SD59 policy of Diversity and Inclusion gets nearly one thousand comments online

I don’t think it’s right for a theoretical guy saying he is a female to follow my daughters into their bathroom!!!!

Same for my son, it’s a setup for failure and set up for theoretical predators!!!!!

Jokes aside, if a boys going to prey on girls in the washroom and vice versa they are going to do it policy or not. Give your head a shake man.

 My kid is going to Ron Pettigrew because of (stuff) like this.....

 By the way, Ron Pettigrew is still in the same school district.

It says bathroom that do not specify gender , so that would mean there are boys are girls restroom as well and the restrooms without labels would be for those who are in the above category

And you know what. When I was in middle school, I had a male friend who was super bullied and refused to go to the boys bathroom at school cause he would get jumped when he was in there all the time. Bruises, gashes you name it ONLY Because he was gay. I used to sneak him into the girls bathroom all the time cause it’s the only way he could safely pee at school. I personally love the new policy.

 So if a kid who is failing all his/her classes identifies as an honour roll student do they get better grades?

I think the problem is that it was snuck in without parental knowledge. No one talked to me about it. When I called the school board to ask questions, I was told that my concerns were the same as most of the other parents who have called. No mention of how to address them, though. These people are concerned parents.

Some of you are so illogical. It’s pretty hard to be against this regardless of your opinions and beliefs about transgenders. Who goes in what washrooms is so trivial as nearly every washroom has stalls (privacy). The predator argument is just silly.

They’re literally children. Let’s not light the tiki torches just yet.

 - Erin Krauskopf


I’m literally mad.... f this like actually.... our kids are gonna go to the private school if this is what public schools are turning into.

Bigotry roll call.

Sometimes I think about moving back to Dawson, I see a nice post where someone thanks another person for buying coffee in a line up...and I’m like “wow small towns are a wonderful community” then I read the comments on this one and I think “wow. Nope.” 

- Emily Jean


And this is bad why? I WISH this was a thing when I was in school! There is absolutely nothing wrong with inclusion, and if you think there is, maybe it’s not the policy that’s the issue... 

- Austin McPherson-Collins


The school districts....while under mandate of the federal government (in other words...Turdeau...)..has no business interfering in parental matters. This ‘politically-correct’ liberal BS only adds to what is already a confusing time in many adolescents’ life. It’s gotta stop.....they need to mind the business of educating our children and stop pretending that they are the source of all information we’ll ever need. I’ll be the judge of that....for me and my children....... thank you very much.  - Scott Gourley


While I can appreciate it’s a local hobby to bash Trudeau schools are provincial and take all direction from provincial government, this particular initiative was adopted while the Provincial Liberals were still in play...

You are aware that a theoretical predator currently doesn’t care if theyre in the wrong bathroom right? This isn’t changing the safety standards at all.  

- Adam Dahr


It’s not the transgenders that are the ones to worry about ... It’s the heterosexuals that would be the ones to worry about ... Can you imagine if we were aloud in each other’s washrooms back then ... Think about it.
