TDSB hold tense, at times awkward, final meeting of term

Trustee Sam Sotiropulous
The Toronto public school board gathered for its final meeting of the term Wednesday night and while some official business was handled, the night was overshadowed by ongoing scandals and personal infighting between trustees.

Polemic trustee Sam Sotiropulous gave perhaps the night's most controversial statement as he used his final few minutes with the board to joke about a tell-all book he's "currently writing" about the internal dysfunction that has come to define the past several years at the board.

"God made idiots. That was for practice," he said. "Then he made school boards."

About half of the other trustees refused to clap for Sotiropulous, while one even turned his back to the Ward 20 Scarborough-Agincourt trustee in protest.  (more...)
