Parent group? to protest religious accommodation in Peel schools

Peel District School Board’s religious accommodation for students is falling under fire again.

A group of parents are planning a protest at the suburban Toronto school board next week calling for the annexation of all religious practices from Peel schools.

The protest comes weeks after the school board issued a fact sheet to quell misinformation regarding religious accommodation.

CP24 reached out to Peel District School Board who on Thursday declined to comment, saying in an email, “we are not participating in any further media interviews on this issue.”

This isn’t the first time Concerned Parents of Canada has staged an event, calling for an end to Muslim prayer service in Peel region schools.

The group describes themselves on Facebook as opposing “discrimination, hate, segregation and religious practices in public school.”  (more...)

This is an example of the astroturf groups that undermine conservative parents in the province. By taking up media bandwidth and luring support away from authentic issues, this activity blunts the efforts of any real conservative movement. Catholics settled the issue of religious accommodation long ago. Suck it up.
