These are all problems that are within the government’s ability to remedy if they have the will to act.” — Stephanie Smith, BCGEU President
“We welcome these recommendations which address many of the concerns of front-line staff that were raised in our Choose Children report." — Stephanie Smith, BCGEU President
“It’s time government gives back what it’s taken from children at risk." — Stephanie Smith, BCGEU President.
