On Wednesday the premier of BC chastised the teachers' union and urged its members to cast aside its strike action on Wednesday, inciting a defensive response from teachers' federation.
Christy Clark stood beside her education minister and outlined her view of the steps required to get the situation rolling towards resolution in what was her first public address about the brewing dispute since the strike indefinitely shuttered schools.
Teachers must suspend the strike while the two sides negotiate, so that children can immediately start their school year, and the union must alter and introduce a "reasonable" proposal at the bargaining table, she said.
What do you think? Should the teachers suspend the strike?
