That the BCCPAC lobby on behalf of all British Columbia students who reside in an earthquake zone to insure that all schools built from this point on be built to withstand an earthquake that BC could expect. If schools are undergoing major renovation, structural upgrading for earthquake preparedness should be part of the renovation. The Ministry of Education should be held accountable for these upgrades. Such upgrades should have an enhancement of the seismic safety factor of 50% which is currently the requirement for public buildings such as fire halls.
