‘Grow a spine’

Dear Editor:

RE: Principal: transphobia, homophobia on the rise at CWDHS, Nov. 4.

It is with true amazement that I read this article by Joanne Shuttleworth.

As a parent, and grandparent, it comes as no surprise that these issues are on the rise.

To quote Greta Thurnberg, the policies currently in place, and those being recommended have no “teeth”. It’s all “blah, blah, blah, and more blah, blah, blah.” It sounds and looks like something is being done and good for “politics”.

Let’s look at the offenders. Where is the accountability, and the consequences? Where are the charges? Where is the one-year suspensions? Where are the hours of community service?

The recommendations by the school board and those experts are nothing short of a joke. We need to set an example right now!

With no accountability and no consequences, this matter will only increase in time. It’s because the offenders know that they can get away with it.

Come on, we can do better. Let’s grow a spine. So sad.
