    Since..

    Hi!

    "Since the issue of GCC has come into focus, special efforts were directed to.....".

    I wrote the previous sentence a couple of minutes ago, but when I read it again it seemed to me that "since" in this context will mean (because), although I wanted to use it as a conjunction. I could say "Since the emergence of GCC issue, special efforts...." but I prefer to keep the original expression. What about using the past simple form? I'm confused. Can someone help?

    Use "Ever since . . ."

    It looks fine to me, but Susie's suggestion is not a bad one.
