    I have made a strong determination last year...

    On behalf of all of you, I have made a strong determination last year at the Hokkeko General Meeting, and we must not treat this determination with negligence. I would like to read this determination once again.

    1. Shouldn't it be made instead? I wonder because of 'last year'.
    2. Is a strong determination correct? I am not sure because 'determination' is an uncountable noun.

    Thanks.

    1. Shouldn't it be made instead? I wonder because of 'last year'. Yes, it should;
    2. Is a strong determination correct? I am not sure because 'determination' is an uncountable noun. It's not correct, also it's an odd use of the word "determination".
