I have been alerted by a very prominent author & child advocate to a loophole that dirty BC bureaucrats have written into the Teachers Act to insulate cronies from possible later investigation if it can be proven the TRB was negligent in not investigating the first go around. If, as in this case the commissioner of the TRB stalls long enough, the offending principal or superintendent can be quietly retired and protected from any further investigation. Once an accused offender is pulled from the system, they are instantly insulated forever. Interesting fact is that Maureen Ciarniello was quietly retired from the VSB which is under the TRB's responsibility to investigate but still is a active working executive director of ERAC (Feb2018) which is outside the TRB's scope to investigate. Are BC children safe as a result of dirty/sneaky BC bureaucrats & non investigations.... Another key point is Bruce Preston is a lawyer and obviously trying to excuse Ciarniello from investigation in this letter. This case involves misuse of law by Ciarniello( a massive Constitutional Canadian Charter violation!), intimidation causing harm & much much worse. But as any crafty litigator working for a client (when they should be protecting parents & children) Bruce Preston does his best to finish the letter by dwelling on fact Ciarniello laughed in a email. Yes, Ciarniello did laugh openly and life seems a big joke down at the Vancouver School Board, but this was a very small point that Preston made into a key piece of the puzzle as a way to minimize the seriousness of VSB superintendent Maureen Ciarniello's very very serious conduct. Disgusting antics by our BC Government. Peace & awareness.
