13-year-old Wyatt Sharpe is a digital media wonder. He’s been doing political interviews (better than most political interviewers in Canada) for a couple of years now, and he’s incredible.
Wyatt’s passion for making news accessible to his generation is trumped by the fact adults like his stuff too.
If this tentative agreement is turned down by CUPE members, Walton says “it doesn’t mean that we’re on the street the next day, we would have to serve another five day notice.”

Wyatt is taken so seriously by Ontario Politicians that one of them had his staff threaten Wyatt with a “we don’t appreciate you saying negative things about us.” From the office of the Minister Of Education, Stephen Lecce, no less.
I’ve been polite, and communicated fairly to his team as I always do. It’s an important piece of dialogue, I truly believe that.#onpoli

The conservative government of Ontario is fisting students as we speak, and as a 7th grader, Wyatt wanted to ask the education minister a few questions.
So, Wyatt sent a few official requests and talked about not hearing back from Lecce’s office.
Not getting back to a 13-year-old is bad form and makes Lecce look bad, and perception is everything to this shit ass conservative extremist government, So they told a 13-year-old kid to STFU or else in the nicest way possible.
Saying, “We don’t appreciate you making us look bad,” to a 13-year-old with a podcast is soft.
Lecce’s COMMS director is Caitlin Clark. I think she wants to hear from you. All of you. For weeks on end. She’s in the business of communication so let’s communicate with her. A LOT. Ask her why she gets off threatening a little kid. And if it wasn’t her, who threatened Wyatt? I’d like to know so we can encourage Caitlin and Stevie to be better people who make time for 13-year-old engaged Ontarians.
