This is why teachers in BC are on strike.

I find most people in our community understand that we’re out for a reason and they are *very* supportive: bringing us food, coffee, waving, honking, etc.

Occasionally people shout “Get back to work, you lazy SOBS!” (Not many- about one or two a day) We are sorry the education system was able to teach these people neither  how important it is to research an issue before you articulate an opinion, nor how important it is for people to stand up for themselves against illegal actions from their government.   We’ll stand up for the kids of even those uninformed people.

For details, here is a very entertaining and accurate presentation about why every working person in BC needs to be alarmed about this government, why teachers voted in such numbers to walk.  If they can do this to the teachers, they can do it to you.




I am the BCTF.

    I hope you get justice Shawn. No Government should be allowed to ride slipshod over its people and its law.

  3. You have voter apathy too? I guess we get the governments we deserve who seem to do just what they want….. Hope you get a resolution soon.

    • Teacher turn out was VERY high and the vote to strike was 86%- significantly more than the 46% of the general population who voted in the governing Liberal party.

  4. I hope you guys win and that justice will be served.
