Toronto District School Board: After America, the voice against caste discrimination is now being raised in Canada. Canada’s Toronto District School Board (TDSB) has taken a big step against caste discrimination. The board has accepted that there is caste discrimination in the schools of the city, so the board has passed a resolution to eliminate caste discrimination and harassment. The Toronto District School Board voted in favor of the proposal on Wednesday (March 8).
The board has decided to take the help of the provincial human rights body to solve this problem. The Toronto District School Board has also asked the human rights body to make a framework for this. The board also passed a resolution moved by trustee Yalini Rajkulasingam. According to media reports, 16 trustees voted in favor of the resolution and five voted against it.
