'Save Char-Lan' goes to Toronto

publisher Nov 9, 2016 - 10:13am

The ‘Save Char-Lan’ Committee and its supporters are taking their fight to Queen’s Park on November 21.

Representatives from the committee announced at Monday night’s regular South Glengarry council meeting that chartered buses from the area will be heading to a rally on the steps of the provincial legislature, sponsored by the Ontario Alliance Against School Closures (OAASC), on that date.

A number of groups, local and province-wide, are planning to participate in the demonstration, including CUPE and the Campaign for Public Education.

“This isn’t a rally anymore. It’s a movement…and Glengarry will be heavily-represented,” said committee member Heather Petrie.

“We have secured Jim McDonell, our (Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry) MPP to speak at the event, as well as Shawn McRae and Martin Lang from the Glengarry Federation of Agriculture.”

Mrs. Petrie added that parents and students representing other schools in the area are “perhaps going to consolidate and join forces…so that we can fill as many buses as we can and go to Queen’s Park and make some noise.”

After hearing that it will cost about $4,000 to rent one coach bus for the Toronto trip, South Glengarry council passed a resolution – introduced by deputy-mayor Frank Prevost – allocating up to $10,000 to the ‘Save Char-Lan’ Committee to help defray campaign-related costs. Mayor Ian McLeod explained that the funds will be dispersed “at the discretion” of township CAO Bryan Brown.

Particulars about the Toronto rally – which is scheduled to begin at 11:30 a.m. on November 21 – including departure time, will be posted soon on the ‘Save Char-Lan’ Facebook page and Twitter feed.
