  2. I would like to recommend Steve Buist of the Hamilton Spectator to you. He spoke to our CFUW Oakville Club in Feb 2016 on his investigative article: Code Red. He was very engaging and has a good power point presentation. I feel his topic would be of particular interest to your membership. His contact info is : sbuist@thespec.com
