Public education rally tomorrow
View this email in your browser
Hi -

Last Monday, the provincial government committed a shameful act that clearly put the interests of our students last.

Hours before Vancouver School Board Trustees were set to pass a balanced budget – Education Minister Mike Bernier fired them for failing to pass a balanced budget last June.
Now more than ever, it is important for all of us to come together to let the provincial government know that what they did is unacceptable.  That the chronic underfunding of public education is unacceptable.  And that closing any of our schools is unacceptable. 
Opposition Leader John Horgan, my colleagues and myself believe that stable and adequate funding for public education is needed.

Please join me at a rally tomorrow to support our fired VSB trustees who are advocating for public education. 

Rally to support our trustees
Thur Oct 20th
VSB front lawn
1580 W. Broadway (at Fir)

The consultations are open to the public, and I encourage you to attend if you have the opportunity.
