I think there's a fairly large number of us on this list.(at least 3 from Vancouver) If you want a good list, go to extropy.com mailing list section, and request the user list for exi-can.

Doing the same with for extropians, I found 8 .ca people, along with a few .com's who I know are Canadian. I would guess 5-10% of this list is Canadian.

Actually, let me change that guess, I just checked exi-can, there are 60 people on that list, and there are 340 on extropians, so it is *possible* up to 20% of the extropian list is Canadian! I could verify this by cross-checking the names, but I'm too lazy right now.
