A proposal that the Alberta School Boards Association help its members establish policies to protect students who identify as sexual or gender minorities has been blocked from being debated or voted on. The motion from Edmonton Public Schools needed the support of just over 66 per cent of delegates attending the associations's fall meeting to be accepted on the agenda. Michael Janz, chairman of the Edmonton board, says he is shocked the proposal didn't get enough support to even be discussed. (About 38 per cent voted against dealing with the motion, arguing the issue isn't prominent enough.)
