Community News - Local Public Elementary Teachers Strike

KINGSTON, Ont. (21/12/2012) -- "Hey, hey, ho, ho, Bill-one fifteen has got to go", could be heard up and down Princess Street in Kingston around noon on Thursday, Dec. 21, 2012.  Over 200 local public elementary teachers from the Limestone District School Board and their supporters gathered outside M.P.P John Gerretsen's office as part of the rotating one-day protests against the Ontario Government's Bill 115, which gives the provincial government to ability to block strikes, as well as freezes teacher wages and reduce the number of available sick days.  Photos by Julia McKay
