Teachers have a right to refuse unsafe work but they should be put on UI like everyone else. They refuse and they go home with 100% pay, how come? Probably lazy ones who don’t want to work. They should educate themselves on the virus and everyone will get it. They are teachers you probably don’t want teaching your kids anyway.

The School system is done anyway. And their are plenty of teachers who disagree with this BS that are organizing and breaking away from the current school system willing and happy to work without having to abuse children with masks and mandates. As for the rest go see your unions Fire them. Maybe we could sit them down and try and explain what's going on. Not the fear mongering shit they've been force fed.

Get the teachers n95 masks. Gowns. Faceshields and they will be fine. If they are forced to get the 3 doses they will definitely be fine. Are the Teachers vaxed? If so what's their problem. Greed + laziness Let us stay home, do nothing and still get paid We need this now! ⚠️The Timeline of COVID-19⚠️ MUST WATCH‼️ Does experimental vaccines work with Covid ?! Only truth can end the pandemic ! CCPLiedPeopleDied CCP≠CHINESE CCPVirus

Perhaps you should start by educating the students about the dangers of COVID 🤷‍♀️ 🤔 😳 Okurrrr them teachers material gorlsss The same teachers who'd go on strike all the time, especially before final exams? Teachers can take a hike then. It's beyond ridiculous at this point. EnoughIsEnough Teachers have gone from heroes to zeros right in front of our eyes. How can these people which are entrusted with educating our youth be so ill informed? It’s time to move on and stop mistreating our children.

If they're scared of the students, it's not the job for them. I remember a time when if you didn't listen to your teacher you were sent home. And this is what fear based media and too much information without facts has done to the human brain in 2 years.. 🗑 🚮 resign

Garbage reporting. The teachers just prefer to stay home. Toronto protest today Is that all you can report on is covid? Seems to me there's some other stuff going on around maybe you might want to take a look at it, it's called Ukraine we have Canadian troops there yeah I know what are they doing there right? Maybe you should check it out?

Lazy teachers I'm more concerned for the mental health of our youth. They're not doing 'fine'. Even the students know better than the teachers. They're awake. Maybe the teachers should too. Just an excuse not to work. Their union should set them straight. Good. Teachers deserve better. WearAMask It's a teachers health & their job........and it's the kids education & their health. What's the common denominator here folks, they should both work towards? Wear the GD mask!

Aren’t they just following the provincial mandate? prof_nch Where's story on this? Didnt see in run down

These people are always complaining. Get a new job. Lots of teachers who would live to work with children. Sorry excuse of people. If ur vax doesn't keep u safe it doesn't work don't blame ANYONE ELSE !! Lol for something that by all accounts vaxxed or unvaxxed is like a cold. Get off your high horse.

So where’s the story set out in the tweet? kids have more balls than the adults Good for the teachers. You deserve to be safe! BC's mask mandate for schools is anything but. It allows for'exemptions'&any parent can claim a 'exemption'for their child w/out having to furnish medical evidence,documentation,or details.BC's mask mandate is a green light you can drive school buses full of anti-maskers through

Quick question, has anybody seen anything on Canadian MSM about Britain for three days repealed all covid mandates? No forced vaxxing, mask wearing and told to get off their asses and get to their place of employment and not work from home anymore? وكالة أعماق: مشاهد حصلت عليها 'أعماق' تظهر عشرات القتلى من عناصر الـPKK بهجوم مقاتلي الدولة الإسلامية على سجن 'غويران' في الحسكة 22/01/2022 برد_الشتاء

Then get a different job Go to work like everyone else. Sorry, you're not that special.

why are we at war over masks? The reasons why many Americans refuse to wear masks Masks do fuck all. Get back to work. Wrong link?
