Ontario teachers’ union implements voting system that will value “racialized” Canadians votes higher than White votes

More proof that liberals are racist against whites. Everyone is equal, but some people are more equal than others, especially “racialized” people in Liberal Canada.

A teachers’ union in southern Ontario has decided that if not enough minority members of the board are present, votes will be weighted to further the representation of minority members.

The new system, aimed at improving the representation of Indigenous, Black and racialized teachers in the union’s decision-making process, will ensure that they always represent 50 per cent of the votes. It means that if 15 people voting have not self-identified as racialized, and five have, both groups will be weighted to each represent 50 per cent of the total vote.

The system applies to one local bargaining unit, located in the Halton region, of the larger Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF). The local unit represents roughly 1,400 teachers and staff, according to the website. A motion was proposed at the union’s June annual general meeting and it passed with the support of 68 per cent of delegates.
