As many of you know, I’ve been actively trying to help save the last high school in all of South Dundas, which happens to be within walking distance of Ross Video.

I’ve publicly spoken twice at Seaway, presented to a special meeting with the board and politicians, had discussions with the Ministry of Education in Toronto, contacted someone I know in the provincial cabinet, blogged on Facebook, and participated in the economic impact report. Why did I do this? Because I believe that not only would the school closure negatively impact Ross, but also the local families that work for Ross, the town, and the students. Basically, it’s just wrong and a bad idea to close Seaway as a high school.

The final meeting is Jan. 31st at 6:30 p.m. in the Seaway gymnasium.

The word is that the more people that show up at this meeting, the higher the chances are that we save the school.

If you care about this issue, please come. If you have kids that go to Seaway or will go to Seaway, please attend this meeting. Bring the kids as well. My impression is too many parents have been far too passive on this issue and this is their last chance. We need to see parents, not just grandparents.
