I’m angry! Citizens must endure another attack by government on BC’s K-12 education system?

I’m angry and fed up. Taxpayers continue to pay legal fees because Minister Fassbender has a different opinion of the Supreme Court of BC regarding government’s actions which have twice been pronounced as unconstitutional.

I’m angry, fed up and frustrated. Here again children and parents must put up with continuous instability in the education system, instability that’s been initiated, prolonged and exacerbated by the government just as Justice Griffin ruled they did in the past?

I’m angry, fed up, frustrated, and disillusioned that citizens are inundated with disinformation and propaganda. The government continues to promote their version of reality by the omission of essential facts and casts blame on teachers. Justice Griffin ruled the government did not bargain in good faith in prior contract talks. The government continues its bad faith bargaining. Conclusion: they try again to goad teachers into job action.

I’m angry, fed up, frustrated, disillusioned and incensed that my rights as a Canadian citizen have been violated by this Liberal government which seems to think that it’s above the law and need not abide by courts’ decisions. My constitutional rights are being denied by the stonewalling actions of this Liberal government.

However, my outrage about the situation continues to fuel my resistance to the current B.C. government’s attack on democracy. No government is above the rule of law. No institution is above the rule of law. No one is above the rule of law.
