ACTION ON WORKPLACE SAFETY (June 1, 2017)
At June 2, 2017 Provincial Council meeting Minister Hunter (Education) and Minister Flynn (Labour) spoke to the governments undertaking and commitment to address workplace violence in schools. 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..
AMPA 2017 (March 10 - 12) : Fare the well President Paul Elliott (Last AMPA address here
). Welcome President Harvy Bischoff. During the Minister of Education's Q&A sessionPSAT D30 President was able to ask about the disconnect between Infant Hearing Program and Provincial Schools. District 30 continues to represent the interests of Deaf and Hard of Hearing learners as delegates to the Reference Group. With the introduction of a Ford Conservative majority government that group is now questionable.
