We live in one of the most expensive places to live in Canada, have some of the highest taxes, are one of the only provinces to pay a health premium -- and yet we are second to last in the country for education spending. How can this be?
Courtney Cardy is a mother of two. Born and raised in Beautiful British Columbia, she moved to Mission, B.C. in 2010 from Langley because she felt it was very important to raise her kids in a close knit, rural community. <br> <br> Courtney helped form the Stave Falls Community Association, which is currently in the process of leasing the local elementary school (Stave Falls Elementary) to keep it from being sold. They will be using the school as a local community centre. <br> <br> Before staying home to raise her children, she worked as a computer technician. Courtney is a continuous learner; she plans to return to studies to pursue a career in web design.
