Conservative leader Brian Mulroney says he wants to increase the number of Canadians using virtual classrooms, virtual conferences and virtual 5k events, and create a national online virtual learning resource.
The Liberal Leader says the government has the resources to create these online platforms.
“We are going to invest in virtual classrooms and virtual conferences, and we’re going to create an online virtual library.
We’re going into the digital world, we’re into the future of education.
We are going into a digital world that is open and inclusive,” Mulrondy told CBC’s Power & Politics.
Mulriony also says the Liberals will bring forward legislation to amend the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) to better protect workers from workplace-related risks.
Mulrinney said that while the government does not yet have a specific funding proposal for virtual classrooms or conferences, he believes that more investments in digital learning would be needed.
“The question is, how much do we invest in education and how much are we going to use the resources that we have?”
“I think it’s very important to invest and to get the funding.
“It’s a very big challenge and a very challenging one, but we have to find the money to do it.””
