POLL: Most Of Toronto Against The Idea Of An LGBT-Centric School


On Friday, we reported on efforts in Toronto to create a special school for LGBT students. While the campaign has its supporters, it also has detractors—including Toronto P-FLAG president Irene Miller, who says segregating students is wrong, even if its with the best of intentions.

Apparently, the majority of Torontonians agree with Miller.

In a poll published by the Toronto Sun, 66% of respondents said  segregating students into a gay-centric school wouldn’t solve the problem of bullying. “It may be that Torontonians see the province’s anti-bullying legislation as inclusive, whereas a separate school for LGBT students might be seen as excluding some,” Forum Research president Lorne Bozinoff said on Monday.
