    We've made a splash and have asked everyone to hit pause. To set things straight:

    - we were in contact with the City and had been given a flippant no
    - follow-up contact opened the discussion again, but at no point did someone mention an application
    - at this point, the staff who have been dealing with us will be aware of the Councillors getting these emails and they now have our insurance summary in their hands
    - if we don't get no follow-up in 1 week, I'll bug the staff again.
    - next step will be phone calls to Councillor's Monette, Blais, Hubley and the Mayor
    - if we need to, we'll mobilize the community again

    We're pushing a big rock up a steep hill, but all we can do is try.

    Thanks for the support.

    Again, I cannot stress the fact that people need to write the letter in their own words. It will make sure that every voice is heard, and it speaks so much more loudly than a form letter. I have been involved in actions where the city (and prov and fed government) support was needed to help, the actions of a lot of people writing unique letters makes a far louder impact, and will motivate people whom you wish to garnish their support.

    No argument, but marshalling that kind of effort is not easy. If we need to let loose the hounds again (something I expect), we'll definitely flag this option to everyone.

    OC: fuck-off
    US: go to council
    COUNCIL: you need to talk to OC first
    US: we did, got fuck-off
    COUNCIL: ok, well fuck-off was not formally documented so... go back to OC and get formal fuck-off?

    Thanks Roby for this message. Stephen has received a few similar messages, and Stephen has asked OC Transpo to look into this and advise.

    Very best,

    But there's a bigger point here. The 1-series is the last car that BMW engineered before the Germans, as a car-making culture, fell out of love with driving.

    pay 5$ to stand in a parking lot night. reading it makes you feel old.

    but they had to move their night because a country band is playing the CTC and the busses need to bus orleans country people.

    so, good to know the bus company can bump a group out at whimsy.
