Disappointed by lack of local communication

Premier didn't spend one-on-one time with teachers' association members in Hope

As a Hope resident, I am surprised that the premier apparently chose not to visit with local dignitaries because fifteen or so students, parents and teachers were standing across the street from the Blue Moose, exercising their democratic right to protest.

As a teacher and president of the Fraser-Cascade Teachers’ Association, I am disappointed that the premier chose not to grant me a few minutes outside Park Street Manor to hear the concerns of our teachers.

In both protests, demonstrators expressed their political opinion in a peaceful and orderly manner, as is the right of every Canadian.

I doubt that I will ever agree with Ms. Clark on her government’s policies. However, I would have more respect for her as a leader if she had chosen to speak with her constituents that day.

Yours truly

Lynne Marvell

President

Fraser-Cascade Teachers’ Association
