Just a quick post to indicate the transcripts from the Ontario Legislature's standing committee on social policy's two days of hearings on Bill 177 are up on the legislature's website. I had wanted to wait a few days after the Oct. 26 and 27 meeting dates because usually it takes a few days for the committee staff to post the Hansard transcripts of the hearings at the committee level.
Looking quickly at those who spoke, it drew the expected crowd of trustees' association, trustees, parents' groups and other interested parties.
The Oct. 26 transcript is here— HTML or PDF, with the Oct. 27 transcript here— HTML or PDF.
I have not had time to read through the transcripts, but did note the committee will do clause-by-clause examination of Bill 177 on Nov. 16. A few days afterward I will again post a couple hundred words with a link to the transcript.
