LBPSB guilty commissioner must resign
The school taxpayers of the Lester B. Pearson School Board (LBPSB) have every right to be updated about issues that deal with the operation of their school board and related ethics rulings.
One commissioner has been found guilty on not one but three ethics’ violations. It is time for this this guilty individual to do the honourable thing and resign from her position and stop holding the rest of the council members hostage for selfish reasons. Unofficially, everyone knows who the guilty individual is, yet she continues to play a game of hide and seek behind pseudo argumentation.
The verdict by the ethics commissioner is unequivocally clear. Guilty on all three charges!
As a school taxpayer, I am demanding that the guilty individual resigns.
If she refuses to resign, I expect the other LBPSB commissioners to do the right thing in addressing this unacceptable situation. If they do not have the courage to stand up publicly to denounce this guilty commissioner's action then their option is to ensure that there is no quorum for the pending upcoming meetings.
This individual has to resign for the good of the school board and more importantly for the welfare of our students’ education.
