‘Tell me why youre doing this’: Sask. rural students rally to keep provincial championship [Video]

Student-athletes from rural communities drove three and a half hours to rally in front of the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation headquarters in Saskatoon on Tuesday.

The Preeceville and Norquay senior girls’ and boys’ basketball teams voiced their frustrations to STF Associate Executive Director Angela Banda.

“I want you to look at me and tell me why you’re doing this. You say ‘we have your back, we care about you’, but you don’t,” said Cassidy Patterson, a grade 12 student.

“Teachers do care about you, and what teachers are fighting for is money so that schools can provide the supports they need for students,” Banda responded.

The STF and the province have been at a standstill for months, with the main point of contention being classroom size and complexity.

The STF plans to withdraw from extracurricular activities on Thursday and Friday this week, which impacts the provincial basketball championship, known as Hoopla.
