Demands defy logic

Kevin Epp is dismayed at the negative reaction to the “teach only” phase of their job action (recent letters to the editor). Well Kev, I am also dismayed and downright flabbergasted as to why the citizens of this province have to endure repeated disruptions as a result of nonsensical demands of teacher unions.

Well Kev, I am also dismayed and downright flabbergasted as to why the citizens of this province have to endure repeated disruptions as a result of nonsensical demands of teacher unions. Come on now, a 20 per cent salary increase? Two weeks paid leave to attend someone’s funeral? Give your head a shake! Where is the logic in laying such ridiculous proposals on the table. Is this a new negotiating strategy to gain attention?

If you cannot grasp the concept of zero, nada, zip funds left in the budget, you ought to seek out a new profession. How about a politician? You could then work to reinstate your perceived entitlements and lost rights.
