Laws Belong In The Public Domain
More often than we might imagine, the laws that govern us are not available for the public, journalists, or researchers to access for free.
Laws that are not in the public domain are directly opposed to any good faith effort to establish political accountability. That’s why I believe we must post all of Abbotsford’s 46 school Parent Advisory Council (PAC) Constitutions online to prevent tampering. Abbotsford parents could re-type any PAC Constitution simply to double the term of their own political office. We need to guard our constitutions.
Any Abbotsford PAC Constitution that calls for appointments rather than elections, or a minimum of 1 in-person meeting per year would also appear to violate multiple layers of laws, including our own Abbotsford District Parent Advisory Council (DPAC) Constitution and Code of Ethics, the School Act, and the Charter. Naturally, this accountability comment applies in spades to all British Columbia’s family laws.
