A spokesperson for Education Minister Lisa Thompson said the government has no plans to lift the moratorium. “The TDSB has a number of surplus properties and empty schools in Toronto,” said Kayla Iafelice. “Unlike the previous government, our government respects the importance of schools to their communities and rejects their reckless approach to closing schools in this province. “Our government continues to stand behind our moratorium on school closures.”
