    On number 1, I will probably run but what happens will be up to the voting members. My last opponent didn't appear to show up for the last voting members meeting just concluded a week or so ago.

    There is a surprising amount of anti-vax sentiment. I am getting my vaccination as soon as I can. I volunteer to be a guinea pig. It may be useless due to a future mutation of COVID but at least it...

    I believe we have until the end of March 2021 if my memory of the government website is correct. I will be talking to Bob Gillanders, Hal Bond and Fred McKim about this tomorrow, I suspect.

    A WADA violation would also be grounds for removal of an executive or even a voting member according to the WADA regulations that CECC is pushing. So if I had to take my insulin and blood pressure...

    Changing bylaws in such a way that the structure of the organization changes requires a 2/3 majority. If we have an ethics committee similar to the one on the books no change is required. If as...

    FIDE is under Swiss law. We are under Canadian law and the NFP act. We cannot configure such a committee in the same way as FIDE has done theirs.
