OTTAWA – NDP Leader Andrea Horwath must eliminate the confusion suddenly surrounding her party’s position on one public school system after two of her candidates spoke in favour of the policy, including Ottawa Centre’s Joel Harden.
Here's the exchange at a recent debate:
Harden is joined in his private agenda on school boards by Sault Ste. Marie NDP candidate Michele McCleave-Kennedy.
At the OSSTF Communications/Political Action Committee (CPAC) Meeting in November 2016, McCleave-Kennedy helped lead sessions to establish a single education system. A public report on the meeting says:
"I met our local Sault Ste. Marie Labour Council President, Michele McCleave- Kennedy. Labour Councils do a lot for the community such as community outreach and education. Next big push will be the “One Single Education System.”
Ottawa Centre and Sault Ste. Marie are two key ridings in this election. Both Harden and McCleave-Kennedy won contested nominations.
Where does Andrea Horwath stand on this issue?
