Paul LAURENDEAU asks,

> WHEN DO WE START THAT DEBATE ON GOVERNANCE OR WHATEVER ELSE?

We don't need a ribbon-cutting ceremony to kick off the formal start of
the "debate". We can start anytime someone has something to say.
What shall it be first? New procedures for selecting deans and associate
deans? A requirement that deans teach a course a year (as happens in Science,
I believe)? A discussion of salaries of deans and former deans?
Constitutions for departments and units in the faculty?
Or something more substantial?

By the way, I sometimes feel as if I am suffering from double vision, seeing
many things appear simultaneously on ARTSFAC-L and YUFA-L. So it was
interesting to see, when I last checked, that about half of the people
on ARTSFAC-L are not on YUFA-L.
