Toronto trustees running amok, former chair says (with a straight face)

Former Toronto District School Board chair Chris Bolton says some trustees are
running afoul of spending policies and the province should step in to get the
board under control until October's municipal election.
A handful of Toronto public school trustees are running afoul of spending policies and other board procedures and the province needs to step in, says the former chair of Canada’s largest school board.

Posting on Facebook, Chris Bolton said since he resigned suddenly from the board mid-June “it seems to have been drifting into areas that not just election silliness, but downright interference. Staff seem to be spending more time catering to the trustee whims of a few than the work of the board.”

He accuses unnamed trustees of “dictating expense policies against the direction of the board and province.”
