 "Below are the email addresses for the key contacts at RBC including North Kawartha Township Clerk Connie Parent.  It is important that all correspondence is copied to the township so it becomes a part of the public record.  We have also included the email and mailing address to the RBC Office of the Ombudsman to whom one can send a quick email or letter expressing your concern. As a reminder, we ask that you be respectful. If we push too hard or become abusive or we put their backs up, they will walk away and not listen to anything we say. At the same time, we need to be clear why we want the bank to stay.   Please do not feel obliged to send an email - this is for those that choose to do so. The petitions are out at local businesses and online. We need everyone to attend the public meeting scheduled for Thursday Nov 2, 2017 at the NKCC at 7pm.   There are many opportunities to say your piece or show your support.  We need to keep the momentum going.   For those who have asked for some help getting going, below are a few starter sentences - choose one and go for it. We suggest not making your emails too long. Anything more than two paragraphs could easily be put aside to "read later." Most of all: You really only need to tell your story.    Thanks everyone SOB!
