This October in Montreal, Canada the 16th annual AAI convention

Atheists Without Borders
AAI-HC 2010 Convention

Local hosts: Atheist Freethinkers and CFI Montreal

It is here! The most anticipated North American atheist convention of the year. With fresh line of speakers and plethora of entertainment, you sure don't want to miss this event.

Join us in Montreal for AAI's annual North American convention, "Atheists Without Borders." This theme expresses our vision of an international movement, going beyond political and cultural borders, uniting atheists and humanists in one virtual nation defined by our commitment to freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, human rights, critical thought, science and reason. This event will be AAI's first North American convention outside the United States and the first in collaboration with Humanist Canada, a national organization.

Our roster of esteemed speakers includes both American icons of freethought and outstanding Canadian and European scholars and activists. The three-day convention is centred around more than twenty workshops as well as several plenary sessions, addressing issues of keen interest to nonbelievers, such as religion-State separation, secularism, the history of freethought, the defence of education against religious encroachment and strategies for combatting fundamentalism -- in particular islamofascism. Join us as well in congratulating this year's Richard Dawkins Award recipient, Susan Jacoby, author of Freethinkers: A History of American Secularism.

Hi Drew,
I write letters to the post from time to time trying to explain a bit of biology in response to an editorial or letter that gets it wrong. I shudder to think at what we'll read tomorrow (July 24) after Hitchen's article about vistigial salamander eyes.

Have't been published there yet. Good for you with the Maclean's, I saw that one!

Hello to everyone here. I got a letter to the editor published in MacLean's this week, in response to the Ontario legislature and their cowardly continuation of the policy of "praying" before conducting real work. Is anyone else here into writing letters to publications, to counter theist dogma and promote a more secular society?

Anyone from Northern Ontario?

I'm located in Ottawa. I wasn't born here, but I have finally settled in. It's good to see that this network is growing, despite some of the initial bumps.
