OECTA President James Ryan, in the letter, dated September 10th and addressed to Richards agent, Mr. Bob Boyle, explains:
RE: Stay of Discipline Board Decision
I want to begin by thanking you for your correspondence dated September 2, 2013. Your request was thoroughly examined by the Provincial Executive, on Monday September 9, 2013, with the assistance of legal counsel.
In response to your request the Handbook does not provide authority to the Provincial Executive to affect the decision of the Discipline Panel ["the Panel"] as requested. As such, the Provincial Executive cannot grant your request for a stay of the Panel's decision.
The letter was sent via email and regular mail.
