Supporting Education

Published on October 14, 2021

To my constituents,

As our government determines where the greatest needs are for investments in education in Ontario, I am working on your behalf to ensure that the education investments required in Flamborough-Glanbrook are met.

My riding is one of the fastest growing regions within the Golden Horseshoe. The communities of Waterdown, Stoney Creek, Binbrook and Hamilton Mountain are attracting young families from the GTA who are looking for a more affordable and safe place to live. Investments by our government, such as expanded daily GO train service to and from Hamilton is make commuting to Toronto that much easier.

With a growing population comes increased pressures on Hamilton school boards to accommodate additional students. Elementary school enrollment in some neighbourhoods is exceeding capacity. Meanwhile, parents of children under the age of 4 are struggling to find adequate child care.

I am requesting that the Ministry of Education make the capital investments necessary to expand child care and elementary student capacity in Flamborough-Glanbrook.
