Education Minister Liz Sandals says no receipts or invoices were provided to the government as it decided to pay teachers' unions 2.5 million dollars for extra costs incurred during bargaining. The government agreed to pay the Ontario Secondary School Teachers Federation and the Ontario English Catholic Teachers' Association one million dollars each, as well as 500 thousand dollars to the French teachers' union to compensate them for an extra long process under the Liberal government's new bargaining system. Sandals says she doesn't need to see every bill when doing a cost estimate. (Sandals says the circumstances will not reoccur because in the next round of bargaining the parties won't have to start from scratch, hammering out each and every clause.)
