Montreal’s major school board, the Commission Scholaire de Montreal, is facing $40 million in cuts from the province to their building maintenance budget.
Yet according to an Access to Information request filed by The Rebel (see below), that same school board seems to have no problem scraping together $8 million dollars to lavish on the children of new Muslim migrants from Syria.
That's $3.1 million for new teachers for the Syrians. $534,000 for teacher support and administration. $448,000 for meals -- Muslim halal meals, I’m guessing.
$1.27 million for daycare, too. Wow — hey, I’m a Canadian citizen and a taxpayer. Can I get free daycare? Or is that just for foreigners?
If I were a parent in Montreal’s biggest school system, I’d be asking why my child’s needs come second to foreigners who are being preferred because their religion and country of origin is being treated by the Liberal Party as superior to our own.
