Ontario school teachers stage one-day walkout

More than 35,000 public school teachers launched a single-day strike in the Canadian province of Ontario in protest against a law that “freezes” their salaries and cuts benefits.

Ontario Governor Dalton McGuinty argues that the move is necessary to reduce the province’s budget deficit amounting to $15 billion.
