Globe and Mail Poll on Sport Funding - Get out the Vote NOW!!
The Toronto Globe and Mail is having an on-line poll about sport funding. The question reads:
'Should your tax dollars go to support Canada's elite amateur athletes?'
As of 9 pm February 19, there were 191 YES votes and 232 NO votes (45% / 55%.) and the votes are coming in fast and furious.
As strange as it may seem, politicians pay attention to this sort of thing. We would ask you to pass this Bulletin down to members and clubs URGENTLY and urge them to get over to the Globe site www.globeandmail.ca and cast their YES ballots! (You can't stuff the ballot box because you can only vote once per computer) but lets DO it for sport! We do not know how long this poll will be up there, but carrying the YES is important! The poll is on the top right hand side of the home page.
