Melanie delivers approx. 3,000 petitions to the VSB

Thank you to the Vancouver school board for allowing me to present these petitions tonight on behalf of my constituents in Vancouver-Mt Pleasant, and thank you to all the community members that have rallied together to support our schools.

Sept 21 - Melanie delivers petitions to the VSB in support of their call for increased funding for education.

Sept 21 – Melanie delivers petitions to the VSB in support of their call for increased funding for education, while calling on them to Save Vancouver-Mount Pleasant schools.

Nearly 3000 signatures were collected over the last month in support of our community schools, Queen Alexandra, Admiral Seymour, Britannia and Gladstone. I appreciate that the VSB has some very hard decisions to make with the limited provincial funding they receive, and ask that they take these petitions into consideration while deliberating.

I look forward to seeing you all out on Monday the 26th at Tupper Secondary, 7pm, for the next VSB meeting regarding potential school closures.
