Here for Brantford—Brant
Harvey Bischof dedicated a 31-year career in education, including four years as president of the Ontario Secondary Schools Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF), to advocating for students and the publicly funded education system in Ontario. While defending the education system against short-sighted attacks, Harvey was arguably the most prominent educator voice standing up for students’ right to a high-quality system and the value of investment in our schools.
The people of Brantford-Brant deserve to have a representative at Queen’s Park who will champion their issues. Harvey knows that to have a brighter future, we need to invest in people now. We go farther when we work together.
