Teachers’ strike

There’s no school today…the teachers are on strike.

Thousands of them converged on Province House last night to protest the contract legislation being debated by the MLAs and hundreds remained at Province House overnight. The Speaker of the legislature limited the number who could sit in the public gallery.

Police arrested a man who was harassing some of the teachers. The 40 year old man will be in court later on charges under the liquor control act.
