Here's my plan all laid out for you guys. Why am I disclosing this info you may ask? Cuz I see no harm in it. If someone want's to copy what I'm doing or think's they've got a better way, go right ahead! I'd encourage you. This is not a freaking competition! Whoever opens the door for MMA is irrelevant since we'll all be able to walk through it.
I'd like to hear from all you guys who said "don't fuck it up". Should I send the following letter to the minister of Business & Consumer Services? YES or NO
Here's what my letter will include:
a) a respectfully written letter describing the current obstacles to getting MMA legalized on Ontario.
b) a description of why I feel MMA should be legalized. This portion of my letter will be referenced to the supporting appendices below.
c) a short discussion of how MMA's safety records compare to other professional sport (ie. mainly boxing and hockey)
A - the saftey records from every Athletic Commission I can get my hands on (Nevada being a must)
B - financial data of tourist spending (ie. airlines, surrounding hotels, restaurants etc...)
C - a petition signed by hundred of Ontario residents explaining how they would support the sport if it were legalized and why they feel it deserves to be legalized
D - a letter from the UFC, PRIDE, and K-1 which expresses their interest in potentially holding a future event in the province of Ontario if there were no legal concerns.
Should I go forward with this? YES or NO?
