NEW WESTMINSTER, B.C. – Jonina Campbell, B.C. Green Party candidate for New Westminster, has been named the party’s Education Critic by leader Andrew Weaver. Campbell will be responsible for bringing forward critical perspectives on the B.C. Liberal government’s education policies, as well as supporting the party’s platform development in education.
“Under a BC Liberal government we have witnessed a decline in supports and services for our students, in particular, those who need them most”, Campbell said. “I will continue to speak out regarding the needs of all of our students, especially those who are most vulnerable.
“School districts need sustainable, stable and predictable funding. The government, through the Ministry of Education, must work with each of our partner groups to solve the myriad of issues that educators, parents, trustees, and students face on a daily basis. Our children deserve better.”
