Niagara Falls MPP skips vote on controversial teacher's bill
A Niagara Falls MPP failed to show up for the final vote on Bill 115, the controversial legislation imposing a contract on teachers.
Kim Craitor made headlines last month after attending a rally by teachers sporting a large, orange, rectangular button on his lapel that read "Respect Teachers, Respect Collective Bargaining".
Speaking with 610 CKTB's Tom McConnell, Craitor said he was asked by "a number of people" to join the rally. The MPP has a personal policy of always dropping in on demonstrations, whether they are for or against the government.
At the time, Craitor admitted to having difficulty with the bill but wouldn't say whether he would vote for or against it.
He would only say at the time, I'll know when the time comes, its not an easy decision.
