Dear SPI board and members,

As you may have read in the news, FACIL, pour l'appropriation collective
de l'informatique libre (FACIL), is challenging the Quebec government's
manner of purchasing non-free software.

Can SPI join FACIL as an organisational member, to promote software in
the public interest in Quebec and to show solidarity for this move?
I'm not sure whether FACIL's policy on "Interventions au niveau politique"
is a problem, but it seems to stop short of party or electoral politics.

If it can, will it?
