Queen’s Park Update – April 26, 2017

Dear Members,

On April 26, 2017 we had a highly productive meeting with Attorney General Naqvi and Minister Lalonde of Community Safety and Correctional Services, where Chair Eli El-Chantiry outlined your interests within new legislation (as you collectively told us in the PSA survey). Also participating in the discussion was OAPSB VPs Kevin Eccles, Sal Polito and Don Smith, and York PSB Chair Frank Scarpitti representing the Big 12.

The day concluded with a reception where the delegation was joined by the rest of OAPSB Board of Directors, as well Waterloo Chair Tom Galloway, London Chair Jeannette Eberhard and Halton Chair Rob Burton, Vice-Chair Madeleine Levy, Hamilton as well as MPPs from all three parties.

Please find attached Eli’s remarks  at the reception, the media release for the day, and Eli’s presentation (slides with speech) made to the Minsters Naqvi and Lalonde.

Please feel free to share with local media and constituents.


Fred Kaustinen, Executive Director OAPSB
