Re. Adrian Raeside cartoon, The Tri-City News, Jan. 27.
While I understand a newspaper's editorial cartoon is meant to push buttons and provoke discussion, I found the Adrian Raeside cartoon referenced above to be mean-spirited and misleading.
Your cartoon makes it look like the union is asking for 15% a year while it is really over several years and is mostly to accommodate the rising cost of living in the Lower Mainland.
How many millionaire teachers do you know? I surely don't know any and after teaching full-time for six years and living a somewhat frugal existence, I will be lucky to ever be able to afford to purchase a one-bedroom apartment.
I found this cartoon discouraging and I'm worried that it will incorrectly inform peoples' opinions of teachers.
