While it is true that the CITEL position is officially to support the elimination of the leap second, it is wrong to assume, as the article implies, that all countries in the group share that position. I understand only 6 countries signed onto the CITEL position.

CITEL is against the leap second, and Canada is part of CITEL.
So that's different than CEPT where UK and Russia prevented a
regional position from being reached.
