As the two sides of the B.C. teachers' strike continue to hunker down with a mediator, Mother Nature appears to be making a statement.
Teachers on the picket line outside Queen Elizabeth Secondary School in Surrey got caught in a sudden and very strong windstorm on Sept. 10.
A video posted to YouTube shows the "mini tornado" whipping up papers and tossing picket signs into the air as teachers run for cover.
Insert your own metaphor here.
Since the weekend, the B.C. Teachers' Federation and their employer have been in negotiations behind closed doors with mediator Vince Ready. The discussions went into the wee hours on Saturday and Sunday, leading many to hope for some movement in the months-long contract dispute.
