The controversial anti-strike legislation -- bill 115 -- will soon become law after MPP's voted 82-15 in favour of it on Tuesday. The bill, which union heads and the NDP call unconstitutional will cut benefits and reins in wages for thousands of Ontario teachers.
The Liberals brought back the legislature early to get the bill passed before September. 1, saying the province couldn't afford the rollover of old contracts and to ensure teachers were back in the classrooms for the first day of school, even though the teachers unions say there never was a threat of a teacher strike.
The two big unions, the Ontario Secondary School Teachers' Federation and the Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario say they will fight the bill all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada.
The minority government says this bill will help eliminate Ontario's $15-billion deficit.
