As certain as I am of being even uglier when wearing a toque, Ontario’s teachers have been playing us for dupes for as long as I can remember.

And that’s a significantly long time.

I have been working solely for Sun Media, the Toronto Sun in particular, since 1974 — which is 46 years and counting.

And those years include 10,080.7 work weeks news-watching Ontario’s elementary and secondary school teachers and their unions repeatedly use the same faux “woe-is-me” rhetoric of being underpaid and underappreciated.
