Thanks for the timely suggestion, as you know we’re already working on how and when to update the charter and seeing how we can do an update expeditiously. Dom and I will discuss upon his return, adding this to the list.

Out of curiosity, why the sudden “pressure”, what has changed, since for example, two months ago?

regards, Frederick
