Online Petition CLOSED

We want to thank all who signed our online petition at Go Petition which was closed recently.

This petition was originally created to lobby the firm Iler & Campbell to recognize the results of the Special General Meeting held in February 23rd of 2008 which was carried out in accordance to the station governing bylaws and that resulted in the democratic dismissal and removal of non student board members Josie Miner and Doug Barret and its appointed managers Tony Barnes and Mike Phillips. This petition was aimed at getting this well respected Toronto firm to cease its representation of said dismissed and removed individuals and commence representation of the legitimate board members duly elected in April and May of 2008 as per the bylaws and by the democratic will of the volunteer and community membership of CKLN.

It has come to our attention that as of December of 2008, Iler and Campbell are no longer retained by CKLN 88.1 Inc. Therefore, the purpose of this petition is no longer valid. We hope that through the continued lobbying and pressure from our community allies and dismissed members, the people at Iler and Campbell came to realize that the folks passing as their clients were committing a grave injustice that ran contrary to the mandate and beliefs professed by their firm and our radio station.

The fight is not over yet, CKLN has contracted the legal services of a lawyer working for the multinational law firm McCAGUE PEACOCK, BORLACK, McINNIS & LLOYD.

So the struggle continues!
