WHEN GOVERNMENTS and teachers unions struggle to see who is tougher, pupils and parents lose. Never was this truer than in the largest teachers strike in North American history in Ontario. Some 126,000 teachers walked out Monday on 2.1 million children in 4,742 schools.This is a struggle with the Progressive Conservative regime of Premier Mike Harris. Ontario is the wealthiest of Canada's 10 provinces, with 11 million people, nearly as many as Pennsylvania. In Canada's federal system, provinces have greater powers than U.S. states.

PHILADELPHIA -- When Stephanie Ryall steps onto the track tonight at the 120th Penn Relays, she'll be one of only three Canadian individuals at the event. None of the three have run there before. The Hamilton runner says a calm strategy should help her handle the pressure. "I want to go for a good time" the 11th-grader at Westdale Secondary said earlier this week when asked about her goals. "I'm not really going for place. " "Girls like Tessa Barrett, Hannah DeBalsi ... those girls are much faster than me. " For Ryall, a good time in the 3000m run means 9:45 or faster, which is just over 10 seconds quicker than what she has run at this year's indoor meets.

WINDSOR, Ontario -- In Canada, they do math a little differently, at least as far as gambling is concerned. Authorities here figure that the government can make a lot more money if it owns casinos and pays experts from the gambling industry a fee to manage them. And they're right. Ontario struck a deal with a blue-chip Las Vegas company to manage Casino Windsor for 2.74 percent of the gross revenue from casino gambling and 5 percent of net profits. The province does not make these percentages public, but they have been reported by Canadian Gaming News, a journal that covers the gambling industry.

Although I had anticipated that it would happen, it was still with some surprise that I found myself being dragged in the snow behind eight powerful, excited Siberian huskies, one desperate hand on the sled handle and legs flailing behind me in what our guide good-naturedly referred to as "an Indiana Jones." I managed to pull myself back on the sled and bring it to a halt. As I waited for my wife, Kerry, to limp her way over because she had been knocked off the sled halfway down the hill, I found myself breathing heavily, surrounded by a stunning, snowy landscape.

Baltimore has brought in a tough new weapon in the battle against the towering mounds of gray snow lining city streets — a Canadian snow melter. The device, which looks like a Dumpster with a panel of knobs and gauges, can melt up to 10 truck loads of snow an hour, said Scott Brillman, deputy director of the city's emergency management office. The melter was chewing through snow in the parking of Polytechnic Institute this morning, but is slated to travel to neighborhoods, including Poplar Hills, Federal Hill and the Harford Road corridor, to tackle drifts there, said Mayor Stephanie C. Rawlings-Blake.

BRAMPTON, Ontario - A Toronto man was found guilty yesterday of taking part in the activities of a terrorist group whose bold, if ill-formed, plans included the goal of decapitating Prime Minister Stephen Harper. The defendant was the first of 11 suspects to be tried in the case. The man, who was the test case for Canada's first anti-terrorism law, introduced in 2001, cannot be named because he was a juvenile when charged. He was among 18 people, now known as the Toronto 18, who were arrested after a series of police raids in June 2006.

In Toronto, this event caused an outbreak of disease that killed 44 people, infected another 330, and forced hospitals to close.

BRAMPTON, Ontario -- Prosecutors said yesterday that some of the men charged in a terrorist plot last week planned on storming the nation's Parliament, taking politicians hostage and beheading Prime Minister Stephen Harper if Canadian troops were not withdrawn from Afghanistan. The accusations delivered in a one-page investigation summary included no evidence to substantiate the charges, said defense attorney Gary Batasar. "There's an allegation, apparently, that my client personally indicated that he wanted to behead the prime minister of Canada," Batasar said of the synopsis of the case against his client, Steven Vikash Chand, 25, which he said he received minutes before the proceedings.
