Nova Scotia's Progressive Conservatives are pushing the premier to fire Education Minister Karen Casey over her handling of the teachers' contract dispute. Tory Leader Jamie Baillie has launched an online petition, saying Casey's approach with the Nova Scotia Teachers Union has been "incompetent and unethical" and has poisoned negotiations. (Casey closed schools to students and threatened to impose a new contract over teachers' work-to-rule campaign, before backing down Monday amid public outcry after receiving assurances about student safety during the job action. Teachers launched their work-to-rule campaign on Monday after talks involving a conciliator broke down November 25th.)
