Hampton says smaller classes a "pet project"?

    TORONTO, Sept. 20 /CNW/ - During tonight's Leader's Debate Howard Hampton
said education money shouldn't go toward "pet projects". Which "pet projects"
does the NDP oppose?

    -   Smaller class sizes in the early grades

    -   School safety including security cameras

    -   More arts and library teachers and guidance counselors

    -   More teachers focused on reaching at-risk youth so they don't drop

    -   Hiring almost 9,000 new teachers

    -   More books for school libraries and supplies for our classroom

    The NDP voted against the McGuinty Liberal investments in our schools.
They voted against $3.7 billion to improve Ontario schools.
    It shows that a vote for the NDP is a vote to go backwards to the
Conservative agenda.
    Hampton calls them "pet projects". We call it progress for our kids.
