The only 'tool' in Minister Broten's arsenal to prevent further upheaval and chaos in Ontario education is the immediate repeal of Bill 115 … Article 20 “Repeal of Act - This Act is repealed.” www.ontla.on.ca/web/bills/bills_detail.do?BillID=2665 Use it!

Minister Broten and the OLP are certainly coming under some significant heat from Conservative education critic Lisa MacLeod with her suggestion that the Liberal ranks could be now divided over Bill 115. Political careers will be flushed over this legislation if OLP MPP’s stand their ground on this mean-spirited legislation in the next - very soon coming - election. What we will be seeing soon alongside the School Boards demanding the repeal of Bill 115 are MPP’s breaking rank to try to avoid the inevitable backlash in a bid for self-preservation. It will be a mistake of catastrophic proportions when Broten brings out her chainsaw and hammer.

This article received 640 hits and was retweeted close to 30 times in a very short period of time last evening. In the labyrinth of Twitter this just represents a fraction of the exposure this crucial idea of cooperation between teachers and Boards will receive as this conversation continues today in staff rooms and board offices across Ontario. As well, OTN is being ‘watched’ on the global stage from over 100 places worldwide.

There is growing consensus by Boards and Trustees that Minister Broten must repeal Bill 115 as they will not want to witness the destruction of good-working relationships built over the years with their education workers because of a power hungry Minister Broten who has “now lost complete touch with reality” (Sam Hammond ETFO President).

To quote the now resigned Premier Dalton McGuinty from somewhere in his own disgraced prorogued hiding place: “One of the most important assets we have in public education is the goodwill of teachers. If we lose that, we are in serious trouble…"

Boards and teachers/education workers have traditionally bargained in good faith for new contracts without the interference of the Minister of Education “putting her nose where is does not belong” as OSSTF Vice-President Harvey Bisch recently commented of the failed deal between of Ottawa-Carlton DSB where Laurel Broten allegedly tampered with the wording of their tentative contract. www.ottawacitizen.com/business/Update+Ed...y.html#ixzz2E3FivslG

Broten “flatly” denied any interference in the bargaining process, but it is truly impossible to believe anything she says anymore. Perhaps this is an exercise in semantics and what she really meant was: “I, Laurel Broten did not personally hold the pen which made the changes to the wording – my ministry staffers, under my direction did actually change the words –but I did not actually ‘write’ them myself.”
