Ultimatum for Halifax School Board
Meanwhile, it appears the childish simpering continues from a vocal (and periodically absent) minority that walked out after losing a vote last meeting. Gin Yee, who I voted for, maintains that walking out is
one of the few ways a minority group of board members can say something and it has worked somewhat...to which I am forced to reply, "GROW UP!" Perhaps, next municiple election my vote might "walk out", too. If everyone reacted this way a democracy in any real sense would be entirely impossible. Things like this are what make people afraid of proportional representation, I fear. As for its efficacity, if you mean, "this has managed to make us look like a whinging bunch of fools nationally", then yes, it has worked remarkably well.
He goes on, capping it off with the pre-pubescent argument (I shit you not):
...we weren't the first group of people doing it.I wish I was making this up. I really, really do.
