CORRECTION:Chevron - Fuel Your School is a rip off. One DOLLAR donation per min 30 Litres or more (not pro-rated)

Is Vancouver's Non-Partisan Association (NPA) so desperate to win this election that LaPointe has called in a favour from his former employer, PostMedia, to write an editorial on the eve of voting?

Desperation?  They might just as well say that there's going to be a Head Tax, a Death Tax .....
Chevron funded program would benefit Vancouver schools - Vancouver Sun ....... Under the program designed for Vancouver, Chevron would donate $1 for every 30 litres of gas bought at local stations, up to $475,000, to My Class Needs, which is responsible for disbursing the money for projects the charity deems eligible without Chevron’s involvement in the selection.

CORRECT To:   "$1 donation per min 30 Litres or more ....."    

INCORRECT version:     "$1 for every 30 litres of gas ....."


Hyundai Touring Elantra   48 litres    $1
Mitsubishi Lancer              60 litres   $1,  not $2 by Vancouver Sun's reckoning

Cost Per Year; Fuel (litres) per year;  Max/ Min / once a month                   

Rolls-Royce  Ghost         $4033     2840 Litres      $94 / $47 /  $12
Porsche Panamera GTS   $3152     2220 Litres      $74 / $37 /  $12
Lexus  LS 460 AWD       $3238     2280 Litres      $76 / $38 /  $12
GMC Sierra                     $2740     2080 Litres      $69 / $34 /  $12
BMW X6 M                    $4033     2840 Litres      $94 / $47 /  $12

There's no way that the public may respond via a Letter to the Editor pleading for a retraction of the Error for it will come well after the election of School Trustees.

The ideologically-driven decision to reject Chevron’s Fuel Your School program denies Vancouver students resources they could have had to improve their learning experience. We hope a newly-elected school board will quickly reverse it.  - Vancouver Sun  - Editor-in-Chief Harold Munro, issues & ideas editor Harvey Enchin, columnists and editorial writers Stephen Hume and Barbara Yaffe

North Vancouver is a participant in Chevron's Fuel Your School


28 cash STRAPPED schools stretching across North America:

Five Schools in British Columbia endorsed by Christy Crunch's Finance Minister de Jong

Let's see:

In North Vancouver (City/District) there are NINE Chevron Gas Stations.  How much gas is pumped from those nine from November 1st to the 30th that will generate enough funding that will make a difference to the education of our children?   Does Chevron state on their Customers printed gas receipts the ONE DOLLAR generosity?

Pink Sheet Fine Print Conditions:  Motorist must buy 30 OR more litres at a PARTICIPATING Chevron station and Chevron will donate ONE DOLLAR up to $565,000.   There is no list of Chevron gas stations who are participating. 

One Dollar

Then of course there's the Administration Fees on that ONE Dollar.  Is the money in a Trust account with all interest earned being rolled in, not out?

Teachers requesting funding for projects MUST be FULL TIME Employees

Eligible NOT Eligible

Eligibility Guidelines

School Eligibility Guidelines

Schools must be K-12 schools located in the participating School Districts of Burnaby (SD 41), Coquitlam (SD 43), North Vancouver (SD 44), West Vancouver (SD45) and Surrey (SD 36) and must receive majority of their operational funding from public sources to be eligible to participate.

This includes Long Term Provincial Resource Programs (PRP) and Alternate Programs, but does not include Independent Schools.

Which means, of course, that gas purchases that generates the $1 donation in one School District/Municipality may be used in another area.......

Since its launch in 2013, My Class Needs has helped over 200 classrooms across Canada fund their unique projects.

Chevron, an American corporate based company, should communicate with their subsidiary Chevron Canada who would have pointed out that the Five Named participant school districts are based solely in the province of British Columbia.  Metro Vancouver to be precise.
