Bus driver shortages also exist in Windsor, Hamilton, Thunder Bay, Owen Sound, etc, etc

The gov't and @sflecce have been silent on helping bus consortia getting through this shortfall. So far the gov't re-opening plan has suggested parents find solutions from the private secton
Darn typo in the first tweet of the thread. It should say: “does not look like it is getting better anytime soon”

Math question. If the govt proudly announced they have provided $4million in funding for enhanced cleaning and that fund was JUST used to purchase hand sanitizer for classroom use how long will it last?
With ~2,000,000 students in public schools in Ontario that works out to $2/child.
In secondary the average class is funded at 23.5 students. So that works out to an extra $47/classroom for the entire year.
