Oct. 19/05Thank you to everyone who participated in the show of support for Queen Mary teachers yesterday. We had a great response and lots of media coverage. In addition to the CKNW. CBC TV, City TV coverage yesterday, and a nice photo in The Province this morning, these are some links to the media coverage from yesterday’s QM rally. I also think the Courier has something coming out today. It is my hope that strong shows of support for teachers will encourage the government to work with them to reach a speedy and fair resolution to the current crisis. I am also pleased to report that some parents at Kit Secondary and holding their a rally tomorrow. – Patti

  1. This event went off very well. We did a telephone and email blitz and were met with overwhelming support from the parents we called. Many wanted to come but were unable to due to work or other commitments, but we had lots of parents and kids with creative signs on the line this morning. We had very a good media response and tried to consistently spread the message that we value and respect our teachers and request that the government sit down and work with them in a respectful way to get kids back in school. I encourage parents at other schools to hold their own rallies — all it takes is lots of calls and emails. -Patti Bacchus
