Over 40,000 students were expected to participate in today’s event, named March For Our Education.
The PC Government announced shortly after its election win that it would repeal a recent Liberal-created sexual education curriculum for elementary students. Shortly after, Queen’s Park halted the rewrite of an Indigenous Studies curriculum pushed for by the Truth and Reconciliation Report.
