Today, we publish a video of Toronto teacher Janet Csontos, responding to Ontario Liberal premier Dalton McGuinty’s attack on Ontario teachers’ rights. Janet is a teacher at the Student School in Toronto, a member of the Ontario Secondary School Teachers Federation (OSSTF), and a supporter of Fightback magazine. Janet is speaking against McGuinty’s “Putting Students First” Act, at the Funeral for Collective Bargaining at Queen’s Park, organized by rank-and-file Ontario teachers. Filmed at Queen’s Park (Toronto) on 10 September 2012.
