And what, exactly, is Mr. Bernier's rationale for firing all the VSB trustees?
Well, according to the MoCo it is, at least in part, the following:
...(Minister Bernier) said the results of an audit — which Bernier ordered after the school board failed to submit a balanced budget by the June 30 deadline — raised additional concerns about the Vancouver School Board...
Why haven't we, the people, (or, presumably, the Trustees themselves) seen that audit?
...Bernier said the province cannot release the results of the audit until a privacy commissioner investigation is done...
Update Monday Afternoon: Was the board actually fired because they were going to pass a balanced budget tonight?...Folks in the comments make a good case that this might have been the case...Derrick O'Keefe has more in that vein, here.
