"The message to the unions is, the party's over with the taxpayers' money," said Premier Doug Ford as thousands of striking teachers protested outside Queen's Park on Thursday.

"Pack your bags and get back into the classroom," said Ford, noting the Progressive Conservatives have caved to the unions' demands on some key sticking points.

"This comes down to compensation and benefits," he said, adding the Tories agreed to make e-learning optional and backed off on increasing average high school class sizes to 25 students.
