A peaceful protest

Morinville resident Thomas Kirsop put a few miles on his shoes Thursday afternoon walking back and forth in front of St. Germaine Plaza in downtown Morinville. Kirsop was raising awareness of his concerns about recommendations made by the Alberta Catholic School Trustees Association (ACTSA) to the Minister of Education Dave Hancock.

Kirsop is concerned the recommendations, if approved, would affect the right of non-Catholic parents to serve on school councils in Morinville and for parents to have the right to remove their children from religious instruction classes.
