They Were Loud And Proud

By Rosalind Russell – Students from Espanola High, Ecole Franco Ouest, and schools in Elliot Lake joined their counterparts with hundreds of other schools on Thursday, April 4th to protest the changes to education by the Ford government.
Algoma-Manitoulin MPP, Mike Mantha, was in Espanola to cheer on the students.
A message was also sent by MP Carol Hughes. Heather Wilson, who is running for the nomination for the Liberals, also had a few words of support to share.
Students talked about how the cuts will affect them and want the Ford government to take another look at the changes.
Dennis Lendrum was also there to talk about autism and the programming and funding changes that are affecting children in the spectrum, especially as it relates to education.
Students from over 600 Ontario schools took part in the walkout as part of the Students Say No Movement.
