Premier Clark says she will respect court decision

Premier Christy Clark said yesterday that she will respect the court ruling on class size negotiations.

CKNW reported (

"Saying her government will respect Wednesday's BC Supreme Court ruling, Premier Christy Clark has promised to change unconstitutional legislation... which strips teachers of their right to negotiate class sizes and composition.

"We need to go back and make sure that we address the issues that the court raised and we absolutely will do that."


Clark says changes will be made within the one year deadline ordered by the judge, but it's too early to determine if they can be made during contract talks now underway with the BC Teachers' Federation."

This is excellent news, as nine years is already too long for improvements to classroom conditions.

There have been a number of excellent articles about the BC Supreme Court ruling. Here are a few:
