INSIDE THE VILLAGE: Doug Ford's war on education workers

Episode 23 of the podcast: Ontario has ordered CUPE education workers back on the job, with threats of hefty fines if they don't comply. The union vows to strike anyway. Buckle up for a long, nasty fight

Welcome back to Inside the Village, a one-of-a-kind podcast where all news is local — and no topic is off-limits.

On the latest episode, we explore the escalating labour war between the Ford government and 55,000 of Ontario's education workers, including librarians, secretaries and custodians.

Paul Gray, an associate professor of labour studies at Brock University, helps us make sense of the political rhetoric on both sides, and what it all means for students and their frustrated parents.

Also on the program: a big welcome to the latest addition to our Village,
