Louisbourg and the CBVRSB

A group of parents in Louisbourg is hoping to work with the Cape Breton-Victoria Regional school board despite animosity in the past.

The Cape Breton Post reports Brett Hanham, of the George D. Lewis Gateway to Opportunities Society, invited board members to meet with his group and discuss how the school could be used for other community projects.  There has been some animosity between the two sides after the board rejected his group’s initial proposal.  That decision was overridden by Education Minister Karen Casey who approved a pilot project.   Now Hanham says they are trying to mend fences.
