Premier hopeful for return of extra curricular activities
Premier Kathleen Wynne hopeful extra curriculars are set to resume in high schools, and elementary schools, across the province.
Comes after the Ontario Secondary School Teachers Federation announced late Friday it was lifting the ban on extra curricular activities.
That action was sparked by the Liberals' move to impose contracts that froze the wages of most teachers.
Some teachers have said they won't resume supervising extracurricular activities because of the two-year contracts the government imposed.
However, Premier Kathleen Wynne predicts most will return to the sports and clubs they ran voluntarily for years.
She says the government did not make any concessions to get teachers to return to coaching and other after school volunteer work.
The OSSTF has a media conference set for Monday morning to detail the announcement.
