Recently fired Vancouver School Board member and former chair, Patti Bacchus, has a new job this week after joining the ultra-progressive Vancouver Observer where she will be writing about public education.
Bacchus has written for them before, although not since 2010, and nobody should be surprised that this is where this former Vision Vancouver Trustee ended up since it’s long been considered nothing more than a mouthpiece for Vision Vancouver.
In an article published on Monday, Bacchus writes a letter to Diane Turner, the former Delta, BC school trustee appointed by the province to manage the Vancouver School Board after the trustees were dismissed.
Watch as I share the details of her strange “letter” and what I found out about her taxpayer funded expenses that raises some questions.
Its worth noting that Bacchus filed a privacy complaint with the forensic auditor assigned to look into the budget deficiencies at the school board before the dismissal by the province.
Bacchus insists the privacy complaint was to protect children, their parents and school board employees, but could it be that there is something else Bacchus is hiding?
Between her privacy complaint and the $20,000 roadblock the board tried to throw at us during an FOI request into the toxic workplace allegations, I’m left with more questions than answers, but we'll keep digging.
