VANCOUVER - British Columbians are more likely to trust locally elected school boards than the provincial government when it comes to decisions on school services, a new survey has found.

A new Ipsos Reid survey conducted on behalf of the Canadian Union of Public Employees shows that British Columbians oppose privatization of public school services such as custodial, maintenance or other services.

 When asked, two thirds (67%) of British Columbians say they are opposed to privatization of these school services, with almost half (47%) saying they are strongly opposed.
