        RE: Toronto Canadian Association for Equality looking for volunteers

        Equality Canada (the group that put on the Warren Farrel talk last week) is looking for volunteers in the Toronto area. Being based in the UK myself I was unable to help but in my twitter exchanges with the group I said I would ask here if any AV4M supporters who live in or near Toronto would like to help.
        Hope I'm not out of line putting this notice here as I am neither webmaster, founder or a site admin here but I am working on assumption that AV4M and Equality Canada share enough mutuality of goals that it will be seen as a positive - if I am wrong about that I apologise and by all means feel free to withdraw this message.
        I don't know the details of the voluntary work specifically as tweet limitations don't encourage much fine graining.
        If you are interested in helping though the best way forward is probably to send a tweet to the group stating this code "AV4MVOL" and ask them for further details of how you might be able to help. The code is just to let them know that you are responding via AV4M as I told them I would pass on the request for help made to me (this was before they realised I was not based in Toronto myself on a permanent basis) to any of you guys here who might live in or near Toronto.
        You can contact them on twitter by tweeting to @equalitycanada or email @ info@equalitycanada.com but please be sure to put the "AV4MVOL" code in both the tweet and\or the email so that they will know who you are and that you are interested in volunteering.

          Canadian Association for Equality tweeted me this morning with the following information:-
          "..the Canadian Federation of Students just voted to condemn our groups. But all this attention has only made volunteer recruiting easier! "

            Thanks in large part to what you have written Tigerman, I did join CAFE, paid my membership, and have been in contact with someone who has a few things that I can do for them that match my skillsets, so thank you for your persistence.
            From what I have seen, they are setting some very high standards that men's movemenets in the rest of the Anglosphere could look at and emulate. I admire their reasoned stance during that whole Warren Farrell debacle at U of T, the calm manner in which it was handled really highlighted who the hate-filled lunatics are, and it sure isn't the men's rights movement.

              Wow delighted you made contact with them - I am also very impressed with them. Lets face it they are deep in hostile territory and everything they do is being scrutinised carefully I'm sure.
              Even though they seem squeaky clean their enemies seem determined to misrepresent what they are about so even the slightest bit of anything that could be construed as "ammo" by their bigoted opponents would undoubtedly be jumped on, distorted and exploited for all it's worth.
              They are a smart bunch and represent a real vanguard to rolling back the socially destructive forms of feminism that rooted itself in academia then outside into the very mainstream - this as now rather tiny group represents the beggining of the fightback to restore some sanity and decent standards first on campus then outwards to link up with other efforts to eradicate the "blue meanies" cult of mainstream feminism in the wider community and in our institutions.
              The snowball has started rolling down the hill!

                    A Panel Explores the Experiences of Gay Fathers

                    How does a gay man become a father? What reaction do gay dads face from friends, family and the public at large? What resources are available for these families?

                    Location: Canadian Centre for Men and Families (152 Carlton St, Unit 201)

                    Are you a gay, bi or trans father? We want to hear from you!
