I'm not going to worry about the discussions until after they're over because they're too far out in left field for me to have any impression of how they might go. If I had to pick one person from the group to exclude from the meetings, it wouldn't be Toews, it would be Jeremy Jacobs.
fully agree with you, i feel that he shouldn't be part of this negotiation but he has way to much clout and will be.
