The only way I can see any progress to the conflicting opinion is if the home office is pressed to offer a clear and definite stance on the ownership and purchase of the items. However I have no clue if that would be a good or bad thing for the owners.
The problem is that the HO are being pressed, by the GTA, to offer a clear and definite stance that suits the GTA. Surely that much is evident?
