    There are multiple threads/questions/comments that need addressing (least of which why are you up at 1:26 am fussing about CIRA Forum).

    While I am not as Tek Savvy as you, I know that the list of members is kept on a dedicated platform – not on paper Rolodex cards – which has a feature to extract the list (CSV or XLS format). How long should that “reasonably” take? And then send an email as an attachment?

    If not cost recovery why $500? Note that CIRA has provided that list for 25 years without any cost. Why now? And “what for” given that the money was going to be donated anyway? Would a reasonable person expect that to be $500?

    The CNPA also allows a member to come in to the office and take an extract of the list. I assume that CIRA staff should babysit that member for the 5-10 minutes. What woudl be a reasonable cost to do that? Just your opinion.

    BTW, I offered to give CIRA the tax receipt of $500 for a list of members. I also offered to come into the office as per the CNPA to take that extract (or have my representative do so). Silence, but fully transparent and accountable, just MIA.
