The school board was set to finally pass a balanced budget tonight, because the minister made it clear it was a requirement to receive seismic upgrade funding. Before the board could pass the budget, they were all fired.Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson said he was "extremely disappointed" with the minister's decision to fire the board.
"It makes no sense when they were about to pass the budget," he said. "I believe [the elected trustees] can do the best job for our kids, and were fighting to keep our schools open."
We need to make sure our voices as parents are heard loud and clear. Please take a moment to come sign our petition.
Here is the petition so you can read it in advance and sign it in person. Thank you to everyone for their support.
