Not bad for a bunch of “University kids” on just another “Pub Crawl”.

Well we had many doubters but we managed to prove them wrong with an excellent turnout and even better numbers in the final tally of funds raised. I still remember the first year we put this thing together in 2003, only 42 people showed up and we barely broke $800, which seemed like a big accomplishment at the time.

This year we had about 160 turn out. So, drum roll… here’s the final amount:


An extra special thanks to Sebastien, Chris and everyone at StatsCanada – Census’06 office in Moncton, the team there raised almost $1000 alone!

Other big money raises, contributors and organizers were Danielle Bourque, Nataelle Levesque, Nadine Boudreau, Mandy Alward, Ruairi Meagher, Jason Tse, Laura Murphy (my nana), my parents Laura and Richard Copeland, and many others.

So a BIG thanks goes out to everyone! And if you requested tax receipts you should receive them from CBCF within the next 4 weeks. If you don’t get one but requested it, please let me know at:

BC$ = Behavior, Content, Money

The goal of the BC$ project is to raise awareness and make changes with respect to the three pillars of information freedom - Behavior (pursuit of interests and passions), Content (sharing/exchanging ideas in various formats), Money (fairness and accessibility) - bringing to light the fact that:

1. We regularly hand over our browser histories, search histories and daily online activities to companies that want our money, or, to benefit from our use of their services with lucrative ad deals or sales of personal information.

2. We create and/or consume interesting content on their services, but we aren't adequately rewarded for our creative efforts or loyalty.

3. We pay money to be connected online (and possibly also over mobile), yet we lose both time and money by allowing companies to market to us with unsolicited advertisements, irrelevant product offers and unfairly structured service pricing plans.
