SBYC has for several years sent frequent informational emails to our members as well as to seasonal and transient renters, or persons who have requested information about our Club. We interpret this as an "existing business relationship", implying consent. See Frequently Asked Questions about Canada's Anti-spam legislation, enacted in 2014.
