As of this school morning more than 12,000 faculty members of Ontario's Community Colleges are on strike.
I remember September of 1984: The same thing happened. I had been a student for a few weeks when suddenly, but not without warning, I had the day off. That strike went on for four weeks.
The concern at the time was that our school year would have to be extended in order to make up for lost time. The May finish would drop us students late into the summer job pool. Things worked out for me, but it was a bit of a stressful time.
When you're paying money for school you don't want any complications.
