It seems the current government (that will soon be ousted) has been making it their business to attack all aspects of Charter Rights.

I really like the The Supreme Court quote above: “Parents, religious or otherwise, have the constitutional right under s. 2(a) of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms to determine all aspects of their children’s education."

SOME judges still know the law.

Keep that important evidence and copy into your school board letters!

The ability of any child “regardless of their age” to make changes to official records without parent consent disregards scientific data and research in child brain development. Some of the youngest learners in year 1 (JK) of kindergarten could still be 3 years old until the end of December when they begin school. A young child does not have capacity to understand long-term consequences. This is alarming that more educators are not questioning this policy.
