Ottawa is lovely. Do you ice skate? It’s possible the canal will be open for skating, which is well worth checking out.

"... I got to see my name in print in a real-life physical published book! ..."

Almost as good as your picture on the cover of The Rolling Stone ... 😉🙂 But congrats. Kind of a nice feeling -- I once had an article published in a computer hobbyist journal, and my name published in Hansard as a result of my letter to a Reform MP, though both were several decades ago.

In any case, when you're in Ottawa you might want to look up Conservative MPs Karen Vecchio, Conservative Shadow Minister for Women and Gender Equality and Youth, and Rick Perkins, Conservative Shadow Minister for Innovation, Science and Industry, particularly given that the Conservatives had passed several "anti-gender ideology resolutions" which I believe you had commented on earlier:

I had written to Perkins about a month ago, copy to Vecchio, asking whether he might rattle Statistic Canada's cage over a submission that I had sent them on their rather "misguided" call for "consultation on gender and sexual diversity statistical metadata standards". No response yet from either -- bit disappointed on that score -- and will have to follow-up with them next week. Details and link to my submission in this post of mine:

But I might consider publishing my letter to them as an open letter, particularly if it might help "The Cause", and if I don't get much satisfaction from them -- "gender ideology" may not be high on their list of priorities and neither may have subscribed to those party resolutions.

Wish I could be with you in Ottawa, but I'm in Portland, Oregon which is a bit too far away.

Congratulations! What a fantastic accomplishment. =)

Hm, I've never been to Ottawa...
