A case in point: the Toronto District School Board has several “concerns” with respect to the imagery – and even the foodstuffs – associated with All Hallow’s Eve. In fact, some schools in Toronto and elsewhere now refer to Halloween as “Black and Orange Day,” fearing the H-word itself will be as potentially offensive to certain groups as Christmas may be for some non-Christians.
There’s actually an entire policy to ensure that nobody is offended. Except for those with even the slightest bit of common sense.
I wonder how many meetings, attended by how many people, it took to think this one up. And was there even a single complaint to prompt it?
