    ‘Shady’ Anti-Teachers’ Union Ads Might Break Election Rules: Taras Natyshak

    The ads, placed by a group called “Vaughan Working Families,” accuse teachers’ unions of using kids as pawns.

    By Emma Paling

    TORONTO — The provincial NDP is calling on Elections Ontario to investigate “shady” advertisements that appeared in major newspapers over the weekend.

    “There’s something concerning here,” NDP MPP Taras Natyshak told reporters at Queen’s Park Monday.

    Full-pagers in Star & G&M. Maybe we should ask @SFLecce who’s behind these. Using the moniker of “Working Fams”. Which fams are those, Stephen? The super-rich ones that contribute the max amount they can every yr to your riding assoc?

    178 people are talking about this

    “Whoever placed this advertisement had the full intention of causing more chaos ... This does nothing to de-escalate any of the tensions that might exist at the bargaining table. In fact, it escalates the tensions.”

    The ads, placed by a mysterious group called “Vaughan Working Families,” show a frowning woman holding a report card graded with a “F” and the message: “Teachers’ Union leaders are risking student success. Children are not pawns.”

    All of Ontario’s major teachers’ unions are engaged in rotating strikes or work-to-rule campaigns amidst contentious contract negotiations with the government.

    Natyshak, who serves as his party’s ethics critic, alleges the ads break election financing rules because voters in two Ottawa ridings are set to elect new MPPs in byelections on Feb. 27. Any groups that conduct political advertising during election periods are subject to Elections Ontario rules.

    Natyshak said there is no evidence to link the ads to the government at this time, but that the ads have “all the hallmarks of a Doug Ford smear campaign.”

    Elections Ontario would not confirm whether or not it would investigate the matter, but said that any third party that spends more than $500 on political ads during a by-election campaign must register.

    “Political advertising also includes advertising with respect to an issue of public policy during an election for which one or more registered political parties or candidates may also have taken a position,” spokesperson Lisa Camps said by email.

    Teacher who retired 2 years ago is receiving in excess 5000 a month in retirement. A teacher who retires in 12 years will recive close to 7000 a month in retirement.

    How are these poor folks supposed to live in Canada on a poverty stipend.

    These people are so overworked and under paid.

    Slave wages, summers off, every single stat holiday and a pittance for a pension. When will public servants get justice.

    Didn’t you get a good deal on the Russian collusion and Ukraine stories?

    Which brings me to the next question: what’s next?

    And if the rest of us put 12% of our salary into a well managed fund with massive buying power, we would be too. I was hoping that the proposed Ontario pension plan would be along those lines.

    Maybe you can send me 40% of your income so I can. Why? Because I think I deserve that and don't want to earn it on my own.

    Some or many retired teachers actually can afford to live in Florida, maybe even year-round in which case they don't pay Canadian taxes.

    Teachers are spoiled brats and they are teaching our kids to be spoiled brats.

    Seems it's not just theory. Paid for by a Ford appointee.

    If a kid is a spoiled brat, it is solely the fault of the parent(s).
    Your child, your responsibility. Full stop.

    no
    That mess was written by the Huffington Post
    They could not possibly give any consideration to anyone paying taxes or with kids who should be attending school.
    They could not possibly give any consideration the provinces ever growing unmanageable debt load and continuous deficts.
    Simply because they believe a union has the right to demand a 2% raise of $90K per year and a unions rights must outweigh and trump common sense and anyone's expectations te provinces finances be managed in a responsible manner.

    And part of that responsibility is demanding your kids are not saddled with way more than $350 B in provincial debt when they start their career
    Full stop
