When I was attending the Ward 7 Edmonton City Council All Candidates Forum the week before last week, I noticed that the handrails were in an atrocious state of disrepair. This was in St. Bernadette Catholic Elementary School & the rails were rusting, blots coming loose from where they were attached to both the floor & walls. Not just IV student safety, but IV the safety of residents & those folks with disabilities/infirmities, these rails should be repaired &/or replaced. There are students in many older schools still, as a result, I would like to see a catch-up on the repair & restoration of older schools, rather than just focusing almost exclusively on new schools in sprawling suburban areas. I am of course referring to the province as a whole in terms of aging school infrastructure, not just Edmonton. Lets see more cooperation between you & school boards.
