Colleges, faculty spar prior to voting

TORONTO—Ontario's colleges and the union representing striking faculty members are accusing each other of spreading misinformation ahead of a contract vote in the labour dispute that has left half-a-million students out of class for a month.

Some 12,000 Ontario college professors, instructors, counsellors, and librarians haven't been at work since Oct. 15.

Strike stressing international students

Tens of thousands of international students affected by a faculty strike at Ontario colleges are being reassured by immigration officials that they won't be penalized for a delay that is beyond their control.

But some international students say the work stoppage, which began last Monday, has them worrying about finances, as well as their education and immigration status.
