We did one better than email. Matt Jelly personally approached and spoke repeatedly to OpenFile Hamilton's editor.

The letter was jointly signed by numerous independent locals - there was not attempt to speak for others.

RTH was not the lead on the open letter, they signed on.

The letter called for openness at City Hall.

I was approached to sign it and I gladly did.

I did so knowing the consequences to my standing within professional journalism.

I push for open data in all matters at City Hall (with the necessary privacy, legal, and other reasonable considerations)

I signed the letter because it was a strong stand in favour of access for all outlets.

I fail to see the arrogance in the letter.

Thanks,
