Postmedia has since been analyzing that data to construct a more complete picture of class sizes across the province. Super-sized classes The trend toward ballooning classes in Edmonton, Red Deer and Calgary holds true provincewide. Both the number and proportion of large classes have grown with time, according to the data. Infor example, just one per cent of the classes had 35 or more children registered. Byit had jumped to 2. In the school year the most recent year that statistics are available2.
Also inthere were two and a half times more classes with 40 or more kids compared to 13 years earlier. The proportion of core classes with 35 or more kids increased more than three and a half times over the 14 years, and the proportion of classes with 40 or more students is nearly six times larger than it was 14 years ago.

Some of these measures peaked between and and have since decreased slightly when analyzed provincewide. Large groups are not limited to high schools. Despite the commission recommendation of 17 children in early elementary classes, the data listed K-3 classes with more than 30 students in the school year. Although many of the classes were physical education or music, some were not. Teachers also have said their classes are becoming more complex, with growing numbers of English language learners and students with disabilities.
Although the online data does not include the numbers of students with exceptional needs, Alberta Education provided those numbers for the year period. Although some schools are moving away from applying codes to students with disabilities, the ratio of coded students to classes has grown steadily during that time.

Tracking dollars Eggen says the trends concern him — particularly in the early grades, where research says smaller class size can have the most positive effect on learning.
Despite government instructions in to channel class-size reduction dollars solely to early elementary grades and high school trades, more K-3 classes exceed guidelines than in any other grade group.

A challenge, Eggen said, was the 22 per cent enrolment growth in Alberta public and charter schools since Some districts are recording more than two per cent growth per year, and some as high as five or six per cent, he said.
Manitoba Manitoba has also fought against pricing carbon. Under a plan imposed on the province by the federal government, industrial facilities emitting more than 50, tonnes of carbon dioxide-equivalent per year will be taxed starting next January. Companies emitting between 10, and 50, tonnes will be able to opt into the system as well.
Fossil fuels will also be part of the plan, with gasoline being taxed to the tune of 4.
The cap-and-trade system was scrapped over the summer as the government of Premier Doug Ford took office. With no other plan in place, the federal government announced Tuesday that it will put in place a plan similar to the ones it is imposing in Manitoba and Saskatchewan, with a carbon tax for large industrial emitters and an initial gasoline tax of 4.
Industrial, electricity and fossil fuel companies which emit more than 25, tonnes of carbon dioxide-equivalent chemicals must take part in the cap-and-trade market.
Companies see slight annual reductions in their cap-and-trade allowances, which pushes the province as a whole toward its emissions reduction targets. Revenues from the system are put toward various measures to help the province reduce carbon emissions and adapt to climate change. The province aims to have its total emissions 20 per cent below where they were in byand New Brunswick The fourth province not to develop a carbon pricing scheme which meets the federal requirements, New Brunswick will instead be subjected to the federal system.
Like in Ontario, Manitoba and Saskatchewan, New Brunswick will see industrial polluters start paying into the system next January and taxes on fossil fuels take effect next April. Gasoline will see a new tax of 4. The province said Tuesday that it had entered into an agreement with the feds on a plan that would meet P.
The plan involves a four-cents-per-litre surcharge on gasoline and diesel, which the provincial government says it is not in favour of and will offset by reducing its existing gas tax.
Unlike in most other provinces, home heating fuels in P. Nova Scotia Nova Scotia will be implementing a cap-and-trade program as of Jan. Companies will be given allowances to emit carbon dioxide-equivalents to a certain level, and will be able to buy and sell credits to pollute above that level. Each year, the total number of allowances in the province will decrease to help push Nova Scotia toward its overall emissions reduction goals.
How carbon pricing will work, province by province
The province estimates that the program will add about one cent per litre to the price of gasoline and about one per cent to electricity rates. Newfoundland and Labrador The government of Newfoundland and Labrador released details of its carbon pricing plan on Tuesday. The plan has the approval of the federal government. Under the plan, gasoline will be taxed at 4. Diesel fuel will also be taxed, but home heating fuels will not.
