4:30: B.C. Premier Christy Clark offers a plan for 10 years of labour peace to the province's teachers unions. BC Teachers Federation's response, two thumbs down. The Province columnist Jon Ferry sees Clark's plan as "the latest in a series of Hail Mary passes by a desperate, gaffe-prone, government." Is it possible for provincial governments to not have constant rows with teachers unions?
Guest: John Ferry.
4:45: Ontario has a new Premier-elect. Kathleen Wynne, an openly gay woman, was selected on the third ballot and told delegates to the party convention to prepare for an election. An Ontario teachers federation president (elementary school teachers) is reaching out to Wynne. If Wynne can't deliver a believable message to voters and the Conservatives Tim Hudak continues to fumble his way along, is an NDP government in the cards for Ontario (and soon)?
