Here we go. Dustin Duncan for the 2nd time in a week. We shall see how he's received at #stfcouncil. Just as an aside, I'm expecting a canned speech and not much else.
Introducing the minister. Has been in politics since he was 26 years old. Introduction finished. Smattering of applause... I didn't clap.

Just remembering a couple other moments from Duncan's session yesterday... He was talking about the Covid funding from the feds and how it was temporary. A teacher yells out that Covid isn't over. He replies and says it's in a different phase now. She's like "Yeah, okay." 😂
Re: the Legacy Christian Academy abuse scandal and his response. He explains the measures he's taken to remove accused individuals and monitor schools more closely. After his explanation, several teachers yell out "Cut their funding!"

Duncan describing all the capital funding for education. Colour me unimpressed. We need those funds for kids in the classroom, too. #reginateachersconvention
Talking about mental health. No one can argue this is important but being proactive is necessary. Support the social programs up front. $500,000 for mental health first aid. That's a drop in the bucket. 🤷🏼♀️

Despite dozens of abuse allegations including several against the director of Grace Christian School (formerly at Legacy Academy), they assigned a government hired administrator to try to make it work so this school could remain open WITH public funds. But it gets worse... 2/8
