About the PEIACSW Blog
The Prince Edward Island Advisory Council on the Status of Women is an arm’s-length from government advisory agency. The nine members of Council are appointed by government to work for equality and to support women’s full and active participation in social, legal, cultural, economic, and political spheres of life.
Opinions expressed on this blog are not necessarily those of the Council Chairperson or individual Council Members or Staff. They do not necessarily reflect the final policy views or recommendations of the Council. Rather, the ideas and comments are meant to reflect evolving and emerging thinking on issues of importance to Prince Edward Island women, girls, and families. We reserve the right to explore ideas, to make mistakes, and to learn and refine perspectives through interacting with readers.

Members of the Advisory Council on the Status of Women set guidelines for posts to this blog at a meeting September 24, 2007, and in e-mail discussion following.
• All comments will be moderated.
• All anonymous comments will be rejected.
• All comments that provide no return e-mail address will be rejected.
• Comments that include personal attacks on individual Council members, staff, or community members will be rejected.
• The ACSW team is committed to interactive dialogue, but the staff is small and cannot promise responses to all comments.
The PEIACSW blog is being launched by staff on a trial basis, as of October 2007. Council members will be asked to assess and evaluate staff and Council time investment as well as blog contents, comments, and early effects at the next Council meeting, November 26, 2007.
Council will decide whether or not to continue the blog at the January 2008 meeting, but the blog can be cancelled and deleted at any time at the direction of Council.
Blog policies can be changed with the approval of a majority of Council members at any time.
