Watch the announcement of the Line 2 property (click above!)
Monday April 12th, 2010. On the first day of the OMB hearings the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake dropped their opposition to the Line 2 property. This means that the DSBN can proceed with the land acquisition and start to construct a new elementary school for the children of Virgil and Col. John Butler!
For the 1000's of people who are unable to attend the DSBN meetings on the ARC Review, SOS will be posting videos of the deputations., but only those speakers who give us permission to do so. We will not post videos of those who do not want their deputations made available to the public.

We are faced with the imminent possibility of our local community schools being closed or being reconfigured to the detriment of our children's education. We believe in local community education for all ages.
