Wilson pleased by community desire to keep Duntroon Central open

(Queen’s Park) Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson applauded the Clearview Accommodation Review Committee for recommending that Duntroon Central Public School remain open.

“The community has made it very clear that rural schools are an essential piece of the local economy,” said Wilson.  “Now it’s up to the school board and the province to recognize the desire of our communities to keep rural schools open.”

Wilson began introducing petitions to keep Duntroon Central open in the Ontario Legislature this week.  More than 570 people have signed the petition so far and more than 101 letters have been sent to Dalton McGuinty to urge the province to keep rural schools open.

The local MPP is encouraging local families to keep the pressure up until the issue has been reviewed by the school board and the province has committed to helping keep rural schools open.
