  1. Marianne, I take it this meeting will be camera since it is legal, and if so, why is this not in the notice of meeting?

    Whatever, will there be a public information component?

    • The agenda for the meeting itself will record that the item is confidential. I don’t know why that wasn’t stated in the press release. At this point in time, I do not know whether there will be a public component to the meeting. I expect at some point after the meeting, if not immediately when we come out of camera then shortly thereafter, there will be some information provided to the public.

What's your take?
