good report/good work

but just wondering about how the sustainer income vs sustainer revenue to locals works?

it seemed like there was something up, with Vancouver getting over $10,000, over twice what the Vancouver sustainers brought in, while Halifax got slightly less to their local than their local sustainers brought in...

i though maybe it had something to do with the olympics, but by that token a lot of $$ should of gone to Toronto too, for the G20, but it didn't - Toronto got around half ot the money their sustainers brought in

anyways, it just struck me as odd, and i got to wondering how it works...

As far as I know the

As far as I know the discrepency there has to do with the fact that the VMC got a $4000 grant from Freedonia, 100% of which goes to the local.

Thanks for asking!
