Bluewater District School Board to Contact Local MPPs

Grey Bruce | by John Divinski  

BWDSB wants to invite local MPP's Lisa Thompson and Bill Walker to a meeting.

The Bluewater District School Board Vice-Chair says it's time to bring the region's MPP's, up on the carpet.

Hot on the heels of the student protests against the loss of teaching positions and the reaction of Director of Education Alana Murray on the issue as heard on Bayshore Broadcasting, Thomson says the issue of losing teachers and increasing class size is obvious.

Now it's time Huron Bruce MPP Lisa Thompson--no relation--and Bruce Grey Owen Sound MPP Bill Walker come to a board meeting to hear what trustees have to say.

During a Committee of the Whole meeting on April 9th in Chesley, Thomson says the MPP's need to know how much of an impact the proposed changes to the face of education will have in rural communities.

We told you earlier this week that Alana Murray believes 40-50 teaching positions could be cut over a four year period.

Thomson got the unanimous support of fellow trustees to send a letter to the MPP's inviting them to a future board meeting.
