BURNABY, May 24, 2011 (RKRNews) — Burnaby parents, helped by RoadKill Radio’s Kari Simpson, staged another rally outside the Burnaby School Board offices tonight—this time adding a news conference at which they informed the media of their concerns.
While a handful of counter-protesters, mostly teenagers, waved signs accusing the parents of “hate”, the news conference clearly made the point that the parents’ primary concern is “Why won’t the School Board answer our questions?”
One of those questions is: Since there is already an anti-bullying policy in place that protects all groups—including homosexuals, lesbians and other “sexual orientations”—why is a new policy needed?
Another question is: Why was membership of the “advisory committee” that created the draft policy limited to “GBLTQ+”, but excluded parents, faith group leaders, and mental health professionals?
Parents’ Voice, the group that organized the rallies and the news conference, issued a statement, saying they will not grant any more interviews to radio station CKNW until they get assurances of fair and balanced reporting. Their statement accused the region’s biggest radio station of blatant pro-gay bias and distortion.
