Canadians: Twi-Can Con hears your convention plea:

Fellow Canadian Twilighters,

It has come to our attention that we have been left out.

Various Twilight conventions have been planned for the upcoming year. Now where does Canada come into this?

Is our fan base not as large? Is our passion for Twilight not strong enough? Are we just that unimportant that we don’t deserve a convention of our own?

I’m pretty sure the answer is no. Remember Twilight: Live@Much? Enough said.

Rachelle Lefevre (Victoria) is actually from Montreal, Canada.

I’m sure we’re not the first to notice this; but instead of just moping around, we’ve decided to actually try and make it happen.

Our first step is to get it out there; which is where YOU come in.

All you have to do is join the group and invite all your Twilighter friends.

Once we reach a large enough number, we plan to contact several fan sites and get in touch with those who can help us get this off the ground.
