January VIth, MMXV
Hon. Gordon Dirks, B. Ed., M. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, Progressive Conservative, Calgary-Elbow
I am afraid Executive Dissertations must apologize to the Hon. Rob Nicholson, PC, MP, Conservative, Niagara Falls & this entry, Jamie Nicholls, MP. Due to a power outage, somehow my post on Mr. Nicholls didn't get saved & so I must feature his quote alphabetically out of order since I had to retype it from scratch with Minister Nicholson coming before Mr. Nicholls, instead of the other way around.
In Presenting Petitions, Jamie offers up a petition from his constituents who want better protection IV bus drivers when they are assaulted physically. This makes sense Gordon as how are the drivers supposed to drive students to & from school & other destinations in safety if they themselves are not safe?
"Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to table a petition on behalf of the people living on the south shore pertaining to the assaults on bus drivers that happen every year. They want a new criminal code offence punishing the assault of bus drivers."
Number CCXIII (213),
