Canadian Soccer Association board member Amelia Salehabadi-Fouques will submit a motion that the organization pull out of FIFA and CONCACAF.
In a statement made public on her website (CLICK HERE), the Quebec board member pledges to make a motion at Saturday’s CSA board meeting that would initiate a temporary separation between the CSA and FIFA. Of course, her motion calls for the separation to come only after the completion of the Women’s World Cup. The board meeting will be held in Edmonton, where the WWC opener is being held on the same day.
The first three points of her motion (translated from French):
1. FIFA: suspend CSA membership at the end of the World Cup of Women Canada until the time that full light and TOTAL cleaning are done in this organization.
2. CONCACAF: suspend CSA membership at the end of the World Cup of Women Canada, the time that light and cleaning are done in this organization.
3. Direct consequence of 1 and 2: the President of the CSA Board of Directors and all other persons (employees, officers, consultants, board of directors, etc.) of the CSA to immediately withdraw from setting on any committees of FIFA and/or CONCACAF especially as CSA is very busy with the World Cup for women in Canada and the establishment of even better practices in governance and transparency within our own association.
