as the Supreme Court will be considering an appeal to a lower court’s decision that required Google to remove search results from its global index. Censorship at this level would be a huge setback to our rights to access information and express ourselves freely. The stakes couldn’t be higher and I’m hoping you will help take us to the finish line. If we win, we’ll have built a legal framework for online free expression that will inform court decisions concerning Internet censorship moving forward. We’ll establish a broad understanding of free expression online, and when it is and is not reasonable to limit such expression. We’re so close to the deadline. I hope you’ll take this chance to stand with us in this historic campaign. Thank you, Alana Schultz Director of Fund Development — OpenMedia

I arrived at the parents' place at 2:00 pm and found mum still not ready. Since I have learned from past experiences with seniors that it is best to let them find their own groove I had a nap on the sofa while she got ready.

We went to the H & W produce place to buy onions. But I forgot to buy the milk for dad. I will do it tomorrow along with the orange juice.  We got a great many things that I believe included two different varieties of chilli, ginger, shallots and the onions.  I got some apples for younger boy. There are many bruises on their apples but they are still OK.  I got the raspberries even though they seemed a bit too ripe. The last time I got the corn it was not good so I refrained from buying any veggies except the spinach and green beans mum wanted.

We went other places to buy mum's rugs for her bathroom and the non-slip mat for her bathtub. It was after six pm when we got back and mum was tired. I will continue to do the Friday visits as well as other outings as mum seems to be able to get about with some rests on the seat of her stroller.

When I got back I found this e-mail and thought this was important enough to put down here so folks will contribute to the sanctity of the Internet.
