If there is even suspicion of racism in our schools, action should be taken to investigate it immediately. If Canada is known for our acceptance, equality, and diversity, then this investigation should be taken seriously. It is sad that it had come to the point where a petition must be signed for our elected officials to give notices to these ongoing issues in our own country, let alone our capital city.

Black and Indigenous and PoC lives matter! It’s time for Ottawa and Canada as a country to end systemic racism and it should start in the schools!
