Normally I do not have a lot of praise IV the Government D'Alberta these days. But I must give credit where credit is due. Thanks ever so kindly II you & Health Minister Gene Zwozdesky IV ensuring that 19 million$ in stable funding for mentally incapacitated kids is being put inII the system over the next three years until MMXIV. Giving kids with neurological troubles an equal footing is much appreciated.

Note: As an aside, why in the hell is Edmonton Public School Board insisting on a DCCXXX (730 day) moratorium on closing schools? Are not Vice-Chairwoman Sarah Hoffman & her colleagues who voted in favour of the moratorium not just delaying the inevitable? School districts in North America & worldwide are consolidating, leasing, renting, & outright selling off buildings they do not need. Should not Edmonton Public do the same since the numbers of students keeps lowering capacitiy to below break even levels anyway?
