It is evident that in the schools themselves there is relative calm as the business of learning continues as usual. School Administrators are supporting the learning environment because they know that at the end of this nightmare, we will all have to work together. We also all know that there will be an election and the politicians who have participated in this denigration of democracy represented by Bill 115 will be gone.

The Rainbow District School Board's vice-chair Dena Morrison reported to the Sudbury Star (Nov. 29, 2012) that Bill 115 limits collective bargaining for unionized employees, undermines labour law, and complicates matters at the board level by imposing conditions on the employer [School Boards] ... “that [Boards] weren't at the table to even agree to," Morrison said. "Some (provisions) will make the operations of our schools somewhat challenging … and the resulting job action from unionized employees at the board has put a greater strain on all staff.”

“According to Morrison, more than half of Ontario's English public school boards have already written to the ministry to either repeal Bill 115 or rescind some of its regulations. Trustees with the Rainbow District School Board voted five to one in favour of sending the letter.”

Well Laurel, According to RDSB's vice chair, more than half of ON Eng Boards have already written to ask you to repeal Bill 115. Why is this news not making headlines in newpapers or on The National? Hmmm...The OPL does have a penchant for "secrets" so that probably would explain the lack of transparency here.

“Flatly denying” that you don’t know where Dena Morrison got her information just won’t cut it.

Why aren’t you listening to Ontario?

How can Broten “flatly deny” that she did not interfere with the OCDSB osstf deal when the Ottawa Board Chair Jennifer MacKenzie has gone on record that the MOE did have “a hand in changing the language in a new teachers’ deal” and that “the deal changed between when it was submitted by the board and approved by the ministry”? metronews.ca/news/ottawa/463528/board-sa...ut-extracurriculars/

But let’s call a spade a spade here. If Broten really did not know what went out of her office with her rubber stamp on it, this demonstrates complete lack of responsibility and she must be held accountable. Broten should resign. If Broten did know that there were changes made and she lied about it, then this demonstrates complete lack of integrity and she should be held accountable. And she should resign.

Either way, Laurel Broten’s options are resigning.
