The Hon. Teresa Woo-Paw, MLA is a former Chairwoman of the Calgary Public School Board. As such she is very interested in getting proper English skills to new immigrants who are to become Canadians but live in a rural setting so that they can adapt faster. She talks of such a program at NorQuest College.
