Education Spokesperson Jonina Campbell on B.C. 2017 Budget

NEW WESTMINSTER B.C. – B.C. Green Party Candidate (New Westminster) and Education Spokesperson, Jonina Campbell, released the following statement in response to the B.C. 2017 Budget:

“I am disappointed in the 2017 budget.

For many of our teachers and parents, Minister de Jong’s declaration has left them shaking their heads.
