Funding for Education

Mr. Love: — Mr. Speaker, that minister doesn’t have his facts straight, and I will look at the words he put on the record. He claimed inflationary pressures’ impacts on divisions are “relatively minor.” That’s wrong, Mr. Speaker. Like families, divisions are being squeezed on all sides by the affordability crisis. Chinook School Division school buses cover 149 rural routes. They travel 3.8 million kilometres every year. Does the minister honestly think that these cost pressures don’t have an impact on a school division’s bottom line?
