Commentary
An overwhelmingly majority of respondents in Surrey agrees with the Surrey School Boards decision to ban same-sex books in the classroom.
Surrey residents are divided on whether or not Education Minister Christy Clark should become involved with this issue following the BC Civil Liberties demand that Ms. Clark overturn the Surrey School Boards decision to ban the books.
Over 90% of respondents who do not want the book banned want Ms. Clark involved and over 40% of those who do want the book banned, want the Education Minister to step in.
The BC Civil Liberties Association has presented Education Minister Christy Clark with a ‘hot’ political potato. The number of residents of Surrey who Do Not want the same-sex books banned has increased in less than two weeks. If this goes to the Supreme Court again who knows what might happen? This issue is not going away, it’s on fire.
