Ontario Premier Doug Ford is linking a province-wide student protest over education reform to the influence of teachers' union "thugs."

Ford made the comments during an interview with the John Oakley Show on Global News Radio 640 Toronto on Thursday.

He said a lot of parents and students were disappointed by the protests, which saw high school students across the province walk out of class.

"This isn't about class sizes, gentlemen," he told a panel of guests on the show.

"This is strictly from the union thugs, as I call them, the teachers' union, one of the most powerful unions in the entire country. There's finally a government with a backbone that wants our kids to start learning math."
