From the Save Cornwallis committee:
Closing Cornwallis would be a travesty and would impact not only our kids education but the overall structure of the neighbourhood. From real estate values to the desire to remain in penninsula Halifax, the impact would be widespread.
To date there have been a handful of people expressing their feelings on behalf of all of us, It’s time for everyone to get involved, sign and forward to your friends and social networks, whether you have kids there or not, closing Cornwallis would negatively impact the neighbourhood and the city as a whole. The last public meeting is this Monday night, let’s try to get 1000 or more signatures before then. The petition is included here-
There is also a facebook group set up called “Save Cornwallis Junior High”
