The Bill Kelly Show Podcast:

Support staff in Ontario schools have overwhelmingly voted in favour of a strike should negotiations with the province and boards falter.

Of the 45,433 support staff who voted, 43,821 said they were in favour of job action — a 96.5 per cent approval rate.

No job action is planned at this point, and talks between the two sides continue this Thursday and Friday.

GUEST: Heather Scoffield, Ottawa Bureau Chief for The Toronto Star

Several years after Hockey Canada began using player registration fees to build a large financial reserve known as the National Equity Fund to cover sexual assault claims and other lawsuits, it channelled a significant portion of that money into a second multimillion-dollar fund for similar purposes.

Known as the Participants Legacy Trust Fund, the reserve was created by the organization and its members with more than $7.1-million from the National Equity Fund. The money was earmarked “for matters including but not limited to sexual abuse,” according to Hockey Canada documents obtained by The Globe and Mail.
