On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I would like to thank our community, staff, parents and students who communicated their concerns with Bill 2 in reference to Catholic Education to the Minister of Education and our local MLAs. Your powerful advocacy prompted the Government of Alberta to introduce five amendments that were, in part, made to address our concerns. Due to the lateness of the amendments, Bill 2 died on the Order Paper and will not be able to be introduced again until after the election. It would be our hope that these amendments be part of the new legislation.
What I am most proud of, is how our community came together in such short notice and with such strong advocacy. Your commitment to ensuring that our rights as Catholic school supporters were not eroded is sincerely appreciated. Please find attached a letter of thanks from Board Chair, Sandra Dufresne.
