Swipe deflects attention

Re: NDP candidate wastes no time in taking Liberal swipe, (May 22)

Alex Johnstone’s “swipe” at MPP Ted McMeekin is a transparent attempt to deflect attention from the lack of leadership she’s shown as a public school board trustee.

Johnstone voted to close more than a dozen elementary and secondary schools, including Prince Philip elementary in Ainslie Wood.  She has lost the confidence of her constituents by brushing aside their concerns and voting with a block of trustees who would sooner rip apart communities than challenge the Liberal government’s austerity agenda.

To add insult to injury, Johnstone brought forward a motion to delay the next round of accommodation reviews until after she faces the voters in the 2014 municipal election.
