BC moves to ban protests, disruptions in the vicinity of schools

The provincial government has introduced legislation to protect schools from disruptive or violent protests.

The bill would create a 20-metre buffer zone around schools.

Premier David Eby says, unfortunately, this law is needed.

He notes there have been at least 18 such protests…..so something has to be done to protect students and staff.

Eby says most of the demonstrators have been angry about the sexual orientation and gender identity educational programs.

Attorney General Niki Sharma says people have a right to protest…..but they can’t be allowed to affect the safety of children and educators.
