“It was January 26th, 2013. Thousands of ETT members descended upon Maple leaf Gardens to protest Bill 115. We were to later learn that Kathleen Wynne would be our new Premier.

Despite depreciating working conditions, simmering school climates, and letters of discipline, you see smiles and happiness in the crowd. Clearly, teachers felt good by being immersed in this energy.

I took this in black and white because for me, it was a historic day.”
