Fundraiser "March For Life" Protest March Putting Students at Risk Of Violence with Protesters

BURLINGTON April 25, 2018 - The Halton Catholic District School Board is sending students to the "March For Life" political protest in Ottawa May 10 and possibly into violent confrontations at various events with pro choice supporters. This has happened before in previous years according to CTV news reports

OSBIE the insurer for the HCDSB, stresses that this type of political protest that the Board sends students to is completely voluntary on the part of the student. Consent forms signed by students do not list this type of risk. Students are therefore assuming all liability if they are attacked or harmed during the protest. 

When contacted by HCDSBNEWS OSBIE risk management personnel were unaware that the school Board was sending students to the May 11, 2018 March For Life protest in Ottawa.
