Peel parents march to alert officials to LGBT issues, religious bullying in schools

David MenziesMission Specialist

Opposition to the Peel District School Board’s accommodation of Muslim religious practices continues as parents gathered once again last Saturday to send a clear message to officials who aren’t listening to them.

Watch as I speak with one of the organizers of the rally who explains why she and so many others are speaking up.

Originally from India, and someone who has also lived in the Middle East, she notes the absurdity of witnessing the accommodation of one particular religion in Canada in a move that is clearly at odds with Canadian values of equality and separation of church and state.

Ron Voss, more and more parents are standing up. Just the media silences them, and the government oppresses them.

Deborah Graupner says "screen school board trustees for Canadian Values .
If the Conservatives win the next Federal election , they can put Kellie in charge of education. She will fix the Trustees of Peel District.

Is it any wonder that our kids are brainwashed with so-called social justice when the people who run the school system are brainless! In the last few months the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario, the public elementary school teachers union, on its glossy publication for teachers – “Voice” – has featured Black Lives Matter and Climate Justice. The BLM issue had an interview with a person – I could not tell from the photo or name whether the person was a he or she – who simply spewed out what BLM demands of local school boards. The Climate Justice issue had an interview with the crackpot activist Naomi Klein. I refuse to read her nonsense – I have seen it before in that Manifesto that she and her husband conjured up!

The kids are fed junk “justice” commentaries in school because the teachers are fed the same garbage and do not take the time to investigate its credibility.

Separation of Church and State yes but remember Islam is a Political Platform, not a Religion.

Totally right on. From a parent’s perspective: we make choices and sacrifices to meet them. IF 5 prayers a day are the MOST important issue to you, then pull your child from public schools and PAY for an Islamic school, or home school. It took 4 decades to inflict a prohibition of Christianity from our (Public) schools. So now, take ANY religious references OUT of public schools – it has NO place there, no matter which religion it is. “Accommodation” is bullshit, it means building a wheelchair ramp, not a ramp to Allah or any other man-made invented “god” or theocracy. Saying this while I still can before the M-103 thought police arrest me for not adhering to a violent oppressive totalitarianism… of course, IMHO

Muslims are fully aware of the separation of church and state to the degree that we practice this in Canada. However they feel that their laws and their needs stand over ours and are defiant and will intimidate those who stand in their way. Intimidation is one thing but to have willing accomplices in achieving their goals is unacceptable.
I feel sorry for the parents whose children are trapped in these mosque/madrasas and shudder to think what kind of Canada the children will live in as adults.

I think school board trustees and teachers should be screened for Canadian values, before being allowed to run for office, or teach in our public school system. The teacher’s union needs to be scrapped, asap.

Class action lawsuit against the Peel school board dictatorship! Who do these people think they work for?
This is no fringe minority group, this is all of the parents in the district who are non Muslim. A group too large to be ignored.

So Canada is the only country to accommodate prayer rooms for Muslims in schools? Time to sue, or out and out fire everyone on that school board. How are they getting away with such belligerence?

Canadian western values!

Only Justurd,s Muslim cult can be in schools . The rest of Canada are all infidels.
The most divisive cult on the planet.

Need to hear from more people from “diverse” backgrounds, like this woman. Justin, Wynne and the rest have to realize that immigrants come to Canada for OUR values and to ESCAPE the divisive, racist, sexist, homophobic, and backward religious values of their homeland.

Will the Peel Thought Police be knocking down her door and take her away for reeducation?
