This message from the President of 150 (North Atlantic) Wing, RCAF Association:
Dear Mr. Smith - we would support your cause - and rather than respond on a local level - we have many Wings accross Canada -and with National endorsement, we think the response of our organization would be more effective. To that end, I have sent your request to our National office. I will follow up with them for a reply. I trust this is ok with you? Thanks, Liz Moores.
I explained to her that we have deliberately not canvassed the national executives (at least not initially) because we wanted this to be a grassroots campaign, not a top down initiative. That is why we were leaving national organizations like the Naval Officers Association and Air Force Association to the end, so that veterans at the local level would have a say and a vote first.
