Today marks a month since all Ontario colleges, including the University of Guelph-Humber, began its strike.
Many students think that enough is enough and have filed a class action lawsuit against the striking Ontario colleges.
Law firm Charney Lawyers filed the class action against Ontario’s 24 colleges on Nov 14.
Some 14 students have come forward to possibly be plaintiffs in the case.
The notice of action speaks about the colleges breached contracts with students by failing to provide on the job training and a full semester of classes.
It seeks full refunds for students who choose not to continue with their programs and refunds “equivalent to the value of the lost instruction” for students who do want to continue.
A class action lawsuit is a legal action undertaken by one or more plaintiffs on behalf of themselves and all other persons having an identical interest in the alleged wrong (Merriam Webster).
More details to follow.
