Today, NDP Leader Ryan Meili wrote to Scott Moe to demand a return to the Legislature for Premier Scott Moe to answer for his government’s disastrous return-to-school plan.
“It’s clear that the Premier was hoping that if he ignored this problem for long enough, it would just go away,” said Meili. “Everyone in the province knew that with overcrowded classrooms and overstretched school budgets, getting kids back to school safely would be a challenge. But instead of stepping up and finding a solution, this government wasted so much time they had to delay the return to school. With all of this confusion, it’s time for families, teachers, school staff and school divisions to get real answers from this government.”
