Under a capital develop- ment program which she said could cost the NDP govern- ment million over five years, Eileen Dailly said B.C 's nine community colleges would be ''beefed up" and two or three new colleges would be added. She made the announcement in a speech to the opening of the Canadian Education Association (CEA) conference. Included in the cost of the development program would be acquisition of sites, buildings and equipment, the development of community college facilities to serve the Fraser Valley aad areas in the north and near the Alberta border as well as expansion of present college regions.
