Letter: Stone's concerns ring hollow in SD73 funding complaints

Editor:

Local MLAs Todd Stone and Peter Milobar tweet out a video complaining about the lack of funding to SD73 for their capital projects.

This comes after 16 years of budget cuts, service cuts and teacher attacks all culminated by the Supreme Court loss paid for by B.C. taxpayers.

Locally, Kamloops received, for the first time in 17 years, funding to expand a school. This is what SD73 board chair Meghan Wade had to say about that, “In 17 years of capital plans, we’ve never been asked for this before.”

I wish Stone had this level of concern toward SD73 and the B.C. public school system when his party was in power.
