School board trustee: the forgotten vote "It's totally true. I'm running for School Board Trustee and yesterday I received an email from another candidate and I stopped and went, "wait, who?" I think it goes without saying that as a candidate I have been paying attention to the race! Weird"

Appalled at uncalled for election behavior
In reference to Bob Vrbanac’s column on Nov. 7, I could not have said it better myself and I would like Mayor Carl Zehr and all City of Kitchener councillors to know how I feel.
School trustees should be part of provincial vote
It is my opinion that school trustees could be elected during provincial elections.
Can’t believe shenanigans of municipal election
Bob Vrbanac had an excellent “Viewpoint” in the Kitchener Post on Nov. 7. His thoughts represent many City of Kitchener residents’ thoughts.
Canadians need a negotiated health accord
All Canadians should be extremely concerned about the future of health care in our country.
Government should act to protect our soldiers
I have to wonder as events unfolded in Quebec and in Ottawa, why it seems to be business as usual when we know it won’t be.
Not too late to question the need for LRT
It’s not too late to seriously question the LRT. We need a new regional chair and councillors who have open, business-like minds.
Looking forward to using bike lanes on Manitou
Re: Manitou segregated bike lanes cause strife at regional council; Sept. 19
Vote for vision, not resentment and anger
Since 2010, Toronto has learned the hard way that voting for a candidate that represented resentment and anger instead of competency and vision leads to disaster.
Need to close the loophole on tendering
I wanted follow up with you in the wake of the developments and decisions by the Ontario Labour Board deeming the region a “construction employer,” validating the certification by the Carpenters Union and ensuring closed tendering for local infrastructure.
Politicians should walk the walk on transparency
There is nothing wrong with public school board trustee John Hendry calling on trustee candidates to admit any known conflicts they could face if they are elected on Oct. 27.
Doon residents still without safe bike access
Councillors recently passed a vote to put in segregated bike lanes on Manitou Drive.
Candidates should declare known conflicts
Waterloo Region District School Board incumbent John Hendry has challenged all trustee candidates to state publicly, ahead of the Oct. 27 election, whether they have a close relative associated with the board, as this may prevent them from participating in future debate and voting on some issues.
Harper’s climate boycott is embarrassing
Why is Harper not attending the international climate conference? Every embarrassed Canadian is asking this question.
Trails need maintenance, not upgrades
Before the city considers $1.5 million for trail upgrades (e.g. entrances and crossings), I propose the city consider an effective trail maintenance program — the simple stuff — pruning and cutting the brush and overgrowth, adding more aggregate where washouts have occurred and other such basic maintenance activities.
Don’t legislate diet choices
The assumption had been that people do not consume high-quality diets because they did not have adequate access to healthy foods. However, “the results of this study suggests that exposure to [a saturation] of unhealthy food [options, rather than a lack of healthy ones,] and beverages in people’s neighbourhoods through convenience stores and fast food outlets is associated with poor diet quality.”
Politicians using a false dichotomy with LRT
At the recent ground breaking for the region’s light rail transit (LRT) project, once again the comparison between LRT and the building of the Conestoga Parkway was used as a justification for the project.
