Protest Rally in Thorncliffe Park Drive
Organized by; Thorncliffe Parents Association.

Today i,e 7th Sept 2015, Thorncliffe Parents Association had organized a huge protest rally in Thorncliffe Park Drive, Toronto (Premier of Ontarios’ own riding) to protest against the proposed radical Sex-Ed curriculum. This was attended by about 2000 parents living in this community joined by others from around GTA.

In spite of a Labor day holiday and scorching sun people came out holding placards, flags and chanting “We say No”.  The rally started from Thorncliffe park library and ended in front of School followed by speeches from representatives from Catholic, Chinese, Sikh and Muslim communities. The protest had small kids as little as toddlers, elderly people, parents and youth.

The outcome of the rally was, almost every parent who were to send their kids tomorrow to public school is thinking otherwise, they are either opting for home schooling or private schools. They are hurt by this form of democracy wherein the elected leaders are not responding to plea that the parents have put forward.

Tomorrow, day one of the school reopening, all the parents will be going to the school in their neighborhood and handing over the letter of intent to withdraw their kids from school to the principal and then later on they will head towards “R V Burgess” park and start taking pure academic lessons under the trees.

The rally was covered by various media groups.
