"Keen" is a mis-characterization. CAUUG was begged by AUUG to centralize
the money. The money was moved at AUUG's request, with the understanding
that the money was reserved for CAUUG purposes. AUUG's specific concern
was the tax situation, as well as other reporting requirements. AUUG
convinced CAUUG at the time that moving the money was in the best
interest of all parties.

IIRC, CAUUG had a bank account at the time of the transfer, although it
was under the sole control of an even-longer-ago treasurer, who wrote a
cheque for the then-treasurer.
