Audio: Ontario Minister of Labour on York Strike

Fonseca dodges question on back-to-work legislation

I questioned Ontario’s Minister of Labour Peter Fonseca about the York University strike today in the halls of Queen’s Park.

The audio is below, but here’s the Coles Notes version. The government has no Plan B with the failure of mediation to end the dispute, instead hoping that time will eventually bring about a negotiated settlement.

I spoke to the Minister of Training, Colleges, and Universities John Milloy and the education critics for the two opposition parties. I’m presently working on those audio files and hope to put together a report shortly.
