Bloy Oh Bloy, or How I Stopped Worrying and Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Comment Fodder

The Burnaby Newsleader reported this week on Burquitlam MLA Harry Bloy's displeasure with a politicized memo sent by a Burnaby Central teacher.

The memo asked for $15 per semester for a shop fee because the Ministry of Education was "decreasing funds." Bloy says funds to Burnaby have gone up while enrollment has declined. That should provide more funding per student.

Bloy adds, "It appears the Burnaby school district is allowing schools to solicit money from students and parents based on inaccurate and misleading information.”

School board chair Ron Burton replied with the standard fodder against Bloy, "It's political rhetoric coming out of him." Expect perhaps for Bloy asking for the district to fire the teacher, everything the Burquitlam MLA said is quite reasonable given that the teacher in question recycled an old memo that was asking for money from a year when education funding was being reduced.

Par for the course from a teacher who is a good little nazi for the BCTF. Was it just laziness or idealogical blinkers that were not turned off.

Think Harry has had too much caffeine.

Asking for the teacher to be fired is a bit much.

A stern talking to and writing

"I wont use old memos" 150 times
on the blackboard after school would be enough punishment.
