HURON-BRUCE MPP LISA THOMPSON TALKS NEW MINISTER OF EDUCATION JOB 7/5/2018 9:03:36 AM
Last week Premier Doug Ford named his cabinet featuring 21 people including some local MPPs.
One of the MPPs is Huron-Bruce's Lisa Thompson who was named the Minister of Education and as a member of the Ontario Treasury Board.
Thompson says that she is humbled and honoured by the appointments and is looking forward to having a positive impact on the Education Ministry.
A big topic for the Minister of Education is school closures, and Thompson says while there is a current moratorium on school closures it will be hard to cancel existing ones.
Another big topic is the sexual education curriculum but Thompson says come down to proper consultations.
That is something that will change under Thompson's leadership as she says she is committed to allowing everyone to have a say about the curriculum.
But at the end of the day, our local MPP says that Huron-Bruce is her number one priority
