Q. Understanding that you are speaking from your personal perspective and not as the voice of the board, how did you feel about the decision to prematurely sun set the joint task force that was to assess the possibility of a downtown location for the board’s new headquarters? Was it a difficult decision and do you believe the right decision was made. Please explain.
I feel disappointment as its always been my preference fo the new Headquarters to remain in the downtown core. I would therefore have preferred that we honour the board motion that extended the timeline to Jun 18th thus allowing for full exploration of costs and schedule for comparison to the business case approved by the Ministry of Education
The decision was difficult as evidenced by a 6-5 vote on a motion put forward to withdraw from the Task Force.
