Jean-Robert because proxies are enshrined in the companies act and the act explicitly states that they cannot be removed irrespective of what a company’s bylaws / constitution says.

See fifth schedule section 6

Talking about Board Members election (1) and (2), why do we want to keep Proxies While we have Electronic voting ?

Proxies make sens when a member cannot attend the meeting in person, isn't what we wanted to solve with electronic voting?

The only time the Proxy Restrictions are enforced is for the Board

elections. Traditionally, the elections for the PDP Co-Chair is hands at

the meeting and the elections for the ASO-AC is by secret ballot by

those present.

Proxy restrictions apply to elections by the Members (Resource Members and Registered Members).  ASO-AC and PDWG elections are by the community or by the PDWG, not by the Members. Board elections and now Governance Committee elections are by the Members.
