Ads sponsored by mystery organization appear in Toronto newspapers slamming teachers' unions - 2020-02-03
TORONTO -- Full-page advertisements against striking teachers' unions appeared in major publications Saturday after they were submitted by an organization that has no website, no contact information or spokesperson.
All four major teachers' unions in Ontario have been engaged in escalating job actions in recent weeks as bargaining talks with the government have stalled.
The advertisements, from a group calling itself Vaughan Working Families, were on the pages of the Toronto Star, the National Post and The Globe and Mail on Saturday. The ads varied slightly in each newspaper but they all delivered a similar message.
