The president of the School District 1 education council isn't backing down in his refusal to make budget cuts and is now warning the education minister that if he is forced to cut two per cent, it could mean teacher layoffs and the closure of a school.
Ernest Thibodeau argued on Wednesday that it's unfair to expect the only district in the province that's growing to spend less.
"We are the only district that is increasing in numbers year after year," Thibodeau said. "I welcome them to come and show us where we can cut because we're trying to find it...if we are going to cut $2 million we will have to cut some positions."
