Jeff alone owns and controls the domain.

Dear Jeff,

Please either re-direct to the actual FOSS4G 2020 event, or at least 
take down or clarify the content.

It is very confusing because the website does not even clearly state 
that this was a proposal / bid.

This is quite embarrassing for everyone from the LOC listed on the TEAM 
HFX link, especially Karine, myself and Thierry who are featured 
prominently there with pictures and all.

Thank you.

All the best,
