Well, I must admit that given my busy schedule, I find it difficult enough to even visit WHT as much as I want to, let alone HHO or any other hosting forum. So would I frequent a Canadian chapter of WHT? Not sure.
Although, as mentioned ( www.webhostingtalk.nl
), other regional WHT forums can be quite successful. Another example is www.sgwebhostingtalk.com
. So there is definitely a possibility of having a moderately successful regional WHT chapter.
I think it really all depends on the "angle" you put on it. And the forum titles you create. Are they meaninglful enough to entice new signups to discuss local issues? And finally, obviously it depends on how many potential members you have. But given the size of Canada, I don't imagine you'd have a tough time building a decent member base.
Hey, offer us all a dozen Tim Horton doughnuts to join. You'll have us lined up at the door in droves...
