Alberta vs. Ministry of Education 1. Who is the complainant in this case? The complainant in this case is the Ontario Human Rights Commission. 2. Who is the respondent in this case? The respondent in this case is the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario. 3. Summarize both sides of the issue. Reference specific excerpts from the Ontario Sex-Ed Curriculum and the Ontario Human Rights Code. In this case, the Ontario Human Rights Commission feels as if the current curriculum is discriminatory against girls and LGBTQ+ students. They are worried about the rates of self-harm and sexual harassment. The Ministry of Education must not have seen anything wrong with the curriculum, or they would have changed it themselves before they were asked to do it. In the Ontario Human Rights Code, it states that at school, everybody has the right to feel included and not discriminated against, and the Ontario Human Rights Commission felt as if the curriculum was discriminatory, and that it needed to bring more awareness to serious problems, and be more inclusive of every student in the school. 4. What do you think the finding should be in this case? Explain. I think the finding in this case should be that the Ontario Human Rights Commission overrules the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario, and make the curriculum not discriminatory, make everybody feel safer at school, and make everybody feel included. 5. What do you think the remedies (if any) should be? Explain. In my opinion, I don’t think there are any remedies. I think the OHRC is in the right place trying to change the curriculum and to make everybody feel safer at school.
