2022 election priorities

From ontarioschooltrustees.org:

My name is Emma Travis. I am a proud and loving mother of 4, supportive and adoring wife to a trucker, smart business owner, and I am an eternal optimist. I am not a wordsmith so here is a simple list of what a vote for me means:

  • Support for programs that eliminate barriers and create equal access to education for all students.
  • Support for tolerance and inclusion of all students
  • Support for parental choice within schools for vaccines and sexual education
  • Improved mental health support for all students and staff
  • Fight to keep Adventure Class open and create more adventure classes in other schools within our board
  • Support integrative and hands-on learning
  • Never force children to wear masks again (choice should remain with the parents)
  • No more cancel culture in schools

I will fight to ensure our children have the necessary physical, emotional, mental, and psychological skills to survive and thrive in real life.

Issues and views

  • Supports parental choice within schools for vaccines and sexual education
  • Never force children to wear masks again (choice should remain with the parents)
