Hello John,

I can offer my support but I'm not sure what I can give you.  The most effective thing that an atheist group can do to diminish religion in Canada is to lobby for churches to pay their share of property taxes.

          Hello Darwin!!
    I read your Things and found them very good. But I am not writing you for any info; but for the last two years we have tried to get a group together.
And we have quite a lot of people that say they are interested,but they are all either working at a University, or teaching school, and do not seem to have the time to start any group.
   I myself think that we should put out pamphlets with info what we are about, I belong to the: "Humanist Association of Canada" and live in: "Hamilton, Ontario, Canada" 
   The reason I think this is: "is that if we have some people that have the time to come to the meetings, and try to learn something, we might get some where." With all the people around that have no religious affiliation, it would be possible.
   I will thank you ahead for any info you can give us.
