With the latest round of Education Development Charges (EDCs) increases by both the Catholic and Public boards despite construction industry and government objections, does this mean the very communities paying for new schools will actually get the schools being built.
Many question the very boards that give schools and pupil spots to those outside the community especially in light of the fact that the new charges are paid for by those purchasing new homes.
Lets face it, builders don’t absorb these charges. Charges like these are passed on to the purchasers yet in the past some schools have been given away to others outside the community.
Let us know what you think about costs being passed down to residents that may not even be allowed into local schools or should some protection be included to ensure those paying for these schools are actually allowed in.
