This message screamed and shouted as loud as possible by Grant G
Today, December 31st/2015....The new BC Liberal education minister Mike Bernier had the audacity to blame the 20 year delay in seismically upgrading vulnerable brick and mortar schools on schoolboards ...Absolutely mindboggling that these BC Liberal can look themselves in the mirror...Effing asshole you are Mike Bernier
According to Education Minister Mike Bernier, in some cases the delays getting the work underway rest with the school districts.
"I think this earthquake is a perfect example and a wake-up call of why we don't want to be waiting any longer," said Bernier on Thursday morning.
"It's one of the top priorities that I have within my
mandate to continue to work with the school districts. The funding is there.
"Of course, the timing of that can only go as fast, and as quickly, and as efficiently as the school boards themselves work with us to make sure those priorities are delivered," Bernier said.
VSB chair says the money isn't thereBut according to Vancouver School Board Chair Mike Lombardi it's the ministry that is responsible for the delays stopping the upgrades from getting done.
There are 68 high-risk schools in Vancouver alone with no plan in place, and 21 of those are rated by the province at H1, the highest of the three levels of high risk, in the ratings system used by the province.
"We've done our preliminary work, but there's been no approval at the ministry level," said Lombardi this week.
"We want to get the job done," Lombardi said. "What we need is the government to step up to the table, live up to their commitment and sign those project agreements so we can start doing the work."
Read the below information, watch the question period...
What goddamn part of Gordon Campbell`s and the B.C. Liberals promises don`t you understand Christy Clark..?
May 4, 2015 - Question Period - SEISMIC UPGRADES FOR SCHOOLS -
"The BC Liberal government has failed to keep the Premier's promise to upgrade all schools in British Columbia by 2020. A timeline that was announced in 2005, re-announced in 2009, again in 2011 and again in 2013. But just two months ago the Minister of Education added ten more years to that timeline - saying schools would not be upgraded until 2030. Here's my question to the Minister of Education asking how his government can say school seismic upgrades are their number one priority but then fail to keep their promise."
Christy Clark, you are the most disgusting female ever elected to public office!!!
I hope that when the big Cascadia earthquake pops you are buried in rubble....don`t get me wrong, I don`t want Christy Clark killed in an earthquake, just a few broken bones, scrapes and cuts..
.Can`t wait to hear what excuse Christy Clark uses to explain to all those parents why their schools are all busted up.(Hopefully Empty)
Just couldn`t end 2015 without a snarl and a growl...
Oh, I almost forget.......Happy New Year Everyone.
