Champlain’s meeting goes overtime
Last Wednesday, Champlain College’s meeting went overtime and got heated more than once as the question of the independence of the three campuses came again to the table under various guises. Some were less obvious than others, and teachers representatives tried their best to have every article on the agenda refer to the crisis.
The situation is exacerbated by the fact that six positions on the board are not filled, forcing chairman Michael Murray to remain in a job that he wants to relinquish for at least another meeting. There was a motion to replace him, a replacement even proposed and for all intents elected, but the problem of having a vice-chair rendered the whole proceeding moot.
The saga will continue at next month’s meeting.
Kenneth Robertson, the director general, and Chaiman Michael Murray.
