Before we debate, I would like to define Bill 115. The Bill 115 act or the Putting Students first Act, is an act passed by the Legislative Assembly of Ontario. The main resolution is for the provincial government to set rules that local school boards must adhere to when negotiating with local unions, and allow the provincial government to impose a collective agreement on the board, employee bargaining agent and the employees of the board represented by the employee bargaining agent if negotiations were not completed by December 31, 2012. This bill also limits the legality of teachers' unions and support staff going on strike. I accept your challenge and you may begin in round 2.
Im not complete biased about bill 115, although it helps clear off the debt, which I find good, its not completely helpful for people. Students lose extra curriculars and teachers lose the fundamental right to collective bargaining. Its affecting everyone involved in it negatively, but the government.
