  • - It's been one tough year under

  • the Ford Conservative regime.

  • With cuts to education funding

  • and more cuts and cancellations to public services,

  • life in Ontario has become much more difficult

  • for families and for workers.

  • No doubt, it's been a hard year for all of you.

  • With all of these challenges,

  • I want to say just how proud I am

  • of the work that you have done

  • to defend publicly funded public education.

  • Inside schools, just like this one behind me,

  • it's you, the teachers, early childhood educators,

  • educational support professionals,

  • and professional support personnel,

  • that spend hours and hours to prepare,

  • create and deliver high-quality education.

  • Know that you make a difference in the lives of students.

  • This year, we mobilized and engaged community members

  • to mount a fight back against cuts,

  • and I can tell you that it's working,

  • and it's gaining momentum.

  • Over a 100,000 people have joined us

  • to email their MPP about class size.

  • More than 30,000 attended the April 6th rally

  • at Queen's Park,

  • and thousands more across Ontario signed a petition,

  • attended a community rally, wore our button.

  • They also dressed in red on Fridays

  • and shared messages on social media.

  • Together, we took action and said no to cuts.

  • And for all of this,

  • for your work to defend and to deliver public education,

  • and for always going beyond, I want to thank you so much.

  • Our collective resistance to stand up for children

  • is making a difference.

  • After that last school bell rings in June,

  • please take the time to reenergize and recharge,

  • and then let's continue to talk to our neighbors and family.

  • Ask them to join the fight

  • and hold their local MPP accountable.

  • We must keep the pressure on because students are worth it.
