Unbelievable , over the past recient months we have been so very busy with;
requests asking for help related to MNR access charges;
dealing with growing membership, meetings with political parties; meetings with Human Rights Commission,and following up on legal issues;
corresponding with various News agencies,;
attempting to make clubs and groups, understand they cannot continue to allow MNR to remove bridges,culverts and create burms;
and on, and on, and for this reason we are looking for additional volunteers to fill these newly created positions as well as vacated positions in various districts and areas.
Join the cause to keep our Crown Lands and Lakes accessable for all taxpayers and not just a select few.
OntORA needs help from dedicated individuals for the following positions.
Each “Manager” (for lack of a better word) is not expected to do all of the work themselves. The key will be for each “Manager” to organize other members to help them and spread the work out. It is suggested that each Manager find at least one person from each district to help them if possible. Managers will be responsible for implementing the strategy set out by the Executive, contacting their district helpers on a regular basis for follow-up and support, and reporting results back to the Executive each month.
