Dear Canada: This Rocks!

Wonderful news!

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!

    stick to celeb gossip… I didnt (and still dont) oppose gay marriage etc.. but the way you cram it down our throats makes it irritating.. and to be honest.. you annoy me so much, to the point i dont even want to hear about it anymore let alone take any more of my time up by voting on it.

    YEAH CANADA!!!!
    teach America what 'liberty and justice" REALLY means!

    While i'm happy they changed their minds, they obviously didn't have much choice, since the majority of the Catholic School Board funding in Ontario is payed by the taxpayers, therefore they are subject to the same rules as public schools are.

    Re: MsJules – When you get a world famous website that makes a lot of money. THEN tell Perez what to stick to.

    Hey Perez…You think this makes it right after you Boo'd us as a Country for a private school decision based on religion and not our countries beliefs or even the provincial goverments guidelines. You passed judgement on 34 million people when only a few board members made a decision to ban something…now we are back in you good graces again…go screw yourself you self absorbed little man child…you should have stood up and apologized to us and realized you mistake and been a man instead of a mouse and made a complete retraction! see next post

    You also say that you have 34 million readers a month from canada well I glad that the ENTIRE population of CANADA checks in on your newsworthy and informative gossip rag…I am sure you may lose some…I probably won't be one to come on as much I know I don't like you as much as…I now see you as a person that only is one sided , very much chilish and needs to grow but then again ….I know that from some of your drawing and silliness who else can do some of the things you do…I did enjoy it…but when you do something wrong there is nothing wrong in saying you are sorry and writing retractions…why don't you ever do this? You will have some answering to do one day…I guess some people never grow and always remain little chilgren and like I said manchild…

    Good. Now maybe Bishop Neinstedt of Minneapolis/St. Paul, who, according to reports from Detroit (his former butt-boy-banging station), is gay as a goose, will come out of the closet and stop treating gays like shit.

    good to see that they changed their minds.
    when the board chair compared GSA's to "nazi groups" i was truly discusted.

    Re: MsJules – That's one of the perks of having his own website. He gets to pick. My guess is the crusading isn't going to end soon.

    Re: jeuno1 – 34 million readers, or 34 million hits?



  21. 21

    Haha, the passing of this actually means nothing.
    Going to a school in that community, there is VERY little homophobia. Everyone's equal an accepted anyways, but it's nice that it's official.



  22. 22

    whoops bad me…34 million hits I retract how come Perez can't?



  23. 23

    Re: @v@ – whoops, my bad…I retract that …how come Perez can't retract anything? Sorry if I misread!
