On April 13, 2022, OCDSB Diversity & Equity Coordinator decided not to invite the Hon. Irwin Cotler to speak to OCDSB teachers about antisemitism, because of his support for the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s definition of antisemitism. On May 16, 2022, she’s making flimsy excuses, saying “we don’t feel it’s the right time to introduce a new speaker in the space.” That’s less than 48 hours before Mr. Cotler was scheduled to speak.

This is all information I obtained last week through a Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act request. Please email me rmichaelteper@gmail.com to receive the entire disclosure.
