From Simon Little of CKNW:
Premier Christy Clark says she’s ready to sit down and negotiate with teachers over class size and composition.
It’s the premier’s first comments on the issue, since the Supreme Court of Canada issued a landmark ruling yesterday in favour of teachers in their 14 year battle with the province.
Clark says the province was prepared for the possibility of a loss.
“We all want to put more special needs teachers in classrooms, we all want to make sure that classes are the right size for kids, so I’m excited about that possibility we’ve got ahead of us,” she said...
I, for one, sure don't remember our fine Premier talking about finding the money for anything like that in 2002.
Or before the 2013 election.
Or after that election and before her Fassbender-driven 'appeal'.
Or after the 2015 Court of Appeals decision.
Or, for that matter, even last week.
But as for private schools?
Including one specific private school that Ms. Clark is clearly connected to...
And, just so you know, this bit of craven word salad spinning was NOT a one-off with CKNW...Instead, it looks like it is a concerted propaganda blitz in which the 'special needs teacher' is being used as a trope....The shamelessness of it is truly breathtaking.
