Of course The Labour Council will endorse these people. They all have the same agenda, eliminate employment in Cornwall and encourage a retirement community. No labour issues and no challenges for counsil. We need to send these retired well pensioned old farts to Florida. An economically devastated community is a community ripe for industrial growth. Most of these old farts have retired form industry and caused all the environmental concerns in Cornwall as well as the unfortunate mill town mentality the city is nationally renowned for. Now again as they did while employed could care less for anyone else but… Read more »

I would like to thank The Cornwall and District Labour Council for their endorsement. I was expecting to see a few other names on that list, but that did not happen. Job growth is important, but so is job diversity. I think an important long term goal is to get a University in Cornwall. We may have to start small, for example partner with Ottawa U to get a satellite campus here (not just the tele-courses). I would also like to investigate the possibility of the local college moving more towards the trades like Alqonquin, and developing more partnerships between… Read more »

Sorry man but have to ask, how often do you gargle.

Let me see, you are a teacher in a sports oriented facility. If it operates like any other similiar educational facilities it is not about the kids but the money. Do you actually fail students and increase the course expectations so when the kids fail at sports they might have tha chance at gainful mployment?

Let’s see a little truth Jason.

Or do you coddle students in order to maintain income and your job, similiar to places such as other continous education facilities?

The OHA teaches the Ontario curriculum, and it has been approved by the Ministry of Education in Ontario.

OHA students are both athletic and academic:

I am a certified teacher in Ontario, I am professional, and I am very proud of my work.

In conclusion, I think it is very cowardly to question my credability hiding behind a computer. Shame on you!

Continuous education facilites receive most of their funding according to success rates. If an individual does not successfully complete an objective in the time frame approved by Ministries/Governments, it affects the success rate which will later influence funding in a big way. Student retention is one other factor that plays a big roll in the funding equation. So basically, a learner must complete objectives in a given time frame (success rate) and the facilities must keep the learner motivated and interested (student retention)… That’s how those people maintain their incomes and jobs.

So, O.K., it might be about the money (where isn’t it, HONESLTY)… But to get the green, the clients must be well taken care of. There are many ways that Ministries/Governments make sure of this.

Jason Read Vin’s statement on meeting the Ontario curriculum, and tell me how your school differs. Secondly, I had to use the call a friend scenario to determine where I question Your credibility. Sadly I must say I lost the call nobody could see the challenge as you do. However I can question your University belief, we already have a university in Cornwall. Ottawa University is set up at St Lawrence college and is not as successful as you would like to assume. Ottawa University has opted to withdraw their in-class courses for teleconferencing due to lack of enrolment and… Read more »

Don’t get too bent out of shape trying to explain to smee the value of education. It is quite obvious that it is lost on him.
Pull your shirt up smee, your redneck is showing.
