Saying Stephen Lecce has created a ”toxic relationship” with teachers and education workers, the opposition leader feels it’s time for him to go.
NDP Leader Andrea Horwath thinks it’s time for the government to replace him with someone else.
”It’s time for the premier to hit the reset button,” Horwath continued.
”He has been creating a bad scenario at the bargaining table.  He’s dug in and apparently is not prepared to move whatsoever when it comes to the impasse that we now see,” said Horwath.
The Premier’s office responded with a brief statement.
”We will not be replacing Minister Lecce.” 
Meanwhile, the weekly strategy panel on Zoomer Radio’s ”Fight Back” with Libby Znaimer, weighed in on the dispute with Karen Stintz and Charles Bird pointing out it’s reaching a tipping point.
Stintz says the ripple effect is now more acutely being felt, and believes that this is going to come to a point in the next two or three weeks where it will be solved, one way or another.
Bird also thinks the longer this goes on, the worse it is for the Ford government.
As for potentially legislating teachers back-to-work, Stintz feels at this stage it would be a big mistake for the government.
