ACTION NEEDED: TCDSB plans to march in the Pride parade!

The Toronto Catholic District School Board's (TCDSB) Indigenous Education, Equity, & Community Relations Department will be marching in the Pride parade this year alongside OECTA.

How can they even consider it? In 2021, then-Cardinal Collins said that the Pride flag is an unnecessary symbol for Catholic schools. In fact, the cross is the only inclusive symbol they need.

If Catholic schools shouldn’t celebrate Pride why would a Catholic school board march in a Pride parade? These are questions that TCDSB trustees and board members need to be held accountable to.

Pride parades, specifically 2023’s Toronto Pride parade, was notorious for lewd behaviour and obscene shows of nudity. Last year's parade included naked men who exposed their genitalia to crowds of people where children were present. In Ontario, public nudity is illegal, but for some reason this is overlooked by participants of the Pride parade. As a school board that represents children, it is disgusting that it would participate in an event that is so grossly age-inappropriate and legally questionable.

School boards don’t need to participate in woke activism, period. Their duty is to educate and uphold the values of the board they were voted to represent. The TCDSB needs to cancel its plans to participate in the Pride parade and end this nonsense.

We need your help to demand TCDSB's participation in the Toronto Pride parade be cancelled!
