Membership suspension issue...defeated

Speakers all seem to be against the proposed ability to suspend and revoke.

Could be a Charter challenge to freedom of association rights...

Another speaker, with whom I absolutely agree, says "conduct detrimental to the party" is too broad. Grounds are not provided, how does a person respond...that's right, there's no due process here.

Now someone saying it's better than what exists now...ok, but...

HR professional up investigation component to it, same procedural fairness point raised.

Main vote on motion: this is going to be close...maybe not, the "NO's" have it! Proposal defeated.
