The word just in -Vancouver Secondary Teachers union endorses the full COPE slate plus three Vision Candidates (going by COPE school board candidate Bill Bargeman’s facebook page two of those three Visionistas are long time parent activist Patti Bacchus and retired teacher and BCTF staffer, Mike Lombardi. One wonders whether the teachers went with daycare/childcare activist and gun advocate S.Gregson, or First Nations community activist Ken Clement.
From COPE candidate Bill Bargeman’s facebook profile (dated Friday, September 26, 2008)
is thanking the VSTA Council for recommending the VSTA endorse me, Al Blakey, Jane Bouey, Allan Wong, Patti Bacchus and Mike Lombardi for School Board
This would suggest that VSTA is not endorsing Sharron Gregson or Ken Clement.
