Bill 178, which put an end to a five-week-old job action by college instructors and mandated binding mediation-arbitration, was approved by Liberals and Progressive Conservatives (opposed by the NDP). The Toronto Sun would later report that “about 27,500 of the roughly 250,000 full-time students decided to withdraw and receive a tuition refund rather than finishing their semester on a condensed timeline.” Other students reportedly would have to work quite hard to survive the first term of their school year once classes resumed. On November 20, 2017, college instructors returned to work. On The Live Drive program (NewsTalk 1290AM CJBK, London, Ontario) with host Andy Oudman, Paul McKeever, leader, Freedom Party of Ontario, was interviewed about the the problem of college strikes that occur during the school year.

For immediate release


An Open Letter to the People of Ontario from FP leader Paul McKeever
