An Ontario teen who was suspended from school for sharing his views on gender issues is appealing the decision, saying he has the right to his religious beliefs.

Josh Alexander was a Grade 11 student at St. Joseph’s Catholic High School, part of the Renfrew County Catholic District School Board in Ontario, when he was accused of harassment and bullying and suspended last year.

Mr. Alexander said the school is violating his freedom of religion because he expressed his view that there are only two genders and organized a rally and student walkout to protest biological boys being permitted in girls’ bathrooms.

He is appealing the school’s decision to suspend him from school. The hearing was held on Nov. 15 and 17, but Mr. Alexander’s lawyer said a publication ban was placed on all information relating to the hearing.
