I don't think it should effect the C4L North proposal at all . I see
these regional thinks as separate events. If it would effect any, I
think the C$L Northwest in Portland would be effected the most - but
either way, the regional groups should continue to move forward.
C4L being held in Canada may effect voting, I don't know. We'll have to
see what people vote and what other options appear. I do think there is
something to C4L being south of the border and C4L being north but now
that C4L is established and is not really the same as Access (and is in
a different time frame) maybe that distinction isn't as important as it
once was. Having recently been to Vancouver, I can tell you I'm more
concerned about costs then it being in Canada (although I guess it being
in Canada is related to the costs to some degree).
