Perhaps the NDT should accede to a democratic vote. My point is that if the Mahoney/Hanson proposal is advanced in its current form at the CEDA business meeting then whomever advances it should also show up at the NDT meetingd an advance a proposal to change the NDT rule that says the NDT will only debate the CEDA topic IF CEDA chooses a policy topic. It would certainly prevent the NDT meeting from being a dull one.
I think that is a superior alternative to forcing the NDT to either ignore its own rule or triggering a forced split. I don't think that's what Mahoney/Hanson had in mind, so I pointed it out.
If changing the NDT rule has no popular support, then there is probably not much of a chance of a non-policy resolution winning anyhow.
