September 25th comes around once each year. October 2nd likewise. The subjects touched upon in Pat Zumstein's Open Letter come up constantly throughout the year and over the years. The number of people both close to and far from Gould's personal orbit who have publicly voiced their genuine dismay with the policies, politics, financially motivated 'censorships', lacunes, financially motivated 'promotions' etc have had little say at the GGF and probably don't expect to be published there. Since 2008 it is worse than ever. "Work it Glennie", a published 'tweet' from Dr. Penny Johnson.

Now that is really saying something. 

So most certainly "work it". What are you "working it" for anymore? Who are you "working it" for? 

If the GGF had no interest in the Stratford Steinway then just say so instead of giving out false information on the subject. If the GGF has no interest in preserving Gould's acetates then just say so. If the GGF is more interested in recruiting Stephen Fry as a 'jurist' for the next GG Prize than getting a consensus together for the issue of Glenn Gould's CBC audio/visual catalogue to the public then just say so. 

The GGF has nothing to do with Glenn Gould anymore, "visitations" to Dr. Penny Johnson notwithstanding.

Someone asked me why the recent Toronto Humane Society scandal wasn't mentioned on GGF?  

Beats me.
