In the case of the Wells Street public school, it's situated in the heart of the town. Essentially, it is really a community centre. The school board is seriously contemplating shutting the school down. The people in my community, in the town of Aurora, are very concerned about that and have asked me to appeal to the Minister of Education to ensure that this historic building-and that Wells Street public school as an active school within our community-is not shut down; that it's allowed to continue as an active school.
I would ask the Minister of Education to intervene to ensure the appropriate funding is available to sustain that building as an active school in our community.
