Letters: B.C. government in hiding

I find it very interesting that Education Minister Peter Fassbender say the province is only asking school districts to work efficiently.

I find it very interesting that Education Minister Peter Fassbender say the province is only asking school districts to work efficiently.

This is why they are once again cutting back on education funding?

My question is why doesn’t the Liberal government go after TransLink, B.C. Ferries and ICBC for the same thing instead of hiding behind organizations they created to avoid public questions?

Good luck, school board chair Mike Murray, balancing the school district budget with even more cuts. If I was in your shoes, I would flip out trying to balance the school district budget without using the downloading tactics of those of the provincial government, which can announce proudly that they balanced the budget.
