High school teachers in our area took the circle today in Kapuskasing. Members of the Ontario Secondary School Teachers Federation walked with placard signs around the circle as part of their one-day strike. During their rally they also stopped at Mushkegowuk-James Bay MPP Guy Bourgoin’s office asking for his support.

The one-day strike cancelled school for public elementary and high school students, as well as those with the French catholic board. Students from the English Catholic and the French Public Boards were in class as none of the unionized workers are employed at those schools.
