1 million march for children
Hundreds gathered along Windsor's riverfront as part of a protest and counter-protest over LGBTQ issues and gender identity policies in schools. The protest was part of nation-wide demonstrations as members of the group "1-Million-March-4-Children" say rally participants are "standing together against gender ideology in schools." The protests are linked to policies across the country, including in New Brunswick and Saskatchewan, that require young people to get parental consent before teachers can use their preferred first names and pronouns. More than 750 people gathered at Dieppe Gardens along the city's riverfront for the protest and counter-protest.
