It appears that the page has been updated, there is now a CARIBBEAN
AND NORTH ATLANTIC ISLANDS SECTOR and it includes ST. HELENA
and ST. PIERRE AND MIQUELON in the sector. There are two other
sectors listed as well, CANADA SECTOR, and UNITED STATES AND
OUTLYING AREAS SECTOR.
I thank the AC and staff for resolving these last couple issues. I think this is
an excellent resolution to a couple minor issues and nicely clarifies what is
included without cluttering the policy itself. Further, I think this eliminates
any need for an additional policy to tweak the included islands.
I fully support this policy in its last call form.
