VANCOUVER, June 16 2003 (LifeSite – The same day as the Canada Commons justice committee urged the government not to appeal court decisions allowing same-sex marriages, a B.C. school board rejected three books depicting homosexual marriage from being used as a teaching resource in kindergarten and Grade 1 classes.

Despite a Supreme Court of Canada ruling last December that said trustees did not have the right to ban the books primarily on religious grounds, a review by the board rejected the books on grounds that the grammar, continuity, and various non-sexual images in the book do not match the board’s criteria for appropriate learning aids.
