FAQ | Unpublished



The Unpublished.ca portal is a series of web tools and forums to help Canadians participate in our democracy and to influence public policy decision-making. We strive to make it engaging, informative, effective and fun. Most of all, we ask that if you disagree with something someone has said, please do so in a respectful way. It’s one thing to disagree with someone’s opinion, it’s quite another to attack them personally for holding that opinion. So, please be respectful of others so that they will be respectful of you.
