As Ontario's 45,000 Catholic teachers hit picket lines Tuesday, there were calls for Premier Doug Ford to fire Education Minister Stephen Lecce for "poisoning" relations with educators.

The minister also took the heat from the Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario for a breakdown in talks after three days of negotiations last week.

ETFO president Sam Hammond, whose members will hold two strikes this week in each board — including a province-wide strike Thursday — blamed Lecce for the fact that talks with his union ended abruptly on Friday night.
