Thanks Avri for leading with proposed motions on all these issues, and for
all your hard work for Council.

While I am in agreement with community concerns about 'excessive delay' in
resolving any new WHOIS policy, I feel strongly that 18 days (Jan 7 to 25)
is not enough time for Constituencies to have proper discussion and scoping
of proposals for study.  I think the BC could live with 30 days, so all the
dates after Jan 7 would move forward 12 days, if that is acceptable to the
majority of Council.

Kind regards,
