What started as a conversation about masking mandates in school settings, and whether or not to reinstate mandatory measures, resulted in police being called to an unruly event. The Ottawa-Carleton District School Board says no decisions were reached, but further discussions are expected Thursday. Local epidemiologist Dr. Raywat Deonandan had a virtual seat at Tuesday’s meeting. He describes the ‘unacceptable’ and embarrassing behaviour he witnessed on today’s Ottawa Now.
