ONTARIO VS CUPE – OCTOBER 3 2019

Libby Znaimer is joined by Ontario Minister of Education Stephen Lecce. She is then joined by Michael Diamond, Conservative strategist & Founding Principal of Upstream Strategy Group and Kim Wright, Principal of Wright Strategies.

Education workers in Ontario, 55,000 of them, are poised to strike on Monday if they do not reach a contract deal by then. The strike could shut down classes for many of the two million students in the school system. It also has the potential of affecting the course of the federal election.This strike date just happens to coincide with the big English language debate.
