Red River College Communication Specialist, Colin Fast, is a candidate in the by-election for school trustee in the Winnipeg School Division, Ward 1.
Colin is running on an interesting platform: that school trustees should have their right to tax taken away. You can check out his blog on the topic right here.
When I worked at Rumors, I often told a joke about how it's unfair that people like me, who have no kids, have to pay education taxes to pay for other people's kids to go to school.

The election will be held on March 17.
