“Courage, my friends: ‘tis not too late to build a better world.” - Tommy Douglas
The first day of school is an annual ceremony of hope. The crisp fall air gives us a lift. Our energy and optimism rise. This is going to be a great new year for learning, for doing, for sharing with old and new friends!
Another school year begins. After a year of drastic changes and uncertainties, you are heading into another year of continued uncertainties. Schools have adapted to the public health emergency by figuring out ways to keep everyone safe while keeping the spirit of learning alive. What an amazing achievement!
Your greatest gift in all of this is the gift of connection – to each other, and to the past and future of human society - through the power of sharing and learning. That’s your magical power.
The Federal NDP will improve education in Canada by implementing:
Universal, affordable, accessible child care
No interest student loans
Canada-wide high-speed internet access
``Here in Columbia-Kootenay, I am ready to follow through! Quality, affordable child care is one of the priorities I have heard from families and employers throughout the region.``

Best wishes to everybody working in education: students, parents, teachers, teaching and learning support staff, school bus drivers, custodians, food program workers, lunch monitors, community volunteers, administrators, and school office staff.
