  B.C. RCMP orders immediate spending cuts amid predicted $10.7M shortfall The B.C. RCMP is in a financial hole, according to an internal email sent to staff. The police agency is forecasting a $10.7 million deficit and says it is moving to immediately cut spending in order to deal with the expected shortfall.That money will be cut from the more than $450-million RCMP provincial policing budget that funds rural detachments and special units such as the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team and the anti-gang Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit.

If you're curious how exactly cutting CDC's funding will affect parents and their kids , here are just four ways. The Obama Administration created the Prevention and Public Health Fund in order to set aside monies for prevention and intervention programs that would ultimately lower healthcare costs.

Any public budget release comes loaded with numbers that are difficult to conceptualize.

It's hard to visualize what a $32 million funding cut means, or what schools might look like with 300 less temporary teachers.

But the impacts of those cuts began to sink in this week, when Calgary parents arrived at schools and learned how the cuts would affect their kids.

"I just found out that my son's Grade 1 teacher… is not coming back in January," said Katie Gibson, whose six-year-old son attends Langevin School. "It's just hard, because he's finally thriving and now he has to go through a teacher change."

Gibson said she didn't blame the Calgary Board of Education (CBE) for the cuts.

The news of the job eliminations came the same day students rallied outside the Alberta legislature against UCP cuts they say are getting in the way of their education.

Parents greatly affect their children's behavior. Antisocial children learn their behavior from their parents ' examples, according to research done by the University of Chicago When a parent elects to use physical punishment, such as spanking, it does not teach the child how to change his behavior.

"I think the CBE is working with what they were given, and they were given a drastic cut," she said.

Jennifer Graham, who also has a child at Langevin School, also lays blame for the cuts at the feet of the provincial government.

"They're hurting families with these cuts to education and they need to take a long look at who they are supporting and who they aren't in this province," she said.

Nicole Bracko has three children who all attend Wildwood Elementary, and though the circumstances are still unclear, parents have been told students will be impacted.

"We're worried. It's obviously not a good thing for the kids," Bracko said.

Though Bracko doesn't know how the cuts will impact her kids yet, she said she is feeling anxious.

"If they're in overcrowded classrooms and the teachers are stretched too thin and the students who need extra help aren't getting it, it's going to affect everybody," she said. "The teachers are already so stressed and overwhelmed, so it's just going to get even worse."

She said the looming uncertainty has led her family to consider moving to British Columbia.

"We've started to wonder if it's best for the kids to stay in this province," she said.

On Wednesday, Alberta Education Minister Adriana LaGrange said she was ordering a independent financial audit and governance review of the CBE, accusing the public school board of "reckless" misspending.

In a statement issued in response, CBE officials said they were confident in their "sound financial and governance practices."

The CBE said its 300 temporary teacher contracts will end as of Jan. 2, and teachers will be placed on the substitute roster.
