Default syllabus question

The Odomirok section on Canada is on the syllabus? I keep hoping I missed the note where it says it's excluded...

I personally emailed the CAS last Fall about this, materials were changed to explicitly reflect that the Canadian material was excluded from 6U.

This sitting, apparently, this change did not carry over with the pdf version of the syllabus, but the CAS web page with the links to the online material (including Odomirok) still reflected this change. Another poster emailed the CAS with a copy of the pdf I downloaded last sitting (reflecting the change); the pdf copy was soon changed to reflect the fact that Exam 6U does not include the Canadian portions of the text.
