Location: Adrian Dix Community Office, 5022 Joyce Street, Vancouver

We Saved Gladstone Secondary and Bruce Elementary from Closure!

Thank you to everyone who helped us save our schools. Whether it was door-knocking through the summer heat or signing the petition and spreading the word, every bit of your amazing effort contributed to saving Gladstone and Bruce schools. We couldn’t have done it without you!

For those of you who proudly displayed the lawn sign, a special thanks. The community placed over 900 lawn signs all over the riding, spreading our message far and wide and successfully bringing our message to the next level.

For the moment, we are removing our lawn signs (please return them to our office if you’re able) but the fight is not completely over. We still have work to do for Carleton Elementary whose future is in limbo after the fire. The government has an obligation to rebuild this historic building, no matter how inconvenient it may be for them.
