Teacher Union Enters Partisan Politics

From National Post


Call it what you will. For the 33% of union delegates that voted against the measure, it’s a compulsory political donation to a cause that they might not personally support. Further, it cannot be assumed that those teachers who choose to serve as conference delegates are reflective of the rank-and-file teachers they represent. This might be defensible if teachers’ membership in the union was voluntary. It isn’t. Those who wish to pursue the high calling of educating the province’s youth are in effect being forced to subsidize a political campaign if they wish to remain in their profession.


Funny Mr. Ryan has no problem almost copying verbatim the Ontario Liberal party line. Even going as far to use similar rhetoric as prominent Ontario Cabinet ministers. This election the Conservative grassroots more than ever have to dispel the myths and misperceptions spread by  Liberal friendly third parties.
