Perhaps I can help.
As the chair mentioned earlier, the act actually applies to commercial unsolicited e-mails that are applied. I think the e-mails you're talking about are of a non-commercial nature so they would not be captured by this act to begin with. If the organization was sending out e-mails and it was trying to solicit or sell a product, then it would come under the realm of the act. But if the organization is just sending out information that someone was used to receiving on the activities of that organization, that is not covered to start with under the legislation. The organization could continue to do that.
