I'd say, it depends on how bad you want to access that site ;-) I'm not
a Canadian citizen but wanted to access it bad enough. Only took me ~30
secs., as my Firefox is already configured for such situations. If I
were a Canadian citizen, I'd contact the HNIC at Xandros (a Canadian
based Linux distro mind you) & get their opinion on not being able to
access a Canadian gov't site with their operating system. Sound like a
plan to you? BTW, I believe "Peanut Linux" is also a Canadian distro ;-)
