B.C. schools need seismic upgrades, urges parent Jennifer Stewart
Early Edition, CBC Radio – April 28, 2015
There are 202 schools in British Columbia rated by the government as “high-risk” and vulnerable to damage and structural failure in the case of an earthquake, and a Vancouver parent said officials aren’t working fast enough to make those schools safe.
“It’s always a reminder that we send many of our children to school to spend six hours a day in buildings that are rated with a high likelihood to fall down in the event of an earthquake,” Jennifer Stewart, a member of the Vancouver School District Parent Advisory Council and the founder of Families Against Cuts to Education told The Early Edition’s Rick Cluff.
