Teachers’ strike looks like a long one

It looks like the teachers’ strike is not going to be settled soon. On Thursday morning, the education minister said the two sides were further apart than a week ago, and the government has an obligation to balance the budget. That same day, the teachers’ union called on the government to appoint a mediator. No end in sight. Here on Haida Gwaii, teachers and supporters are on the picket line at GM Dawson in Masset, as well as other schools and the board office. br />
