Incumbent SD85 Trustee Anne Hory

SD 85 trustee candidate

We somehow left Ann out of the SD 85 section of our election coverage last week.

(Ed. Note: We somehow left Ann out of the SD 85 section of our election coverage last week. It wasn’t on purpose and in fact was, plainly and simply, a stupid mistake, one the Gazette deeply regrets. We offer sincere apologies to Ann Hory for the error.)

1. What would you do to resolve teachers job action?

If I could wave my magic wand I would remove public education from the Essential Services Act. I would restore full collective bargaining and the right to strike. There would be enormous pressure on both parties to sit at the table and truly negotiate a settlement.

2. What can SD 85 do to keep schools open in the face of potential funding cuts?

Stabilized and adequate funding, giving us the ability to plan ahead 3 to 5 years would be a huge help. Funding by way of annual grants is a haphazard, inefficient way to run a multi million dollar operation.

3. Is SD85 undercutting private business by renting out public supported property such as Robert Scott School?

People renting space in Robert Scott School are private businesses contributing to the social and economic well-being of Port Hardy. It is the perfect place for a daycare! Utilities, water, heat, etc. still have to be paid for . Taxpayers are footing the bill, it makes sense to recover these costs if possible.

4. Why should people vote for you?

Apart from food, shelter and love, I believe an education is the single most important thing you can give any child.

Public education means all children have an equal opportunity and a fair chance at a bright future.

Public education is the foundation on which everything else stands. I am experienced, capable, and vocal on behalf of students and passionate about their well being. I am 100 per cent committed to students coming first in the B.C. school system.
