Members of District 30 participated in Workplace Violence Interviews on June 12th, 2017 giving voice to the workplace violence and response of management in Provincial Schools from all classes of PSAT D30 members. The letters from Ministers to the public are provided here:
At AMPA 2015-2016 the inspiring Dennis Edney (counsel for Omar Khadr) spoke about the injustice perpretrated by the government of Canada on Omar Khadr, a child soldier at best, and victor in the supreme court of Canada. Despite his legal victory the government took an inordinate amount of time to settle with Mr. Khadr.
In district 30 we encouraged our members to participate in a letter writing campaign. Here is the response from the Attorney General for Canada. Letter of Raybould.
Our focus now has shifted to clean water for all indigenous communities in Canada, a priority that strikes close to home as we learn that all our schools fail the safe drinking water quality tests for lead.
AMPA 2017 (March 10 - 12) : Fare the well President Paul Elliott (Last AMPA address here
). Welcome President Harvy Bischoff, long may you run. During the Minister of Education's Q&A session I was able to ask about the disconnect between IHP and Provincial Schools. We did receive a written reply from Minister Hunter.
