Frankly, the trustee system itself is kind of silly when you look at electoral coverage. I mean, look at the coverage our elections get - we learn about the party leaders of each provincial and federal party. Maybe a little coverage for the mayoral election.

Ward councillors, individual MPs and MPPs barely get any coverage at all in the mainstream media. Voters are not really equipped to make informed choices on those subjects, which is why our elections at the provincial and federal level have devolved into being entirely about party leaders.

With that in mind, how could you possibly expect the public to make an informed decision about school trustees? There is no media coverage, no information, nothing. Even independant, politically-savvy reporting institutions like RTH and Coleman ignored the trustees until they started destroying the city.
