Queens Park Rally to Save School Pools
Host: OFFICIAL PETITION TO STOP THE CLOSURE OF TORONTO SCHOOL POOLS facebook group
Tuesday, April 15, 2008 10:00am – 3:00pm
Queens Park (Media Gallery and Public Gallery) Toronto, ON
Effective June 2008, the Toronto District School Board will be closing 23
pools. Additional pools have been identified to close effective June 2009.
the estimated cost savings of $4 million will be applied toward the Board's budget shortfall.
Unfortunately, the funding formula used by the Provincial Ministry of Education does not provide school boards the ability to operate and maintain pools.
Come to Queen's Park and tell Premier McGuinty that Toronto's school pools must be saved.
The press conference will be held on Tuesday, April 15, 2008 at 10 am at Queen's Park Media Studio.
At 2 pm during Question Period, Toronto MPPs will be asking the Premier to save Toronto's school pools.
Please come and attend the press conference and/or be at the Queen's Park Public Gallery during Question Period. Your participation will ensure this initiative succeeds.
It is during the school day, so try and get parent approval. Toronto school pools must remain open!
