Keep our President!
On Monday August 1st, 2016 members of Boxing Ontario were informed that there was to be an "emergency" meeting called by Directors Deborah Wong, Olga Heron, & Sean Yacoub for Wednesday August 3rd 2016 with the only agenda item being the removal of current President Mike Power.
Though our constitution allows for this type of special resolution, we are gravely concerned about the secretive methods and lack of proof that would result in a 2/3 majority of directors passing this motion. As members of Boxing Ontario we are not in support of this special resolution nor will we respect it's outcome.
Removal of our President (a President we elected) without our knowledge and without being provided any reasons or evidence is incredibly disturbing and we demand that those who have come forward with these accusations (Deb Wong, Olga Heron, and Sean Yacoub) submit irrefutable evidence or step down from their positions immediately.
- We are asking for an email outlining in detail the current issues from both sides informing all boxing clubs of the current situation.
- We would like the accusations clearly stated and each one supported by physical evidence that proves the accusations to be true and what intermediate actions where taken to address these concerns along the way.
- We also would like to know what other options were explored aside from removal
We are 100% against any "emergency" meeting being called and 100% against any change in our leadership without being consulted and advised of the issues at hand. Please note that conducting the above planned meeting and removing Mike Power from the presidency will jeopardize the population and trust of your members and you will risk losing us.
Don't let politics take your organization away from you. As members we should have a say in what happens!!
