Storm cancels strike

A strike by the Association des enseignantes et des enseignants franco-ontariens (AEFO) planned for Thursday has been cancelled because of the forecast snow storm.
“This cancellation has nothing to do with bowing down to the demands of the government and the school boards, and everything to do with ensuring AEFO members’ safety on picket lines. The effectiveness and safety of picket lines could also be compromised, such as icy sidewalks and unplowed sites which could result in unsafe picketing,” says the AEFO.
