The Liberals do not deserve a majority


I’m really angry that the Liberals are going to get away with under funding our schools and not updating the funding formula.  They very effectively buried the issue by misleading the public into believing that John Tory’s promise to fund faith based schools would take away funds from the public school system. Tory is no less to blame for introducing this “fairness” issue into the campaign instead of attacking the school funding formula issue as Hampton has done.  Hampton is right, media indifference to this issue and ceaseless talk about faith-based school funding is shirking the media’s responsibility to inform the voters about the real issues.It is just wrong that our students here in KitchenerWaterloo who go on trips are going to be charged for the cost of the substitute teachers who have to fill in for the teachers who go on the trip.  It is also wrong that students who wish to play on a school athletics team will have to pay an athletics fee (for football $100) and this is above the substitute-teacher fee they would have to pay if the teacher-coach takes the team to a special tournament.  These fees discriminate against financially disadvantaged families.  The province needs to change the funding formula  The Liberals have avoided this issue all campaign and don’t deserve a majority.

Hi, I am Eric, a retired librarian. I was born in St. Michael's Hospital, Toronto and raised in the downtown area north of the Art Gallery, south of the University of Toronto. I went to Orde Street Public School, Harbord C.I., University College at the UofT and the UofT's Faculty of Library and Information Science. I meet my wife Patricia at FLIS; our first date was on November 15, 1968. We were engaged February 14, 1969 and married on June 21, 1969. Our family includes son, James; daughter-in-law, Erin; (both writers), grand-daughters, Vivian and Eleanor; and Pooka, a small but fierce gray tabby. I would like to hear from any other class of '63 alumni of Harbord C.I. and class of '67 alumni of UofT's University College.
