Students at Kincardine District Secondary School staged a peaceful protest on Friday against changes to the public school curriculum.

 

Roughly 200 students walked out of the high school at 1 p.m. and stood on the front lawn of the school to show their disapproval of the Ontario government’s decision to remove the new sex ed curriculum, as well as cutting Indigenous revisions to the curriculum.
