Obviously using a Ubuntu bug jam to start one isn't likely to work.
Maybe seek out other local groups and see if any have members who are
looking for a group closer to where they live.  Search with Google for
"linux <town name>" and see what shows up.  I did this and found one
starting in Sudbury, ON (http://slugonline.org).  Too far for you but
there may be some users in-between.  You could also target some
linux-related product enthusiasts like EeePC or Tivo with hacking

You could also advertise a "Canuck-Yooper Area" LUG (CYALUG?) at
Penguicon (http://penguicon.org) or Ontario Linux Fest
(http://onlinux.ca).  I might be willing to drive up there at least
once and maybe bring some of those annoying Canadian geese to kick
back across the border.

But the bug triaging process is an online activity so not having an
active LUG doesn't really limit you except for the inability to pool
funds for pizza and beer.
