As Ottawa parents await news of further strike action by the province's elementary teachers, some are vowing to stand strong behind the unions.
Even with the potential for further walkouts looming, however, dozens of parents marched through Ottawa's downtown Sunday to show their support.
"We'd like the government to hear our message, which is that parents are on the side of teachers," said Claudia Ratchjen, a parent and organizer of the weekend protest.
"We'd like them to meet their demands. We think if teachers are happy, kids will be happy."
