There is a northern voice on a panel that has the potential to shape the future of Manitoba.
The nine member commission that has been tasked with a full review of the K-12 education system here in the Province includes Thompson lawyer Jill Quilty.
The Pallister Government announced the commission earlier this week, and Education Minister Kelvin Goertzen says that nothing, including the elimination of elected school boards, is off the table.
Quilty unsuccessfully ran in October’s election for a seat on the School District of Mystery Lake board of trustees, finishing last among candidates with only 690 votes.
The commission is expected to wrap up their review and present their findings by next February.
