We welcome everyone to join the conversation.  Respectful disagreement and discussion is encouraged, but we ask all participants to keep their comments reasonable and rational, and refrain from personal attacks. If you have specific concerns, please bring them to the attention of the moderator (moderator@centreforinquiry.ca)

This discussion forum is open to everyone, regardless of sex/gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form.

Submissions to CFI Canada Discourse should be original content that has not been published online anywhere else, and we also ask that the authors not publish the material themselves for at least a week after it appears on cficanada.ca.

The editors reserve the right to make minor modifications such as correcting spelling or typographical errors, and to adjust the formatting for readability.  We may also recommend major modifications; these will require the approval of the author before being published.

If you have questions, or would like to submit a piece for publication, email the CFI Canada Discourse editors: ned@centreforinquiry.ca


The discussion is moderated as follows:

  • A contributor’s first comment is subject to review; subsequent comments will be passed as long as the guidelines are followed.
  • Comments may be automatically designated as spam if they contain 2 or more URLs, and will need to be manually approved by the moderator.
  • Comments may be blocked or removed at the discretion of the moderator.

If you have questions or concerns about moderation, content, or any technical issues, please contact the webmaster.
