Admiration expressed for student’s strike stand

Ship sails on Liberal back to work legislation

To the Expositor:

Mr. Chapman, I applaud your standing up for fellow students and taking a stand (‘Student feels back to work legislation unfair,’ May 27, page 4). This is clear indication that our future is in good hands having students, such as yourself, step forward and speaking out.

Please do not read this as support or in opposition to your efforts, but in admiration of you taking your place in your community on behalf of your fellow students and sharing. I only point out that the Government of Ontario, not the Rainbow Board, has chosen to call this legislation.

The Protecting the School Year Act was a Liberal Government of Ontario action. I hear you saying clearly, “that ship has sailed.”
