Transparency? Who needs that?

Word out of the Toronto Catholic School Board today is that the majority of trustees think transparency is unimportant. Trustees voted down posting their expenses online which was proposed in an attempt to avoid misconceptions that they are abusing their access to the public purse.

Do these trustees have a grip on reality? Do they not see the skepticism in public officials these days?

Kudos to John Del Grande and Oliver Carroll the two trustees who have opened a newspaper recently and realized the importance of transparency and accountability: They are posting their expenses online despite their colleague’s oversight.
