Education Rally in Chatham Today


A protest is planned at Chatham-Kent Leamington MPP Rick Nicholls Chatham office today.

A similar protest was held Monday, opposing cuts to education, with dozens of people caring OSSTF flags and banners made their voices heard outside of Nicholls’ Leamington office.

Nicholls has come under fire recently for comments made on social media, denouncing student and teacher protests. “Their signs, their shouting and chanting to a Premier and Government in authority over them is totally disrespectful,” the post stated. “That’s not how you get things done. Disrespect is what the teachers and their unions are teaching kids.”

Today’s rally at 11 Heritage Dr in Chatham begins at 3pm.
