Taking some initiative, Joe, VE3OV, who is the ARES EC for Toronto North York, dropped by and talked to MPP Kathleen Wynne. Joe explained to Ms Wynne how amateur radio operators in Ontario were being negatively affected by Bill 118 and how the time-limited exemption from hands-free legislation should be made permanent. Joe said he got a fair hearing and Ms Wynne said she’d like to learn more about amateur radio and Bill 118.
This is how amateur radio operators in Ontario will get a permanent exemption to Bill 118. It’s called talking to your MPP. Do it respectfully. Use simple language to explain what’s at stake for the people of Ontario. But, most importantly, JUST DO IT!
