Schools should embrace climate demonstration

To the Editor

All over the world millions of young people and their supporters have been rallying in solidarity with Greta Thunberg’s global appeal to take climate change seriously. On Friday Sept. 20 one such demonstration of support was held in front of the train near Haliburton high school. It was organized by a dedicated student and supported by young and old.

A number of school boards among them Toronto District Board of Education have encouraged staff and students to attend these pleas to help save our planet. Trillium Lakelands School Board refused to sanction and support the event here. What message does that send to our children? Shame on you TLDSB!
