Teachers group complains to TDSB about Sotiropoulos transgender tweet

Toronto District School Board trustee Sam Sotiropoulos is once again defending a recent tweet about transgender people.

Meantime, the Elementary Teachers of Toronto (ETT) sent a letter of complaint to the school board, calling for an investigation into the trustee’s tweet on transgender people and comments he later made in a Global News interview.

“At best they were insulting at worst discriminatory,” ETT President John Smith said of the trustee’s words. In a letter of complaint to the board he wrote the trustee’s comments “are offensive and possibly a violation of the TDSB Human Rights Policy.”

The ETT is calling for an investigation by the board.  (more...)
