School districts across BC have until the end of the year to update their anti-bullying policies to include explicit references to sexual orientation and gender identity.
The Education Minister Mike Bernier made the announcement in Vancouver.
Skeena Diversity Society’s Saša Loggin says this kind of action makes schools more inclusive.
She says this will really help students.
Loggin believes Terrace is making great strides in making the area more inclusive and looks forward to seeing what the policy will look like.
