Next Policy

in their child's public K-12 school library.

Parents and Guardians: The following groups and individuals track the issue of questionable books in K-12 school libraries in Canada. We strongly recommend following their Twitter accounts below.
As school board trustees we will
advocate for the following:
  • As trustees, we do not support the censorship of books for adult readers. For children, we will seek policies to ensure materials are safe, age-appropriate, and not in violation of Canada's child pornography laws.
  • Government of Canada - Justice Laws website. Official legal definition of child pornography.

  • We will advocate that the inventory of all public school library collections be fully searchable online and that such search capabilities be open to the public.
  • We will seek the removal of any book featuring explicit sexual imagery. We are aware that the practical impact of such a ban will be limited given the prevalence of similar content online. Even so, we believe schools must aim to uphold a higher standard on principle alone.
  • We will seek the removal of any books written for children designed to normalize the tenets of gender ideology. We take this position due to the evidence of extreme harm inflicted on susceptible children led down the path of gender-affirming medical care.
  • For similar reasons mentioned above, we will seek the removal of any books written for children designed to normalize gender transitioning.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Pierre Barns, a concerned father in British Columbia, Canada for his tireless efforts to make parents aware of the content of certain books in our public school libraries.

It is up to parents and concerned citizens to demand these materials be removed from your local public school libraries.
