I support Richard Klagsbrun for school trustee in Ward 10, Trinity-spadina

Richard Klagsbrun
The Toronto School Board has a well-deserved reputation as the most dysfunctional school board in Canada.

The Board faces a huge crisis of declining enrollment and empty schools – which it does nothing about.

While unable to provide decent facilities for our kids, the Board wastes huge sums of money. For a glimpse of how awful financial controls are at the Board, start here.

And while it’s utterly incompetent when it comes to the basics, the Board spends time promoting far left politics and sees no problem with indoctrinating our kids. {For more on this, see here, here, here … for starters.}

With elections for School Board Trustees coming up in a couple weeks, we have a chance to do something about this dismal state of affairs. In Ward 10, Richard Klagsbrun is running for school trustee on a campaign of better financial management and less political indoctrination.

Moreover, as the man behind the well-known blog, Eye on a Crazy Planet, Richard has the track record to prove his long-standing interest in the issues. He has my support. Check out Richard's campaign website here.

What’s more, Richard’s main opponent in the election is Ausma Malik a woman best known for her sympathy for terrorists. No I’m not kidding. Read more here.

Unfortunately, Malik is a strong contender. The unions believe they’ll always have her vote so they’re supporting her (see here) and she’s received endorsements from the downtown NDP establishment, including mayoral candidate Olivia Chow. I trust Chow simply didn’t bother to check Ausuma’s background before endorsing her, but now that it’s come out, I can’t help noticing that Chow is sticking by her support for this terrorist sympathizer.

Ah well, after starting as the front runner, Chow is now in third place, well behind Doug Ford in the polls and so far behind John Tory that media should start classifying her as one of the many fringe candidates. Indeed, now that she's supporting Malik, maybe Chow will actually end up with a vote count that has to be tallied with negative numbers.
