Canadian students were suspended for refusing to wear LGBT symbols instead of traditional red and black poppies

The school leadership dismissed two students for refusing to wear a rainbow poppy during Remembrance Day, regarding their act as “hate speech.” Stonewall Collegiate decided to deal with the opinions of others in radical ways.

It is worth mentioning that Remembrance Day is a day of remembrance for fallen soldiers during the Second World War and the traditional symbol of this performance has always been a red-and-black poppy. Obsession about the widespread protection and propaganda of diverse minorities, the school put forward the idea of changing the symbol of mourning to a "cheerful" rainbow flower.

Two students considered this proposal insulting the memory of the dead soldiers, for which they were suspended from school with a ban on disseminating this information in the media or social networks.

For disagreement, the children were sent to the director’s office, a conversation with which one of the children tried to record on the phone, but the school principal noticed a smartphone and confiscated it. Parents were also not informed of the incident until an official suspension was issued.

A cousin of one of the students, Cyara Bird who was on the ballot for the Churchill-Keewatinook Aski riding of northern Manitoba this past election, tweeted this news. She also said that the school threatened “consequences” if the details of this conflict were leaked to the media.
