They've had something like 50 debates in Toronto's mayoral race already, an din Vancouver we've had none. So much for democracy.

Have candidates for Parks Board also been invited to participate? I may have missed an earlier article...

And what about School Board candidates? I think that many people would be interested to hear what our potential school board trustees have to say, esp after the recent public education situation! Looking forward to seeing some coverage...

Save Vancouver is right. No one's even done crack on this campaign yet. Slackers.

Kelly, school board trustee's are told to tow the political line. Smile and look the other way when directed by their handlers. A school board trustee in theory is supposed to be an advocate for parent/school issues, but in reality they are encouraged to do low level stuff like smile and spread calculated rumors on twitter. Patti is a master at twitter & looking the other way. But wow, can she party.
