Video: Burlington School Closures and Community Consequences

With Ontario government changes to PAR guidelines, downtown schools targetted for closure

With the Ontario government changing PAR guidelines in 2015, the impact of school closure on community can no longer be considered. Downtown schools across the province – like Burlington’s Central – now targeted for closure.

I was inspired to seek public office because I believe, like so many of you, “I can do something about that” on the issues we face. As councilor, my role is to take a stand on what’s best for residents and go to bat for it. Pushback is inevitable from those who don’t have the community’s interests at heart. I will stand with you and for you, to achieve the best interests of our city, without caving to unacceptable compromise in the name of consensus.

What's your take?
