Protesters oppose Muslim prayer in public schools
They waved signs that warned of “creeping jihad” and proclaimed “Islam must be reformed or banned.”
They chanted — “No Islam in our schools”; “No Mohamed in our schools”; “No Sharia law in our country.”
About 100 protesters, many from groups such as the Jewish Defense League, the Christian Heritage Party and Canadian Hindu Advocacy, came to the Toronto District School Board Monday evening to protest its approval of formal Friday prayer services for Muslim students at Valley Park Middle School.
Standing at the back of the crowds, far from the megaphone-wielding speakers, York University students Mariam Hamaoui and Sarah Zubaira had their own signs espousing their right to pray in school.
They came to thank the school board for providing a place for the Valley Park students to pray. Previously those students had left their school to attend prayers at a nearby mosque on Fridays.
So it is not against the law to have prayer in public schools in Ontario, you just can't force anyone into it AND you can't have religious services, but you can accomodate prayers and other services I suppose.
The neighbourhood is almost all Muslim. Should we worry?
