Gaystapo Hit: Some councillors uncomfortable with Toronto Catholic school board trustee Kennedy

Kennedy’s voting record on gay-lesbian clubs in schools will be raised at Toronto Council meeting

Toronto Council could be in for a fight over the appointment of the first representative from the Toronto Catholic School Board on the Toronto Board of Health for 13 years.

At issue for some councillors is Ward 11 Trustee Angela Kennedy’s voting record at the school board.

Kennedy, a registered nurse specializing in diabetes education, has voted against homosexual-activist clubs being permitted in schools, opposed HPV vaccinations in schools, and self-identifies as Pro Life.

Kennedy’s appointment was recommended by the Civic Appointments Committee at its March 12 meeting — ending a 13-year streak of filling the single seat on the board for a school board representative with a Toronto District School Board trustee.

This time, Kennedy’s nomination was accompanied by a stern letter from Toronto Catholic District SchoolBoard Chair and former Scarborough-Agincourt Councillor Mike Del Grande, who said “this ongoing lack of representation on the Board of Health is an enormous disservice to this large constituency.”

However, in light of Kennedy’s voting record some members of council will be opposing the appointment when it comes before Council this week.  (more...)
