Cheques for school strike money to be mailed in late October

VANCOUVER – Cheques for the $40 a day promised to parents of children aged 12 and under during the education dispute will be mailed out in late October.

The money was promised by the B.C. Government to help pay for daycare when the dispute continued into September. About 92 per cent of those eligible have already registered.

There were 13 school days missed so parents will get cheques for those days in the mail.

For parents who have not yet signed up for the money, you can still do so until January 2015. For those who have signed up, the cheques will likely arrive in early November.
