Video: Why B.C. Teachers Are Angry
As you can imagine, any amusing video spoofing the B.C. Liberal government's approach to teacher negotiations is going to be a hit with teachers.
This one, which is being passed around over Twitter, was posted on YouTube yesterday.
It was written by and stars Andy Nez. The audio recording is by Jeff Unruh and the film was directed and edited by Jason Simpson.
Meanwhile, the Campbell River School District has cancelled summer school in response to the teachers strike.
The superintendent, Thomas G.S. Longridge, revealed this in a statement posted on the district's website.
"Yesterday we received information that the teachers union will be continuing their strike action into July 2014, and that all sites where Summer School is being taught will be picketed," Longridge wrote. "Given this situation, School District 72 has decided not to provide Summer School Programs this year."
Any parents who've paid a cash deposit for textbooks will get their money back "once school commences in September".
