I propose creation of the group SOC.CULTURE.CANADA.  This group would
be similar to the other soc.culture._____ groups.  The group would be
unmoderated.  Postings would be allowed in either english or french.

I hope that readers of can.general or can.francais which are
newsgroups available only in Canada, would occasionally post articles
of interest to the rest of the world.

Desole' que j'ai oublie' les resultats du vote!
31 no/non
194 yes/oui
225 total

Ca fait deux tiers des votes, et plus que 100 plus oui que non.  Le group
a passe'!

More than two-thirds of the votes and more than 100 more yesthan no votes
were receiveds.  Hence, the group has passed.

Voting was closed early Tuesday 26/3/91.  The last vote was received
Monday evening 25/3/91.  After a waiting period of 5 days for interested
parties to verify their votes, the group soc.culture.canada can be created.

Thank you to everyone who voted.  And thanks to the people who sent
puns (oui vote yes!).  No thanks to the people who said the only
culture in Canada is in yoghurt :-).

Votes were received from all over:  Australia, Finland, UK, US, Canada, 
Switzerland, France etc.  (I apologise if I missed your country; I did
only a cursory search). 

Cheers/Ciao
