In 2012 at the Ottawa Biennial Convention, the Ontario PTA proposed a policy on Democratic Renewal within the party. This proposal was subsequently given number 18 and was listed among the policies Policy-resolutions-2012-Ottawa-en for debate. You will find Proposal number 18 on page 29 of the resolutions.
Policy number 18 was subsequently discussed and debated and based on the information I have, was passed by a vote of 2,640 (80%) of the voting delegates. It was listed among the successful Policy Resolutions 2012 Policy-Results for the Ottawa Biennial.
The truly unfortunate part, is that if any component of the party; the NBOD, a Commission, the CoP, even a PTA had picked up the ball, respected the wishes of the membership and created the “Renewal Commission” which the membership requested, today we would not be in the position that the party finds itself.
