At work. You? <RLim> good <RLim> having a meeting. do you want to sign in? <RLim> need 5 more for quorum <oxpirate2> Want to disconnect oxpirate? I left irc on on my laptop. <RLim> don't have to. just /msg your e-mail and I'll e-mail you the verification code <RLim> The one week notice seems to have effect on quorum <RLim> if mailout does not go out in one week before the meeting, we tend to have lower turnout. People do plan for a week I guess <oxpirate2> RLim: pm? <mordecai> I dunno, it's pretty much always a low turn out. <Wilson> hence why quorum is getting lowered (although I think it is still higher than parliament's) <MHoude> Really? Parliament has a quorum less than 10? <Wilson> 9 I think, definitely not more than 20 <RLim> you mean Canadian Parliament's quorum is less than 10? <RLim> out of? <phillipsjk> 308 <mordecai> Yeah, 10 would be a good quorum for the turnout we tend to get on here. * RLim gives voice to oxpirate2 <RLim> what a bunch of slackers :) <phillipsjk> The constitution I am looking at does not say much about the composition of the EB. <Wilson> check under 'officers' <RLim> 4 more <RLim> phone a friend :) <mordecai> None of my friends are pirates :( <Wilson> I brought in ox that way :) <mordecai> hahaa, yeah I keep trying to recruit them. Sooner or later they will just give in if I keep harassing them enough. <Wilson> thats the spirit <phillipsjk> The is an elections section for the PB, but not EB. <phillipsjk> *PC <Wilson> https://wiki.pirateparty.ca/index.php?title=Constitution_2012-06-20#IV.1_Election <phillipsjk> OK, Thanks. * seaside (firstname.lastname@example.org) has joined #canada <seaside> John Tibbs here <phillipsjk> Greetings, /msg Rlim for voice <Wilson> Hey Mr. Tibbs pm RLim your email address to confirm membership <Wilson> too slow phillip <phillipsjk> My client thinks I was first :P <Wilson> lol * webchat_1845 (email@example.com) has joined #canada <seaside> Just viewing from Belize, we are trying to setup a Belize chapter...have any good resources or documentation so we can get started down her <seaside> here <RLim> glad to hear it seaside. you can check out our website pirateparty.ca or wiki.pirateparty.ca <RLim> also my.pirateparty.ca <seaside> send to firstname.lastname@example.org * gregeh (email@example.com) has joined #canada * dysonsphere (~firstname.lastname@example.org) has joined #canada <RLim> members please pm me with your e-mail to get vocied <RLim> *voiced <Wilson> hey dyson * patcon has quit (Ping timeout: 240 seconds) <dysonsphere> hi. sorry I'm late. coaching my son's hockey game <RLim> since I am waiting Wilson do you have our Ottawa's candidates e-mail <RLim> I still ahve to add him to candidates mailing list <RLim> and one other person I think <Wilson> I believe I sent it to you but I'll pm it again * patcon (~email@example.com) has joined #canada <RLim> hi gregeh * RLim gives voice to dysonsphere <seaside> I see your policy is on drugs... we are trying to focus on improving internet infrastructure with minimal damage to the existing environment in the Caribbean i.e. islands wildlife preservation etc.... <RLim> 3 more to go <phillipsjk> is CCitizen actually awake? <Wilson> thats why its 3 <Wilson> otherwise it'd be 2 <MononcQc> so close. <RLim> oh should we count CCitizen <RLim> ? <seaside> you guys should come to the seaside guesthouse in Belize city to check it out and have a fun vacation. Exchange rate is roughly 1/2... <RLim> I guess he have to at least say something :) <seaside> and the beer is pretty on point google Belikin Stout <phillipsjk> seside it you don't like our platform, there are other chapters: http://pp-international.net/ <JBJblaze> Back <seaside> No you have a good drug policy. I meant I see your policy on drugs. It is important given the TPP etc. <phillipsjk> dammit, it has been almost an hour again :P <Wilson> hence the quorum ammendment: we would have been good to go at 10 after <phillipsjk> I think we need quorum to implement that though. <RLim> hey JBJblaze <RLim> pm me with your e-mail to voice. Need 3 more for quorum <JBJblaze> Ok <RLim> if we get quorum soon. What item should we try to do first <RLim> ? <phillipsjk> Try again in 1 week? <JBJblaze> Oh, so what exactly is Pirate Party for? <phillipsjk> Basically Internet freedom, which directly translates into "real" freedom as the Internet becomes ubiquitous. <Wilson> Given the situation we are in I'd go for voting on the quorum ammendment since it literally makes everything else easier to get to in the future. <dysonsphere> i second wilson's suggestion <Infovorr> I'd definitely say the quorum amendment's the biggest issue right now. <RLim> agree <JBJblaze> Ok, sent it <JBJblaze> I think <Wilson> MP freedom, fundamental freedoms, internet freedoms, free market freedoms (copyright and patent reform). So basically freedom. * RLim gives voice to JBJblaze <JBJblaze> Yay :D <RLim> 2 more <JBJblaze> Oh, may I link to this related Steam Group I've been working on? <RLim> sure <JBJblaze> Awesome <JBJblaze> TPPnt.tk <JBJblaze> http://TPPnt.tk <JBJblaze> There. <JBJblaze> Basically promotes legit and safe torrents. <RLim> cool <Wilson> k, messaged all the members I stay in contact with. <phillipsjk> Any ideas on how to proceed with th quorum thing? Can we do an all-party ballot without quorum? <JBJblaze> Do you have Steam, RLim? <dysonsphere> nice JBJblaze, just joined <Infovorr> I'd second a ballot. <Wilson> You'd have to check but I think only the GM can authorize an all-party ballot <JBJblaze> Thanks Dyson! <JBJblaze> If I can get the group more active, I'd appreciate the help! :D <seaside> If we can form a pirate party in the Caribbean, We would be the Pirates of the Caribbean- food for thought before i sign off. Thanks for the info and have a great evening. <phillipsjk> Looks like the constitution defers to the RRO for that. <RLim> good luck seaside * seaside has quit (Quit: Web client closed) <Wilson> Assuming we don't get quorum tonight we can't put off this meeting for a month; we need a closer date. When is a good date for everyone? I've still got time so I'm not going to call this meeting till I have to (but of course I defer to the Chair) <RLim> A week's time <RLim> next Wednesday? <Infovorr> Sounds good. <RLim> I'll sent out an e-mail tonight <phillipsjk> I think it good practice to call it within the hour, so the times are reasonably predictable. <chadkoh> ˜ext Wed is doable by me <phillipsjk> all the people that can't make Wednesday won't be here :) <mordecai> I have a paper to write, but I can take an hour to be here. <phillipsjk> Seeing no other suggestions, Wednesday February 26 and 8:00pm Eastern it is. <RLim> or you can idle too mordecai <RLim> after the hour <mordecai> yeah, sounds good <RLim> Just realized I kind of screwed up on the notice <mordecai> also, we should start the process of voicing maybe half an hour before the meeting if we can. <RLim> February 19 (Thursday) <MHoude> Second mordecai <RLim> so if anyone showed up tomorrow. That's that <RLim> ok <phillipsjk> That you for coming everybody. I think I am going to call the meeting. <phillipsjk> RLim: didn't notice that myself. <RLim> I'll try to be here 30 minutes before. Start bugging me at that time <CraigNobbs> ok, so the meeting is being pushed to next wednesday due to lack of quorum then? <mordecai> will do :) <Wilson> k, I will hopefully see you all next wednesday then. <mordecai> correct <dysonsphere> ok. so feb 26 at 8pm. see you then. <CraigNobbs> I'll mark it on my calendar <MHoude> Good night <Wilson> Ric, remember to send a mailout with the new date. I will get the facebook message. >#canada< meeting delayed until February 26, 8:00pm Eastern. <Wilson> (the correct new date) ;P <dysonsphere> good night, till next week. <oxpirate2> Hooray productivity!
