Note on the Proposed Amendments to the Education Act

The Minister of Education held a briefing a few hours ago outlining her plans to implement the School Closure Process Review Report.

The remarks of the Minister and the Amendment text are available on the website, as is the review report, links are below.

I will be preparing an analysis tonight and will forward that along. If anyone else sees anything to be concerned about let me know. The MLA for Halifax Citadel, Leonard Preyra, has also encouraged us to let him know if we see anything that might need to be tweaked. His email is preyra (at)

To be clear though, I am not expecting anything bad, the Minister’s comments are completely in line with the report and she is very much in support of it.

It is simply far easier, if we spot something, to fix something now rather than later.
