Ontario Catholic School Board Defends Suspension of Student for His Gender Ideology Stance

Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.7

The Renfrew County Catholic District School Board (RCCDSB) in Ontario, Canada, suspended an 11th grader from St. Joseph’s High School over gender ideology issues.  The board published an open newsletter to the community defending their reasoning behind the suspension, explaining that the board respects “human rights.”  The student, Josh Alexander, was banned for his strong stance that God created only two genders. He was no longer welcome in school after organizing a protest against trans-identified male students using female bathrooms.  Alexander said, “They encourage anything that goes along with the woke ideology that they’re pushing in the education system, but if you dare speak out with anything contrary to it, there will be consequences.”
