‘Our schools are already suffering; our kids are already suffering due to a lack of resources due to crumbling infrastructure and a lack of support in the system,’ says bargaining unit president.

Before the provincial government releases its 2019 budget, teachers and their supporters rallied in front of MPP Doug Downey’s office Thursday afternoon to show their disapproval of any cuts to education that may be coming.

Approximately 30 people held signs and flags in front of Downey’s Bell Farm Road constituency office despite the Barrie-Springwater-Oro-Medonte representative not being on site.

The rally had been planned for several weeks, but kept being postponed due to bad weather.
