Catholic board talks pride parade

The Gay Pride Parade in Toronto was the final topic on last nights agenda for the Algonquin Lakeshore Catholic School Board.

A full gallery took in the meeting, many to hear more on Catholic teachers marching in the parade.

The Ontario English Catholic Teachers voted in favour of the decision earlier this year.

Trustee Greg Speagle stated Catholics must support all people, but in the right way.


More from Trustee Speagle.


When asked to open the topic for discussion, no trustees responded.

Jocelyne Kilpatrick is with Parents as First Educators and says she was disappointed the statement did not receive traction.


Director of Education Jody DiRocco says the board has no comment on the issue at this time.

The World Pride Parade takes place next week in Toronto
