…problem is I don’t know how much Canadians really give a damn about freedom of speech. As long as the money keeps rolling in and the digital TV signal is beaming, who the hell cares about anything else?
Having organized a few of these things, I can tell you that it is not that easy to get the numbers out. In fact, to get over 10,000, it’s a gargantuan task involving many networks of people. Heck, to get a few thousand is no walk in the park either.
So, to make it worth it, you either need
1) A number of networks who are on board
2) Something so mind boggingly serious that Joe & Jill Canadian are willing to fork out the travel expenses to attend.
#1 is not likely to apply in this case. #2 is also doubtful, although possible.
Maybe with the blogosphere, we can get the word out. Are people pissed off enough to shell out and show up? That is the salient question.
I contacted Michael Coren, and he’s hip to the idea of being a potential speaker, but we need some other heavy hitters to pull this thing off.
Who’s gonna ride with me on this?
