The stories from around the 905 this week, including Joel’s suggestion for reaching the final 20% of unvaccinated Ontarians, the latest development in the Haldimand Tract land dispute, and the physical and reputational damage done at the unofficial and unauthorized homecoming at McMaster University in Hamilton last weekend.
Following our Tuesday episode with Halton Catholic School Board Chair Patrick Murphy, we speak with Lauren Wallis of Halton Parents for Change (https://haltonparentsforchange.ca/, @HaltonPFC).
Lauren gives her perspective on Chair Murphy‘s account of recent dysfunction at HCDSB and the Pride flag debate, and what needs to be done make the board function effectively.
In June, Halton Catholic District School Board took the unusual step of ordering an investigation into its own dysfunctional behaviour, including the board‘s discussion of the Pride flag, which brought international attention to the board‘s division. Board Chair Patrick Murphy discusses the report and what can be done to improve trustee behaviour in an in-depth interview.
