I do not know which is more absurd: The idea that a public meeting should not be publicly broadcast, or the idea that some bureaucrat thinks that he can decide who is and who is not "media."

I seem to be getting the message that the only people who are entitled to know what goes on at public meetings are those who can afford to take a day off work and go to them. Or those who are retired, independently wealthy or otherwise do not have to work at all. But for us long-suffering masses, the business of the City will be conducted in secret.

Joey, please accept my thanks for allowing a ray of sunshine in to what otherwise could be perceived as a cozy crony secret process.

I am a member and vice-Chair of the Hamilton Cycling Committee. This is a citizen's advisory committee to City Council. We meet at City Hall on the first Wednesday of the month at 5:45 PM. This is a public meeting, open to the public. As far as I personally am concerned, Mr. Coleman is not only welcome but invited to broadcast in colour video our committee meetings.
