Liberal MPP and leadership candidate Michael Coteau is urging Premier Doug Ford to recall the legislature immediately in the "public interest" as his Progressive Conservative government gets down to the crunch in contract talks with education unions.

"It is critical the legislature has the opportunity to scrutinize your government's alarming policies — actions that stand in diametric opposition to your express promise to the people…that 'not one single teacher is going to lose their job," Coteau (Don Valley East) wrote Friday in a letter to Ford.

The two-page missive follows a Thursday report from Ontario's independent Financial Accountability Office on that the province will have 10,000 fewer teaching positions over the next five years as Ford's government increases class sizes and forces high school students to take more courses online.
