All's Well that Ends Well...

"Our remedies oft in ourselves do lie"
- William Shakespeare


Our minority Liberal government has collapsed in a historic non confidence motion (171 yeas to 133 nays) presented today in the House of Commons.

Prime Minister Paul Martin will visit the Governor General early tomorrow morning, which will prompt Madame Jean to dissolve the current Parliament and set an election date, likely January 16th or 23rd (2006). Today's non confidence vote was the first of its kind in Canadian history; it was the first time a motion actually stated that the house had "lost confidence" in the government.

Hi, As part of some work I'm doing for a client, I need to talk to people who try to make friends on the internet and who often search the web for related information. The research is mostly based around keyword ('leisure time' for example) selection. I've contacted people using leisure time but I need to contact more. Can you suggest where else to look?
TIA
