"I don't believe ther is any requirement to consolidate staffing and maintenance, that was more of a "wish" than a requirement."

While I appreciate your sentiment, this points up what most concerns me about this situation. Not the 'dispicable behaviour' of the Board, resulting in at least two facebook pages to get the trustees from Wards 1, 2 and 3 'ousted', nor the inferences drawn from taking the headquarters out of the downtown. But the disconnect from that old gem from the late Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan of the US:

"You're entitled to your own opinion. But you're not entitled to your own facts."

It's a shame that hectoring takes the place of sound examination when something like this (what is labeled as an egregious transgression, a certifiable crime) unfolds.

I hope that at some point we find a teeny-tiny space to get past the 'Us vs Them' loop and find some facts we can actually agree on.

(As for the 'wish': I guess if you're going to see things that way, then you could label everything the Board has set out to do this way. My impression all along as been that they -as many Boards across the province have been doing in order to fulful their feduciary responsibilities to their 'bosses', the Ministry of Edcuation- have intended to consolidate both staffing and maintenance in one facility. So again, 'More facts, please.')
