    Not to late to do so. We don't know the whole story. Something triggered this action, and usually when organized groups do so, they have their reasons. If the goal was to get attention, they have. Now it's clear this councillor will not fight for you guys. For now. He could be convince otherwise at a later date. The MCO Can't back off now IMO, but receiving 50 emails, max per councillor, is not interfering with them providing a service to others. That's BS.. They only read it once, but they can count how many people that supports this initiative

    Generally speaking it's best to go through city staff first, before going political.

    Implied it was bulk email, which is stupid because it's coming from different people. Goes to show you should write your own.

    schmoo told me they were already told no, hence the campaign. so the math is bent here.

    in other news, 1500 people plan to 'hardpark' at trim on may 2nd. apparently since they're not racing, its good to go. I hope casey has the night off.

    And then Allan said:

    Jeff you have sent the same email to me at least five times today as did another citizen and someone else has sent it twice. We are not experiencing repeated messaging on any of the hundreds of emails we receive.

    Respectfully

    And then I said:

    Allan,

    I did not send 5 emails to you. I omitted my address from the original. I sent 2. In retrospect that was a mistake.

    The Mayor was much more cordial at Place D'Orleans when I had a brief exchange with him on Sunday.

    You won't hear from me again via email or anonymously via a voting card.

    Respectfully,

    Jeff

    I've had a few run ins with Mayor Jim when he was an MPP on Porter flights home. He was always very cordial and polite and interested in our conversations.

    I feel it's always better to talk to a politician after you have talked to the right bureaucrat and are not getting satisfaction. This way it's complain. My lake association battled 3 municipal council since I bought my place. We finally won a couple of weeks ago. This conflict lasted over 25 years. Some things can only be won with political will

    I will be amazed if the City or OC will allow the use of park and ride lots.

    One could make a strong argument that it keeps the street clean if street racing or just the plain old hooligans. If it works for skateboarders, hell we'll get a real race track
