As MPPs return to the legislature Tuesday after a 10-week winter break, it doesn't take a soothsaying woodchuck to predict it could be a hot time for Ford's Progressive Conservative government.

Ontario is gripped by education strife with all public elementary, secondary, Catholic, and French-language schools closed this Friday for a one-day general strike after weeks of rotating walkouts.

Teachers and parent activists are expected to protest en masse at the Conservatives' annual policy convention next weekend in Niagara Falls.
