Ontario Announces $498 Million For New Schools

What scandal?

Minister of Education Liz Sandals has announced $498 million in funding to build 30 new schools, renovate 26 existing ones and create 2,135 new child care spaces across Ontario.

Sandals made the announcement at Davisville Junior Public School today, which she says will get a new school building through the funding.

In Toronto, Davisville will be one of two new schools built through the funding, the other will be Cardinal Newman Catholic Secondary School. Four schools in the city, two public and two Catholic, will receive building extensions.

Here are the schools getting renovations:

– St Clement Catholic Secondary School.

– St Augustine of Canterbury Catholic Secondary School.

– Norseman Junior Middle School.

– Terry Fox Public School.

“All together that will provide improved facilities and enhanced learning opportunities for more than 1,300 local students and families will also benefit from increased access to safe high quality child care,” said Sandals this morning.

The province says those child care spaces will be built in areas where there is a significant demand. 122 new child care rooms will be built to create the 2,135 new spaces for infants, toddlers and pre-schoolers.

    “Public school enrolment in Canada is on a downward trend in almost every
    province, while an increasing number of parents are sending kids to
    private schools”

    Corruption runs rampant anywhere Premier Strap-on spews money. Methinks the teacher unions are going to benefit with new teacher hires. New blood new union dues.

    Premier Strap-on is a crook. Why is she not yet facing any criminal charges for any of her many crimes in office?

    Not sure about Toronto but the new schools in Ottawa are in more or less islamic areas of town.

    This doesn’t include funding for a public high school in Stittsville. We are by far the largest community in Ontario without a public high school (we do have a Catholic and a French Catholic is being built now). Oh did I mention…we elect PC’s provincially and federally…but I am sure that has nothing to do with it (/sarc off)
