St. John’s Centre NDP MHA Gerry Rogers hosted a wildly successful town hall last night, and brought some of the most pressing concerns raised there to the House of Assembly today. Rogers says seniors, in particular, are deeply concerned about coping with the punitive austerity measures in Budget 2016.

 

St. John’s Centre MHA Gerry Rogers says a town hall she is hosting tomorrow night (Wednesday, May 4) will truly engage people in discussion on the 2016 provincial budget and may even come up with some suggestions for government.

“We'll look at a number of issues, how they are affected by the budget, and explore what we can do as a community,” said Rogers.

Today in the House of Assembly, St. John’s Centre MHA Gerry Rogers revisited questions which the Minister of Education would not answer when she asked them last week. Since 2011, four schools in St. John’s Centre have been closed, and Holy Cross Junior High on Rickett’s Road faces the same fate.

St. John’s Centre MHA Gerry Rogers says appointed school trustees should not be allowed to close a junior high school in her district. Holy Cross Junior High is one of five schools in the province facing closure at next month’s school board meeting.

NDP MHA for St. John’s Centre Gerry Rogers agrees with parents in her district who feel the closure of a neighbourhood school will have lasting negative effects on their children.

 

It’s December and we’re all so busy.. We're stretched for time or money, we're running trying to get everything done….. the right gift for everyone, finding a tree, decorating, cooking, running from concert to concert. It can all feel so overwhelming!
