I’m getting lots (and lots) of emails and links to comments found on individual’s web blogs written by amateurs across Ontario. This is exactly the right thing to do. Let’s keep talking to each other and offering our individual comments to the Ontario Ministry of Transportation: http://www.ontariocanada.com/registry/view.do?postingId=1902
We can’t possibly predict how Bill 118 will or will not impact amateur radio use in Ontario but we can predict with 100 per cent certainty that if we as an amateur community don’t work together and work hard we will get the legislation we deserve. So go out to your radio club meetings and talk this up. If you feel it appropriate, activate your community service telephone calling lists and ask everyone to make sure that their voice is heard. Alert all your participants at Field Day.
Now is not the time to create a petition or take the next action steps. We may well find that all is well as a result of our efforts. Sometime after June 17 we’ll likely know more about how or if Bill 118 will affect amateur radio operation in Ontario.
Until then, keep up the good work. (And don’t hestitate to leave comments on this blog too so all can read them.)
