Hi All
I had  numerous  phone calls  with the  ED at  the  Consumers Council of
Canada and they provide  an important  contirbution to the  NARALO
 community from a end user perspective. Their  organization  has a  mandate
to deal with the consumer concerns of Canadians.  I have worked this group
in the 90's on other issues  so they have been around along time.

I  endorse them as a NARALO ALS
