Local Educators Mark in the Park


Local teachers and support staff spent a few hours demonstrating in the park after school to raise awareness around current issues in the sector. The mark in the park event took place at the foot of Ouellette Avenue on Riverside Drive.

Educators were raising awareness that collective bargaining rights have yet to be restored, that we put students first when we stand up for the sector and for them as future workers, that educators will not be bullied by politicians, and that voluntary activities are just that: voluntary.

In addition to marking, speeches were made and flyers were handed out to the public.
