Just bringing the list to this page.
They're doing a black out right now to protest the potential SOPA legislation that could crush them and sites like this one. Or just remove a ton of content because of copyright infringement.

Not sure what you need to change there, why is it all on the "talk" page rather than the article page?

They wouldn't accept it as an article.

I do find humour in the fact that the Government of Canada is not good enough as a reference and being credited with developing the Canadarm isn't notable to wikipedia.

Michael Zubko could be a challenge. I can't find much on him via the google.

I think the forum messed up your link. The Jan Zurakowski page has pictures and everything. I didn't know he was still alive until 2004.

Have you tried here
http://www.nnsl.com/frames/newspapers/2 ... 03zub.html

Go to Canada's Aviation Hall of Fame and you will find a picture and short write up about him..

Cheers...Chris

Mike Zubko was one of the first CAT members (before the TATC for you young folk). You might find some of his early 'decisions' interesting to read. :shock:

Larry MacKay was one of the founding members
of the Tribunal too, and what Enforcement did to
him was pretty far out there. They never even
paid to replace his PC that they illegally seized
and damaged after breaking into his house with
an invalid search warrant.
