Rutland Middle School Petition
The RMS PAC have started an online petition to send to the BC education minister Rob Fleming and premier John Horgan. For those who may not know the BC education ministry has had Rutland middle as a top priority for 10 years, without anything happening. The school is 70 years old and has many issues. RMS isnít on the BC ministries 5 year plan for a replacement, by then the school will be 75 years old. If you attended RMS, itís exactly the same; same windows, same doors, same heating, same floors, etc. If youíd like to show your support please sign the petition, if not thatís ok
