Thanks for that feedback, Leslie.
Based on this assessment, I believe that John's policy proposal should
be transitioned over to the ACSP, rather than being adopted through the
policy process. As a suggested change to operational procedure, I think
I would support John's proposed changes. I'm still undecided on whether
to support Owen's proposal to remove section 7, but at least would not
