i neglected to respond to this one.

#1 needed 13 out of 25 votes to pass and if I remember correctly,  
which Glen can confirm, it only got 12 votes.

The confusion has do to the question that arose between Dan's  
original impression and my interpretation of the by-law that  
indicated that a motion needed a majority of the quorum number to  
pass and not a plurality; i.e. more votes then the other.

Later in the meeting Dan confirmed, and he can correct me if i  
misremember, that the rules required a majority of the quorum number  
to pass.

I do believe, however, that we still have the by-law obligation to  
vote on the PDP as this was not a vote on the PDP (33% threshold) but  
rather was a vote on an activity (50% threshold) that would be done  
before voting on the PDP.  I will confirm  the accuracy on my belief  
with legal counsel.
