They are typically divided politically, but two local school trustees agree there needs to be more funding for public education, and it should have been a bigger issue in the recent election.

The poll that came closest to calling the result right in Tuesday's provincial election was still wildly wrong. A Forum Research poll done six days before the vote showed a mere two-point gap between the Liberals and the NDP.

Guy Heywood (city) and Alan Nixon (district) in your May 1 issue reinforces the importance of Metro Vancouver's need to construct a new advanced wastewater treatment facility on the North Shore, and the support required from senior levels of government to do so. The new plant is necessary to meet commitments in Metro Vancouver's Integrated Liquid Waste and Resource Management Plan as well as to meet new regulatory requirements set by the federal and provincial governments.
