Toronto French public school board gets $5.2 million for new facility in Etobicoke

The Ontario government will help the city's public French school board buy a disused school in Etobicoke.

The announcement came as part of a three-year, $45-million commitment to French-language education in the province. The Etobicoke funding totals $5.2 million.

The former Parkview Public School will accommodate 200 students when it opens after renovations in 2013.

Local MPP Laurel Broten didn't return a call for comment, but said on her website that "I am proud to be part of a government that values French language education."
