EBOOK: Project Gutenberg Canada

First, there was Project Gutenberg. Then, there was Project Gutenberg Australia. And now: Project Gutenberg Canada. How exciting! In addition to showcasing Canadian content already available via the other Gutenberg projects, Gutenberg Canada will offer a safehaven for works which may not yet be public domain in the US and Australia. America has quite restrictive public domain laws, and Australia recently extended their "life plus 50 years" standard to "life plus 75." So, three cheers for Canada, the sole remaining on-line bastion of Life Plus 50 :)
