I agree. This emergency meeting could have been easily kept under lid. BCB's initial response was a good thing, but now they should just keep it quiet until end of BD's WC campaign.
Also, I strongly believe that they should not renew his contract. I would not have said this but for this latest snafu by Whatmore. He did it once before. But repeat of the same situation in a even more sensitive context (WC) just makes it real bitter.
