Jim Elve over at BlogsCanada, the site that selflessly promotes the best Canadian blogs, and contains the definitive directory of Canadian blogs, has been set upon by the lawyers of the Government of Canada for his parody of the Government of Canada site. Talk about petty! Only a complete idiot, or a federal civil servant’s lawyer, could possibly mistake Jim’s excellent site for an ‘official’ Government of Canada site. Nevertheless, Jim has been served with a threatening letter ordering him to take down his site or change it so it no longer ‘resembles’ the Feds’ site. This is what gives civil servants, and lawyers, a bad name. Give ’em hell, Jim! We’re all proud of what you’ve been doing to encourage and celebrate Canada’s bloggers, and give us a sense of community — a damn sight more than what the government has ever done to support blogging in Canada.
