I'm due to participate in an info session from CC next week for Ontario. I don't know if anything will come of it, but I thought this would be the first step to seeing if a local chapter would be available for us to consider.
About the formatting, do you typically post in html or compose mode? I use html due to formatting issues I've encountered in compose mode when I do use it. Don't worry about it for us, the content is what counts. :)
