Further, I'll add that The Hamilton Spectator was not approached, nor were any other for-profit media outlets.

OpenFile was the only for-profit approached.

In fact, we did not approach Cable 14. (The process to issuing the letter was very organic and we reached out to all of our networks of contacts.)

The Spectator ran the entire letter unedited on their website and placed in in their top line-up for two entire days. They wrote an editorial expressing concerns about the proposed policy and called for open access at City Hall.

Cable 14 read the letter on their For The Record program and had a lively debate about media policy at City Hall.

CHCH covered the letter as well.
