To all those decrying…
… the ONE day walkout by elementary teachers today.
Suck it up.
This is democracy in action, regardless of whether or not you believe that teachers (or anyone else for that matter) should have the right to strike. Under the current law, they DO have that right. This. Is. A. Fact. Look it up.
Go ahead, my conservative friends, knock that one down!
And it is only ONE day! I remember that back in 1982ish my brother having to move way from home to complete his Grade 13 because the West Parry Sound School Board teachers struck for MONTHS!
As I am typing this (oh, btw, I’m home with the kids today – and don’t begrudge the teachers one bit), I am listening to a Barrhaven mother being interviewed on CBC who is expressing her worry about her children having to be exposed to picket lines!
I’m serious! She is worried about her kids being exposed to democracy!
Of course, she is from Barrhaven… 🙂
