The BC College of Teachers is once again governed more-or-less democratically. In May 2003, Bill 51 usurped teachers' control over their own professional body — by reserving 11 of 20 governing council seats for political appointees. But public backlash forced BC to scale that back to eight appointed seats. Finally, last week, 12 union-endorsed candidates swept council elections in a record turnout.
