Downtown Toronto is packed with striking teachers today after elementary teachers went on strike across the province.

The striking teachers have staged a march down Front Street, which is where Ontario’s Ministry of Education is located.  Over one thousand teachers gathered outside the ministry—holding advocacy signs and chanting pro-teacher slogans.

Nearly 83,000 teachers are on strike today throughout Ontario, leaving nearly 1 million students out of school. This latest round of strikes follows a cut-off of negations between Doug Ford’s Ontario government and the teacher’s unions.

The OSSTF released a statement last week after a failed round of negotiations, stating that “OSSTF/FEESO members are not the only ones who understand the enormity of the damage that will ensue if this government’s education agenda is allowed to unfold.”

In response to these claims, Ontario’s minister of education Stephen Lecce,  said that “after fulfilling their request through the mediator, a Ministry of Labour mediator, they suggested it was insufficient, so I think there’s a moving sort of benchmark of success.”
