On Friday, November 27, 2020, The 519 deputed to members of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario, stating that Premier Ford and his Government had one primary job – to keep people safe. Our communities demanded that the Government prevent Canada Christian College from becoming an accredited university degree-granting institution. Today, 52 members of Premier Ford’s Government have voted in favour of this Bill – openly welcoming hate.
At the hands of Charles McVety, his friend and a vocal bigot, this Government is inviting homophobia, transphobia, and Islamophobia into our province. The 519 reiterates that we vehemently oppose today’s vote in favour of Bill 213 as it relates to Canada Christian College.
We will continue to fight for the equal participation of our communities.

Canada Christian College is run by Charles McVety, a notorious and vocal bigot who publicly perpetrates homophobia, transphobia, and Islamophobia. Granting accreditation to the college puts our communities at risk. It will leave them vulnerable and unsafe, not knowing where to turn when experiencing such blatant discrimination because our Premier and his colleagues welcome it, causing further revictimization.

The 519 calls on Premier Ford and his government to do the right thing. Our communities demand that the college be prevented from becoming an accredited, university degree-granting institution.

Our Board Chair Pam Hrick and Board Vice-Chair Paul Jonathan Saguil will speak at the Legislative Assembly of Ontario committee meeting at 1 pm today (November 27, 2020) to ask the committee to excise Schedule 2 from Bill 213 and prevent the college from becoming an accredited university.
