    950,000 kids out of school this week.
    Could that cost the province up to $50 million?

    Paying families for childcare is not the answer, if for no other reason that there aren't sufficient daycare spots available to take all these kids in. That's why the solution lies in either allowing competition in the education sector (headcount funding) or moving to a mandatory interest arbitration model (like so many other essential public services).

    So now it's about the money and not the fact that the teacher's union is keeping kids out of school?

    Your hypocrisy is hard to follow.

    No, now its about Ford wasting taxpayers money instead of negotiating and settling months ago, as he should have.

    He wanted to start negotiations months ago (last April/May) and the unions refused. Wonder why? Care to enlighten us on your theory?

    He didn't want to negotiate, he said 'this is all I'm giving you' and then walked away thinking they'd cave in.
    That's not negotiating.

    Your perception of reality is skewed.
    He wanted to start the negotiations back then and the teachers refused. Then the teachers waited until the school year started to provide a counter offer...this time they could use students as bargaining chips.
    If you are so blind to that tactic then you are lost.

    Ignoring the realities of the provinces finances is not negotiating
