  1. Where can we find a list of who left and who stayed?

    According to the article in the Sunday the half dozen and handful of people walking out came from Chris Bentley and McGuinty and the Toronto Star reporter who was across the room and behind the cameras. The 80-100 figure would be reasonably accurate. Does anyone know if this is the 1st walkout at ROMA? Nextera representative was in attendance in the session. ROMA Board tried to stop the walkout.
