Mayor Lord Mayor Dave Eke tells CKTB news, his problem is not with the board but with Trustee Fast
Eke says it would appear he hasn't considered the ramifications of his proposal or discussed it with town council.
Kevin Maves, Chair of the DSBN Board of Trustees, says that proposal suggested by Fast, “Has never been raised or discussed with the DSBN Board of Trustees or senior administration. The proposal does not reflect the official position of the DSBN. The responsibility of trustees is to support the education of students.”
