My Take: By Michael Boriero

Quebec needs to vaccinate its teachers. Period. I don’t think this should be up for debate.
They aren’t nurses or doctors or health professionals. No, but they are on the front lines. This cannot be denied any longer.
The lack of respect towards the province’s educators is almost inconceivable. And it was reinforced when a vaccination pilot project was recently approved in Montreal.
The project aimed to vaccinate parents with children attending schools in the Côte Saint-Luc and the Snowdon area in an effort to control the spread of the COVID-19 variant.
However, it didn’t include teachers, or any school staff. It took public outrage to add them to the project after the fact, which honestly doesn’t look great.
Teachers were forced to work all year. Their exclusion from the vaccine priority list is a sad reminder that they continue to be ignored.
