Councillors, FYI.

Thanks to Wolf for thinking of this. I had forgotten Thomas was not on the 
Council list yet. About that, Glen, perhaps as a courtesy to the incoming 
Councillors and to help them transition in, we could add them now rather than 
waiting for Wednesday?

Thanks Thomas for your explanations and thanks to Rosemary, Bill and others who 
have commented.

Adrian, I understand your comments and once again, if there is the slightest 
bit of hesitation in how this could be used, I am happy not to do it.

Perhaps we can all discuss on Saturday when we are all here. If we feel my 
presence there might be problematic, I can always let Thomas know there's a 
problem by Sunday. Short notice but better that than creating problems we don't
