We currently do not attend if we have no sponsor ; for example we came to Montreal Linux Expo thanks to SkyEvents and Mandrake.

I couldn't find any sponsor for LinuxCanada Toronto in two weeks so I will not attend, only one of our members living in Ontario can come.

IMHO, we shouldn't spend LDP money for conferences, but if LIGDF can, it would be very welcome.

We try to do our best but we aren't free 365 days per year; we also have our real lifes :-)

Attending and giving talks requires carefull preparation, travelling abroad requires visa and administrative stuff, etc.
