The forums and chats on www.albertasenator.ca are open to everyone, so feel free to join in the debates in the spirit of respectful dialogue. My intent is to promote an 'open competition of ideas in a public arena – a national conversation.' (as Judith Maxwell once described civil society). Disagreements and constructive arguments are welcome as part of the discussions; however, we do need to establish a protocol to avoid abusive or insulting comments. Please remember that people of all ages and demographics, and from all around the world, could be accessing information conveyed on this site. School children, those wanting to learn about Canada, or anyone else for that matter should not, in my opinion, be subjected to language or material that is not appropriate.
With that in mind, you should know that the site is moderated. Our moderator reserves the right to delete any message, in whole or in part, that is
- contrary to the principles of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms,
- pornographic or otherwise unsuitable for dissemination, and
- designed primarily for the purpose of advertising products for sale.
If the moderator does take down your message, he will give you an opportunity to repost in an approproiate manner. You may contact the moderator by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
