I don't have any real concerns about the regularity of what's being 
suggested (not to diminish your concerns) I'm just seeking to understand 
what's being suggested. I'm still poring over the volume of submissions 
and transcripts in order to get a handle on the context in which this 
motion was made.

It continues to be difficult to participate in remote council 
discussions. It would be helpful if the AV staff worked out a way that 
we could create a Skype bridge directly into the PA system so that we 
get a high-fidelity experience. I understand that there were 
extraordinary difficulties with the Morocco AV, but under ordinary 
circumstances bridging the teleconference facility with a Skype 
connection into the PA should not be a very difficult undertaking.
