Ryerson students part of the collaborative nursing program are expected to be back in class on Tuesday, after the provincial government passed a back-to-work bill Sunday, putting an end to the five-week-long college faculty strike.

On Monday morning staff gathered at eastern Ontario's four colleges - Algonquin, La Cité, St. Lawrence and Loyalist - to start mapping out what remains of the interrupted fall semester, now five weeks behind schedule.

Don Sinclair, CEO of the College Employer Council, which bargained on behalf of the province's colleges, said every school will have a different approach on how it structures the remainder of the semester. "It's unfortunate that it came to back-to-work legislation".

It looks like Ubisoft did well enough with that extra content that Siege will get supported into 2018, as well. Rainbow Six Siege's Year 2 Season 4 update is Operation White Noise, a South Korea-themed expansion .

Around 500,000 students have been out of class since the strike by 12,000 professors, instructors, counsellors, and librarians began October 15.

The notice of action alleges the colleges breached contracts with students by failing to provide vocational training and a full term of classes. "Lots of work to be done".

The fall semester at many schools will be extended into the week starting December 18, with some colleges like George Brown finishing as late as December 22.

Denver Broncos fire offensive coordinator Mike McCoy
This is his first season as a defensive coordinator, and he deserves at least another season to attempt to piece things together. As a former Broncos offensive coordinator with success, he was expected to help fix what was once a prolific unit.

JP Hornick, chair of OPSEU's faculty bargaining team, says the timeline leaves little chance for quality education.

The provincial government is ordering the colleges to create a fund, to help students struggling with their finances because of the strike, and using money the colleges saved over the course of the strike.

Students will also be eligible to get up to $500 for costs incurred because of the long-running dispute. Whether colleges could, in 18 hours or so, have wrangled all their staff and faculty (who were, after all, being forced back to work against their will) into returning to work is questionable. "It's time to put this ugly chapter behind us, and to get focused on ensuring college students get back in the classroom as soon as possible". "The arbitration will take place and whatever comes out of that", Vollebregt said. Even if the Liberals are correct, the difference is the loss of one day of instructional time: the government had, after all, already allowed the strike to consume 25 instructional days as of Friday.

Search on for those behind apparent attack that killed U.S. border agent
That area has accounted for about one percent of more than 61,000 arrests from October of last year, until May of this year. They were attacked with rocks about 30 miles (48km) from the Mexico border, according to a labour union for border agents.

Patrick Brown, the PC leader says, "The Ontario PCs are relieved to know that college students will be heading back to the classroom early next week".
