Bill 177 hearings

Another People for Education newsletter item indicates the Ontario Legislature's Standing Committee on Social Policy is set to conduct two days of hearings into Bill 177 on Oct. 26 and 27 at Queen's Park in Toronto.
I wonder how many boards, trustees or trustee/board associations will line up to speak to the committee on those two days. Based on a board meeting I was at earlier in the week, trustees there wanted to present to the committee and speak about their concerns with the bill's various regulations.
I also wonder how many of these deputations before the committee will cry foul about the proposed provincial interest regulations that stem from Bill 78, which passed in 2006.

I also know that the committees get to approves who is allowed to make deputations. You can be sure anyone who does't sing from the choirbook won't be in on it.
