January XVIIIth, MMXV
Hon . Gordon Dirks, B. Ed., M. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, Progressive Conservative, Calgary-Elbow
One of VIII (8) kids, The Hon. Greg Rickford, PC, MP seems like a people person who really wants to help kids! Look at the way his daughter Abigail Mae spoils her daddy! What a pair of winning smiles! Or as Mrs. Janet Rickford puts it: "Abigail is less trouble than her father & sometimes she has to babysit him!" Here Greg clears up some stats on an Opposition motion about funding for Ist Nations children in Business Of Supply on Government Orders.
"We are talking about 117,500 students, 61% in band operated schools, 36% in provincial schools, & 3% in federal & private schools across this great country."
Number CCXLVI (246),
