    Coalition AvenirLa ministre de l’Enseignement supérieur, Hélène David, s’oppose totalement à l’idée de rehausser les exigences à l’entrée du baccalauréat en enseignement afin que nos futurs professeurs soient mieux sélectionnés, formés et accompagnés. Selon Jean-François Roberge - député de Chambly, si l’on souhaite valoriser davantage notre langue, il faut d’abord s’attarder à la formation de nos enseignants, puisque c’est par eux que se transmet la maîtrise du français.

    Bill Walker MPPLETTER TO THE EDITOR Dear Editor: A historic health care rally occurred at Queen’s Park this Saturday, with hundreds of doctors, patients, and other health care professionals joining together to protest the Liberal Government’s gutting of Ontario’s health care system. We’ve seen the Wynne Liberals cut $815-million from physician services, $50-million from seniors’ physiotherapy services, $20-million from the assistive devices program, and 50 medical residency positions. We’ve also seen the Government cut more than 2,000 children with autism from the Intensive Behavioural Intervention (IBI) therapy waitlist, the only treatment that is statistically effective at improving the development of autistic children. But this is not the first time this Government has forced Ontarians to pay out of their own pocket for much-needed health-care services. Delisting has been extensive under this Government, beginning in 2004 with eye exams, physiotherapy, chiropractic care, and most recently, they quietly cut funding for test strips that diabetics use to monitor their blood sugar levels. The reality is that the government’s continuing cuts are a result of their scandal, waste, and mismanagement. This is a government that wasted $1-billion on the e-Health scandal and another $1.2 billion on the Gas Plant fiasco. This is a government that has let 39 per cent of every dollar for home care go toward administration and bureaucracy rather than frontline care. They are in fact so desperate to spin these cuts that Health Minister Eric Hoskins tried to blame their mismanagement on Ontario’s physicians. In fact, they’ve tried to blame it on everyone except themselves: hospitals, nurses, and even patients. For Ontario’s patients, life is getting harder under the Liberals. Each cut translates into extra days waiting to see their doctor, an extra month waiting for an essential surgery, or months of waiting for a nursing bed. Bottom line, with a reported 1,343 constituents looking for a doctor in Bruce-Grey and 800,000 people across Ontario without a family physician today, these cuts are making physician shortages even worse in Ontario. I believe Ontarians deserve a government that invests in frontline health care workers and makes the health of patients a top priority. It’s time to tell Premier Wynne that enough is enough. Our most vulnerable people shouldn’t be paying for this government’s mistakes. My colleagues and I will continue to hold the government to account for how their mismanagement is taking money out of health care. We will not stop fighting until we have a government and a Health Minister that values frontline workers, and unequivocally puts patients first and puts the money back where it belongs so that Ontarians can get the care they need and deserve. Bill Walker, MPP Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound

    Francois LegaultPhilippe Couillard refuse de s’engager à mettre en place des prématernelles 4 ans pour tous les enfants du Québec, au cours des 5 prochaines années. Au Québec, chaque année, 12 000 jeunes décrochent de l’école sans avoir obtenu un diplôme. Toutes proportions gardées, c’est 2 fois plus qu’en Ontario. Actuellement, les enfants qui ont des difficultés d’apprentissage sont pris en charge trop tard. Tous les experts le disent : pour réduire le décrochage, il faut agir tôt. Tous les enfants devraient être évalués, au plus tard à l’âge de 4 ans, et des services éducatifs devraient commencer à être donnés immédiatement, en particulier aux enfants avec des difficultés d’apprentissage, ceux qu’on appelle les EHDAA. La CAQ propose d’offrir la prématernelle gratuite, dès l’âge de 4 ans, à tous les enfants du Québec. Et la CAQ propose d’offrir tous les services éducatifs nécessaires aux enfants qui ont des difficultés d’apprentissage, dès l’âge de 4 ans. C’est une tendance mondiale. En Ontario, aux États-Unis, en Europe, la majorité des enfants commencent l’école à 4 ans. Le Québec est en retard. Les acteurs du milieu de l’Éducation et les parents attendent du leadership, de l’ambition et des mesures fortes de la part du premier ministre. À 3 reprises en Chambre aujourd’hui, Philippe Couillard a refusé de s’engager à mettre en place des prématernelles 4 ans pour tous les enfants du Québec, au cours des 5 prochaines années.

    Francois LegaultJe demande à Philippe Couillard de mettre en place la prématernelle 4 ans pour tous les enfants sur une période de 5 ans à compter de 2017. Comme vous le savez, la CAQ a tenu un colloque dimanche dernier sur le thème de l’éducation. C’était très motivant et très inspirant. Encore une fois, la CAQ ne se contente pas de critiquer, elle fait des propositions constructives. Un constat fort se dégage : le décrochage scolaire est un problème grave qui pèse sur l’avenir du Québec. Plus de 12 000 jeunes décrochent à chaque année. Toutes proportions gardées, c’est 2 fois plus qu’en Ontario. Les pays les plus performants, les pays les plus riches et qui ont les meilleurs taux de réussite, ont misé sur l’école de 4 à 18 ans. L’école de 4 à 18 ans, c’est payant pour les enfants, payant pour les parents et payant pour la société. Actuellement, les enfants qui ont des difficultés d’apprentissage sont pris en charge trop tard, et ça c’est quand ils sont pris en charge. Tous les experts le disent. Pour un enfant qui a des difficultés d’apprentissage, les interventions les plus efficaces sont celles entreprises lorsque l’enfant est en bas âge. Avec la prématernelle à 4 ans accessible à tous, on dépisterait les problèmes d’apprentissage plus tôt. Il faut investir et offrir plus d’orthopédagogues et plus d’orthophonistes, mais aussi plus de services spécialisés en orientation de carrière pour nos adolescents. Pour nous, l’école de 4 à 18 ans, c’est une solution ambitieuse pour s’attaquer au décrochage. On doit se donner comme objectif que plus aucun jeune ne tombe entre les mailles du système. Mais pour y arriver, ça prend plus que des beaux discours et des vœux pieux. Je demande donc au premier ministre de présenter un plan pour instaurer la prématernelle 4 ans dans toutes les écoles du Québec sur un horizon de 5 ans. Il n'y a pas de raison que les enfants du Québec ne puissent pas bénéficier de ces mesures qui ont fait leurs preuves ailleurs. Le Québec a besoin de projets inspirants pour retrouver le goût d’avancer. L’école de 4 à 18 ans, c’est un message fort pour valoriser l’éducation au Québec. L’école de 4 à 18 ans, c’est un projet d’avenir qui mise sur notre plus grande richesse : nos jeunes.

    PEINDPNDP Leader Talks Decisions in a Global Context FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE- St. Peters Bay, PE-(April 26, 2016) NDP Leader, Mike Redmond addressed the PEI Federation of Municipalities AGM yesterday in St. Peter's Bay. The NDP Leader urged all Municipalities to think globally when decisions are made in our communities. Decisions must be made with respect to the affects on our environment and the people across this Country and around the world. "All levels of governance have a major impact on our well being, we are Islanders and Canadians and as such must be leaders on the world stage", stated Redmond. Decisions like filling in ditches in Charlottetown have cost the taxpayers 25 million dollars and have had a negative impact on the environment and the water supply. On the federal level Redmond was critical of the Liberal Governments sale of arms to Saudi Arabia, pointed to their abysmal human rights record and the war in Yemen, that has killed some 3000 people, 700 of whom were children. "We have a social responsibility to create a sustainable future for all of our children, poverty, housing and the grave inequalities that exist are equally shared with all levels of government", concluded Redmond.

    Nova Scotia NDPThe NDP is calling on Stephen McNeil and the Liberals to hold a vote on Bill 43, the Voluntary Blood Donations Act, which would ban pay-for-plasma clinics in Nova Scotia. According to NDP health critic Dave Wilson: “The Liberals refuse to allow a vote on this important legislation. Nova Scotians do not want to see corporations buying and selling blood and plasma. Paying for plasma is a slippery slope.”

    Coalition AvenirDimanche dernier à l'UQTR - Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières, plus d'une centaine de personnes, dont plusieurs intervenants et experts issus du milieu scolaire, ont parlé d'éducation. L'événement était animé et organisé par le porte-parole caquiste en éducation, Jean-François Roberge - député de Chambly. Il s'agit du point culminant de la tournée en éducation du député, qui s'est amorcée en automne dernier. Dorénavant, offrir la prématernelle 4 ans gratuite à tous et empêcher les mineurs de décrocher sans diplôme feront partie prenante de l'engagement politique de la CAQ en éducation. « Plus que jamais, nous devons mettre en place un arsenal de mesures pour lutter contre le décrochage scolaire. J’en suis d’autant plus convaincu après avoir entendu tous ces experts et représentants du milieu de l’éducation échanger dans ce forum non partisan. Dans les prochains mois, je souhaite de tout cœur que toutes les formations politiques débattent des propositions discutées aujourd’hui et s’approprient plusieurs d’entre elles », explique Jean-François Roberge.

    Brad WallOur hearts and sympathies go out to John Ridsdel's family after the news of his death today. His life was taken away in a brutal act of murder by those with diametrically opposed values to the ones we hold. It is hard to believe this could happen to someone who was raised in Yorkton. It heightens our awareness to this global threat of terrorism that we ought never to take lightly. As a nation, we must always remain vigilant and bring individuals who wish to cause us harm, like those in this al-Qaeda linked group, to justice. On behalf of the people of Saskatchewan, we offer our condolences and prayers for better days to come for the Ridsdel family and for the other hostages still at risk.
