A controversial policy that would see access to gender neutral bathrooms and change rooms in Vancouver schools looks like a sure thing.
School Board trustees have voted to recommend the policy for transgender students be adopted at a final meeting next Monday.
“From my point of view, we’ve had a great, thorough consultation process, and now it’s about leadership. Vancouver trustees including myself stood up and said ‘I’m putting student safety and an inclusive environment first.”
Trustee Mike Lombardi says of the hundreds who spoke over three dedicated meetings, opinion seems to be split.
But he has no doubt that after Wednesday nights decision, the policy will be adopted June 16th.
