Cuts mean sudden death to sports programs
Local high school students threatened to walk out of class last week after the Dryden Board of Education announced $1,000,000 in budget cuts that will see 58 jobs lost and include a virtual elimination of the sports program.
Queen Elizabeth District High School student John Wyndels told the Bulletin he was planning a school-wide walkout for this morning. A major reason for his protest is the school board’s vote to stop funding any school sports activities and to allow only night and weekend games. Matches are currently held during class time.
Hospital jobs under the budget knife
District Health Centre (DHC) workers felt the budget crunch last week as seven employees received layoff notices, and there may be more to follow as the hospital tries to make up for cutbacks by the Ministry of Health.
