The Toronto District School Board’s (TDSB) Ward 8 trustee Shelley Laskin told a parent supportive of the nationwide One Million March for Children that parental rights do not exist in Canada and that there are only children’s rights.
Laskin’s comments attacking the concept of parental rights came after a concerned parent emailed the trustee, expressing displeasure with the TDSB’s vocal opposition to the demonstrations happening across the country.
The TDSB had emailed the district’s parents with a letter from the TDSB’s director of education Colleen Russell-Rawlins and her associate directors preemptively denouncing the protests as “inflammatory,” “transphobic,” and “hateful.”
In response to the TDSB letter, the concerned parent sent a letter of his own to the TDSB, expressing his concerns he had with the TDSB’s statement which he claims misrepresents the diverse communities represented at the march.
