Curling, Hockey Cancelled on First Day of Protest

On the first day of a teacher job action in protest of Ontario’s Bill 115, high school curling and high school hockey are the first sports to have official games cancelled.

Parents and guardians were informed last week that school teams will no longer be running in the Lambton-Kent District School Board, and across the province as of December 10, with no end date identified.

Monday, two boys curling, two girls curling, two boys hockey, and two girls hockey games were cancelled as the first impact of the job action, which aims to repeal Bill 115 and return collective bargaining rights to teachers, was felt.

Five schools, CKSS, Ridgetown, UCC, Lambton-Kent, and John McGregor saw games cancelled Monday. UCC’s schedule was impacted even though the local Catholic board is not involved in the job action.

In total, 48 league games, involving hockey, curling, volleyball, and basketball, will be cancelled this week.
