A rally to protest education cuts takes place tomorrow in Bracebridge.
Locally members of the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation, the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario and the Canadian Union of Public Employees will be picketing outside Parry Sound-Muskoka MPP Norm Miller’s Bracebridge office.
A press release last week announcing the action from OSSTF President Colin Matthew notes the discussion on class sizes and that local reductions will mean a cut to frontline services.
Matthew is citing Doug Ford’s campaign promise of cutting 4 per cent from the Ontario budget for the potential education budget cuts. Cuts of those sizes could mean potential reductions of $1 billion provincially and $8 million to the Trillium Lakeland District School Board.
The rally will take place tomorrow at Norm Miller’s office located at 165 Manitoba St #1, Bracebridge starting at 4:15pm.
