We Made History Today

There were hours of postponements, lunch breaks and recounting votes for the Chair thanks to Charlie Webster who wouldn't give the stage over to Brent Tweed (RP) after he had won by 4 votes. It was excruciating, and many thought that the RP supporters should have started chanting, or should have stormed the stage. But everyone simply sat through it patiently and confidently. Then, just before 3PM -- repeat, 3PM !!! -- Webster relinquished the Chair to Tweed, and we have been off and running ever since. We won on so many levels by not losing our cool. It was a monumental event, a historic moment.
