Great news, teachers! You’re getting a raise. Why? Well, I suppose it’s because Ontario’s Liberal government recognizes all of the hard work that you do. Certainly, that’s it. Also, apropos of nothing, have you heard that Liberal leader Justin Trudeau has promised teachers a new tax credit of up to $1000 spent on out-of-pocket expenses? Has Stephen Harper — or Tom Mulcair, for that matter — offered anything remotely comparable? No? Oh, well; enjoy your raise, courtesy Ontario’s Liberal government.
