Manitoba Teachers’ Society: Another Failing System For Our Children and Families

Treaty One Territory, Manitoba – The Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs (AMC) is alarmed to hear that educators responsible for the care and well-being of children in the education system, have been convicted of sexual offenses – and even more upsetting, are being protected in Manitoba.
“As a parent, it is disheartening to hear that teachers, whom we lend the utmost trust with our children, are being protected by the union of the Manitoba Teachers Society,” stated Grand Chief Arlen Dumas. “We expect a level of care and well-being for our children when they are in the school system trying to get their education. The fact that the union and provincial government are protecting criminals from the public shows a double standard in our society. Parents and the general public have a right to know if a person who is providing a service to their children, is criminally charged with an offense.”
