I just don't understand how the Edmonton Public School Board (EPSB) & other jurisdictions are complaining about a lack of space when a solution is staring them right in the face. EPSB should reopen schools like Eastwood & others to bus these kids in from newer areas. The same with other jurisdictions like Calgary. Many of these older schools are built with brick & heavy duty 1930-1960's construction materials which arguably in many cases are better than modern ones. Then area school tax & property tax revenues would go up, meaning more for EPSB & provincial coffers!
