CultureGuard files Human Rights Code complaint over Surrey School Board refusal to rent them Bell Centre
Can a school board silence its critics by denying them access to a facility routinely rented to the public?
Any fair-minded person would answer “No!”—but that’s exactly what the Surrey School Board did when CultureGuard sought to rent Surrey’s Bell Centre for a parents’ information meeting. The Surrey School Board, which administers the Bell Performing Arts Centre, rejected the request on the grounds that “it doesn’t fit with their policies.”
The School Board’s notice of rejection didn’t specify which policies such a meeting violates; but CultureGuard Executive Director Kari Simpson noted that under the new SOGI (Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity) program, students are told not to inform their parents about sensitive material being presented in virtually every subject matter, and at every grade level from kindergarten to Grade 12.
