"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

A Snippet

The Chairman of the Toronto District School Board has  resigned.

He says it's time to examine other options.

The term of office ends on November 30th.

He was a school  principal in the system for thirty years.

He Has has been a board trustee for the last ten.

He is being investigated as head of a Toronto -based charity. There's no shortage of them about.

He says that's not the reason he has resigned.

Of course it isn't the reason he resigned. Usually the claim is that the individual needs to spend more time with his/her family ". Which is later followed by a divorce.
I am still puzzled about the felony conviction of the Mayor of London over $1700. By the look of the guy he spends that kind of money on his ward-robe. It makes no sense.

Ontarians are used to spending beyond their means and legitimizing their entitlements.
There are so many that are at the public trough. And there will be so many more as of last Thursday.
This chairman is not even a blip on the screen.

Would that be the man hired to replace the fellow who resigned after being caught for plagiarism ?
