LATEST ON VIRGINIA PARK ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CONSTRUCTION




HANSARD
March 20th

QUESTION PERIOD 
 
MS MICHAEL: Thank you very much, Mr. Speaker. 

Parents, students, and staff of the Virginia Park Elementary School continue to wait for word on when the construction of their new facility will begin, with my support, Mr. Speaker. They will have heard in the news that the Minister of Education has directed the Eastern School Board to cut $5.5 million from its budget and that most of that will come from capital expenditures. 

I ask the Minister of Education, Mr. Speaker, if he will commit today that the money to construct the new Virginia Park school will be in this year’s Budget. 

MR. SPEAKER: The hon. the Minister of Education.


SOME HON. MEMBERS: Hear, hear!

MR. JACKMAN: Mr. Speaker, she is going to have to stay tuned as to what is going to appear in the Budget. I would suggest that she leave her spin at home and stick to the facts as she would know it. 

SOME HON. MEMBERS: Hear, hear!
