School trustees squabble over representation at events

Winnipeg School Division trustees Mike Babinsky and Suzanne Hrynyk are squabbling after Babinsky unleashed an email tirade this morning accusing Hrynyk of chewing out his son publicly at a school event last week.

Babinsky said the scene was payback for all the motions that he’s been bringing forward that have irritated other board members.

Hrynyk said she’ll bring her own motion in September to prevent Babinsky from sending his children to represent him at events.

Hrynyk said she told Elmwood High School staff in the presence of Babinsky’s son that she was the only elected politician present, that she should go first, and that she should bring greetings on behalf of the division.

Instead, Hrynyk said, when her name was called, Babinsky’s teenaged son beat her to the microphone and spoke first.
