Cullen Cries Misinformation

WINNIPEG - Manitoba's education minister claims misinformation is being spread about Bill 64.

Cliff Cullen says the opposition NDP and others are doing this so he has released a document to counter these politically-motivated campaigns.

He says it addresses misconceptions over school closures and concerns about poverty and centralization.

Manitoba School Boards Association president Alan Campbell says it's not surprising Cullen is accusing them of spreading incorrect information but still disappointing.

Bill 64 paves the way for the province's English-language school divisions to be merged into 15 geographic regions overseen by one education authority.
