Duly Quoted: Paul Marai

“I’m really worried we went from revoking a ban on [Gay-Straight Alliances] to banning the word ‘gay’.”
Paul Marai, Halton Catholic School Board trustee, on that board’s proposed new equity and inclusive education policy. Created in response to controversy around the banning of GSAs, the new plan only goes so far as to approve of “By Your SIDE (Safety, Inclusively, Diversity, Equity) groups that would act as nonspecific equity clubs.” The policy is now up for community discussion, and will be voted on in April.
