Is this wonderful, or what:

Quote:
Students at 10 West Island high schools held a "walkout" this morning in support of their teachers during contract negotiations with the provincial government. [...]

All of the schools are part of the Lester B. Pearson School Board.

Bradley Schapp, a student at John Rennie High School and one of the student organizers of the walkout, told CBC Montreal's Daybreak that teachers need support.

"We just want to show that we're there for the teachers and that they are not alone fighting against this," said Schapp.

Note: These are all English-language schools.
