I want to take a second to address the situation with the teachers and Bill 75.

After I met with over 400 teachers from across Cape Breton, it was clear to me that classroom conditions were their biggest issue. This is why we put together the Council to Improve Classroom Conditions, a group which is mostly made up of teachers. We've accepted EVERY recommendation this council put forward and we've invested in $20 million to support them. Here are a few of the recommendations:

- Providing classroom caps for grades 7-12. This will result in the hiring of 193 new teachers.
- Developing a student attendance policy and a student discipline policy.
- Reviewing data collection and reporting requirements.

I know the last year hasn't always been easy. I voted for Bill 75 because I felt there was a disconnect between what the union wanted and what the teachers wanted. I am fully committed to helping our teachers move forward and the Liberals are fully committed to improving classroom conditions. If elected again, we will commit to doing a full review of school board funding.
