Totally agree. I'm thinking outside the square on this one and tapping into my other networks. As an example, I forwarded one of the pages from the site to the VIEW Club office who forwarded to the National Executive. This is part of The Smith Family, which has real cred with politicians. This effort must be wider than IT and privacy, so involving other interests such as women, disadvantaged children and education should put some umph under it. I also let Pia know that I've done this.

So look beyond the IT and privacy email lists to other areas where you are involved. If enough of the country is aware, this might be enough pressure to see it through.

Thanks for stating the importance of this, Roger.
