B.C. Teachers' Strike 2014: Raffi's Tweets To Christy Clark Say It All

Beloved children's entertainer Raffi Cavoukian has aimed some sharp criticism at B.C. Premier Christy Clark as the province's teachers' strike continues.

A longtime advocate for children's rights, the "Baby Beluga" singer fired back at Clark on Sunday after the premier's tweets that blamed teachers for the ongoing dispute.

Cavoukian founded the Centre for Child Honouring on his home of Salt Spring Island, an organization that promotes his philosophy on raising healthy and prosperous children.

He took to Twitter again on Monday to address the public education issue, this time also slamming Education Minister Peter Fassbender:

The teachers' strike began in June. Veteran mediator Vince Ready walked away from exploratory talks over the weekend, declaring that the two sides were too far apart to begin mediation.

There is no indication as to when classes will be back in session.
