Actually this was a decision by the chair, I do not remember the TF
actually voting on it. But I may have missed that.
My issue is that when the special Circumstance proposal was first
submitted I asked the chair whether it was necessary to submit an
opposing proposition, but was assured that the Special circumstances
proposal would not get special status and therefore submitting a
counter proposal was not necessary. Once I realized that the Special
Circumstance proposal was being given special status and submitted
the counter proposal it was later in the process it was given it less
then special status.
As for changing/repudiating my support for OPOC as Jordyn suggests;
since I don't believe it right for the RyC constituency to do so, I
won't do so at this point. I will possibly withhold approval from
the report however due to what I consider to be an inequity in the

FYI, below is the agreed Task Force summary of the call when the
this proposal was discussed on 18 December, 2006. A distinction was
the chair and agreed by the task force about the different status
OPoC/Special Circumstances proposals and the proposal made by
Avri/Milton/Wendy and by Marilyn.
As the two latter proposals have not been the subject of a straw
poll and a
distinction was made in their treatment because they did not
support across more than one constituency, I put them in annexes.
EXCERPT FROM 18 DECEMBER, 2006 TASK FORCE CALL:
"3 Discussion of new proposals to the Task Force
Jordyn noted that the Task Force will not spend significant time
proposals that don't attract stronger, consensus-based support than
existing two proposals in the Preliminary Task Force Report. These
can be included in the Final Task Force Report and can have brief
discussions to help the Task Force understand them and identify likely
points of consensus. The Task Force will take somewhat more notice of
proposals by its members as opposed to public comments, but all
will be considered to find policy positions that help get the Task
closer to agreement."

I still believe that our proposal and the special circumstances

give them the same weight as unsatisfactory.
