Ontario teachers set to stage a joint walkout for Feb. 21

TORONTO—Schools across Ontario will be closed Feb. 21 as elementary, secondary, Catholic and French teachers banded together yesterday to announce a joint strike in a bid to ramp up pressure on Premier Doug Ford's government with contract negotiations at a near standstill.

The one-day job action will leave more than two million students out of class.
