A rally in support of the fired Vancouver School Board (VSB) trustees will take place tonight at 5:30 pm outside the VSB headquarters at 1580 West Broadway in Vancouver.
The BC Ministry of Education dissolved the VSB after it failed to approve a balanced budget.
- 12 schools in Vancouver face potential closure
- Vancouver School Board dissolved by provincial government
According to Education Minister Mike Bernier, the VSB “misplaced focus on political tactics rather than responsible stewardship.”
At this time, there are no plans for a by-election to vote in a new board of trustees.
VSB-associated unions including the Vancouver Secondary Teachers’ Association and the Canadian Union of Public Employees are organizing tonight’s rally.
