TDSB school removes Jewish Heritage Month banner because too JEW!!!

Canada school removes student banner for likeness to Israel flag

In a decision upheld by officials at the Toronto District School Board (TDSB), the principal of a Toronto public school removed a banner made by students for Jewish Heritage Month – because of its resemblance to an Israeli flag, according to Jewish organization B’nai Brith Canada.

The banner had hung for a week without incident in the main foyer of Forest Hill Collegiate Institute, a midtown Toronto high school with a large Jewish population, before being removed without notice or consultation on Monday. When questioned by students and parents, Principal Reiko Fuentes told them that, although originally approved, the banner was “too controversial” because it resembled the Israeli flag.
