Much as I'd like to see the WB school kept open, I would not support another tax on residents to make that happen. I think the reasoning of the School Board for closing Wb (and Trout Creek), was badly flawed; rural schools should not be lumped in with the urban ones as they have specific values for the area in which they are located ANd closing them to avoid doing so to another urban school is particularly unsupportable. I do not think, therefore, that the WB residents should have to pay extra for something that the Board/Provincial govt. should be supporting. Indeed, if there is a special grant or ? for rural schools, that should be applied to both WB and Trout Creek.
