OLPC Canada and Canadian Sugar (Maple Syrup?) announced

The Belinda Stronach Foundation has launched a new OLPC Canada website describing their current plans, partners, and development of learning materials (and a new Sugar-like interface using aboriginal designs...) Thanks are due to BMO Financial and the Ontario government, and the other partners who helped bring the TBSF plans to fruition - most recently with a $750,000 grant.

They have published a map of the schools involved in their first-round pilot (some 2800 students and teachers in all), and are planning to expand it to 5000 participants before it ends. It's great to see all of these developments in North America at last. Mexico is also seeing an expansion of their program into Nayarit on the western coast, with their initial workshops beginning soon.
