Prince Edward-Hastings’ MPP wants the province to stop the process of potentially closing 600 schools across Ontario.

This comes after the province decided against stopping the process, which could include Lady Eaton Elementary School in Lindsay.

MPP Todd Smith tells Moose FM he wants to see the process stopped temporarily until boards consult with the communities that will be impacted by the closures.

Premier Kathleen Wynne tells the legislature rural schools have seen declining enrolment, despite the province putting millions of dollars towards keeping them open.
