The OCA has received a copy of the sneak preview presentation package and has been involved in discussions on the planning of this centre. Unfortunately, cycling has not been included in any plans to date, but the Canadian Sport Centre is very aware of our concerns and needs. This meeting will be an opportunity to ensure cycling's voice will be heard. Several OCA staff and Board members will be attending. Members are welcome.
