Hey Highwater,

Good for you for contacting your MP. David Sweet spoke a couple of times at the CBC meeting and he is clearly supportive of the proposal (although that's not to say that his constituents should not still contact him with their thoughts). As somebody mentioned to me after the meeting, it's a good proposal for MPs to get behind - 25 mill is not a lot of money and it appears to be well supported by many Hamiltonians.

Interesting that you got the form fax complaint. When I asked Kennedy 'Who should we lobby to let our feelings be known?' he went out of his way to request that we avoid mass e-mails and form letters. Then he started talking about Hamilton's 'Friend's organizations' saying they 'meant well' but that their lobby efforts were 'sometimes misguided' (I'm paraphrasing). He is clearly keen to avoid the appearance that people are lobbying on CBCs behalf...

I think we are really close to landing this bureau. I hope more RTH readers will let their thoughts be known.

Cheers

Ben
