Apparently Ontario's finances are in such great shape that Premier Kathleen Wynne can afford to open up the spending spigots to buy peace with Ontario's teacher unions in time for next year's provincial election.
Last year, Wynne said she was prepared to loosen the government's purse strings for all public sector workers, presumably because the Liberals have done such a great job of financial management.
As reported by the Toronto Sun's Sue-Ann Levy, documents obtained by the Sun indicate the model, two-year contract extension Wynne is offering teachers to ensure labour peace safely beyond the spring, 2018 Ontario election, include a 4% pay hike, a 4$ annual hike in benefits and a 0.5$ lump sum payment for "supplies".
