No Word if Wynne Can Win Back Extra Curricular Activities

There's no word yet on whether Ontario's incoming premier can work out a way to get extra-curricular activities back into public schools. Kathleen Wynne raised the issue with union leaders representing public school teachers at a meeting last night but says today that no agreement has been reached and more conversation is needed. Members of the public elementary and secondary teachers' unions are still upset that the Liberal government imposed contracts on them and many have refused to run after-class clubs and sports in protest. Wynne -- a former education minister -- reached out to the teachers during her leadership campaign but made it clear she will not rip up the contracts imposed on January 1st.
