I say we cheer on our allies but send a representative to the table with Brookfield.  Once we arrive at a deal, then we cheer Brookfield if they sent a negotiator in good faith and their idea of "negotiations" isn't Benjamin Netanyahu's "Accept all our demands without concession then we'll talk" strategy.

It could be private.  Anything we can do to "better relations" without hurting public image.

Propose it to the general assembly, but my gut feeling is we dont need to publicly thank Brookfield for so *graciously* allowing us to be in the public park they "own/operate".
