An Alberta Catholic School Board trustee has kept her position but is facing sanctions and sensitivity training for a social media post that compared school children waving Nazi flags to their counterparts waving LGBT flags in a classroom.
On Aug. 30, Red Deer Trustee Monique LaGrange posted a photo of children waving Nazi flags beside another image of children waving LGBT flags. The caption said, “brainwashing is brainwashing.”
Although LaGrange took the post down, the Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools (RDCRS) voted to apply several sanctions. She is not to sit on any board committees, cannot speak on behalf of the board, and is not permitted to participate in events like graduation ceremonies, according to her lawyer James Kitchen.
Mr. Kitchen said she has also been ordered to undergo sensitivity training—something he said he finds concerning.
