|EMSB PLEASED WITH LATEST QUEBEC SUPERIOR COURT RULING ON ST. PATRICK SCHOOL|
MONTREAL, JULY 13 2005— The English Montreal School Board (EMSB) is pleased with today’s decision by Quebec Superior Court Judge Jean-Francois Buffoni, denying a request for an interlocutory injunction by plaintiffs for St. Patrick Elementary School in the Plateau.
As a result of this ruling, the resolution adopted by the EMSB to close St. Patrick and remove its deed of establishment remains in place.
EMSB Director General Antonio Lacroce stated that parents of St. Patrick students will be advised of this ruling. Students had already been enrolled elsewhere, primarily at nearby Bancroft.
