    If no one has heard the Cape Breton TT has been cancelled by the lame brain politions of this country. Help us out and voice your disapproval of this move. I received these E-mail addresses from the TT organizers, lets help the politicians see the light! ( Remove the "~" from the addresses and change to "@")

    "Thank you for your sentiments. If you want to write in support here are some addresses

    Rodney J. MacDonald - Premier premier~gov.ns.ca

    Judy Streatch - minister of Tourism streatjl~gov.ns.ca

    Russell V. Mackinnon - MLA Cape Breton West mackinnrv~gov.ns.ca

    I just can't believe they cancelled the race. I've been planning my ride since last fall and it all surrounded the TT. Screw it! I'm heading west.

    Not really sure what was the downfall of this event, the rumors were flying out here. In early spring It was announced that the orignizers lost sanctioning for the event, then a few weeks ago it was reported that the goverment pulled the plug:confused . All I know for sure is that a lot of people are dissipointed.

    My guess is the Bastedos, aka CMA. Failing that, I think they really didnt have time to organize all this in 1 year. I'm no brain surgeon but I held off on reservations for hotels etc until I heard a definitive word.

    Don't fret, I'm hoping next year and get the CMA out of the equation!!!
