So much for promises. First Premier Doug Ford promised no public service workers would lose their jobs under his government. Then it became no "front-line" worker.

Now it's looking like teachers, as front-line as they come, are not going to be included in Ford's fluid definition.

Education Minister Lisa Thompson and Ford keep insisting that no teachers will lose their jobs as a result of their plan to increase class sizes and eliminate (through attrition) 3,475 teaching positions over four years, but evidence is starting to contradict that.

School boards from Toronto to Guelph have already announced some 1,500 layoffs, with more to come.
