4— President’s Report

Mr. Hugo Landry, Sub-Group Interim President, presents a summary of the Sub-Group’s activities. He explains that following the President’s resignation,  being Vice-President, he had to take on the responsibilities at a moment’s notice. We organised many luncheon meetings to discuss difficult negotiations with the government then in power. We worked hard toward member visibility on social media. The government was defeated and the current government is more attentive. We participated in the National Annual General Meeting, meeting with Sub-Group Presidents, and in the CS AGM, which allowed us to compare our views with the rest of Canada. Hugo ends by saying that Renaud will present the Treasurer’s Report and asks if there are any questions.  

The Assembly President asks if there are any questions concerning the President’s Report. Miguel thanks Hugo for holding the fort.

5— Annual Financial Report

Denis introduces the Treasurer, Renaud Guiard who presents the Sub-Group financial report.

The Assembly President asks if there are any questions concerning the Treasurer’s Report. A member notes that the cash balance does not appear in the printed version of the financial report. Renaud forgot to print it. Hugo verifies online and confirms that the cash balance is there. He presents it to the members.  

Renaud proposes the adoption of the financial report and is seconded by Jean-Pierre.

The President asks if someone demands a vote.

The financial report is adopted unanimously.
