Government is like a deadbeat spouse

Re: “Students’ walkouts draw small crowds,” June 5. With respect to the student walkout, and its comparison of the teacher/ government fight to the fight between two divorcing parents.

Re: “Students’ walkouts draw small crowds,” June 5.

With respect to the student walkout, and its comparison of the teacher/ government fight to the fight between two divorcing parents. To me, a more realistic comparison is this: The government is the deadbeat spouse, the teachers are the spouse asserting his/her rights and his/her children’s rights, with full backing of the Supreme Court of B.C.

The teachers and the government are far from being different faces of the same coin.
