We are pleased to reported that the students of Halton Catholic District School Board in Ontario, Canada who wished to express themselves in a gay student group won't be banned from doing so any longer.
The Trustees on the school's board voted yesterday to lift the ban implemented by the school's former regulators last fall. Remarkably, the final vote stood at 6-2.
We hope they understand the powerful message they are sending their students. Today, they've shown these kids who wish to express their inclusion in the gay community that they are accepted and no different from anyone else.
An immense and commendable step forward!
Equality for all!
