The ToolkitCreated by the Canadian Anti-Hate Network, “Confronting and Preventing Hatred in Canadian Schools” was launched on June 29 by Ahmed Hussen, Minister of Housing and Diversity.

This document presents scenarios in which educators may face “negotiated ideologies” in the classroom, and “students endorse problematic politicians and policies (such as the Trump wall) in classroom discussions. We will propose a response method such as “Insist.”
“Trump wall” refers to the initiative of former President Donald Trump to build a wall along the US-Mexico border to combat illegal immigrants between the two countries.
In another scenario shown in the toolkit, students ask why there is no “straight pride parade” or why there is no parade that uses Hitler salute in the class.
The proposed approach involves communicating unacceptable behavior to students, communicating with school managers, or meeting parents.

The government has donated $ 268,400 to Canada’s Anti-Hate Network (CAHN) to support the project.
“The increase in hatred-motivated groups and ideologies is a disturbing reality in our country that we are responsible for addressing,” Fussen said in a statement announcing the launch of the toolkit.
“That’s why our government is supporting the efforts of organizations like Canada’s Anti-Hate Network to confront hatred and create real solutions to prevent hatred.”
In a statement, CAHN chair Bernie Farber said the toolkit “prevents children from being cared for and adopted by white supremacists.”
