Repeal Section 90 of Alberta’s Education Act!


To: Education Minister Demetrios Nicolaides
Cc.: Premier Danielle Smith

Whereas, a handful of trustees with Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools (RDCRS) voted on Tuesday, November 14, 2023, to literally undo the results of a democratic election by taking it upon themselves to circumvent democracy by “un-electing” their colleague, Trustee Monique LaGrange;

And whereas, this group of trustees weaponized a little-known provision in Alberta’s Education Act, found in Section 90 of the Act, to literally “un-elect” Trustee LaGrange off the Board, and thereby disenfranchised voters, rendering their ballots meaningless, and attacked the very essence of democracy;

And whereas, in doing so, these trustees robbed Red Deer Catholic parents and voters of their right to hire, fire, or re-hire their elected representatives every four years at election time, as they see fit; 

And whereas, the only individuals who should be allowed to fire a trustee if they do not like her job performance is the voters themselves, at the next election

Therefore, we the undersigned, demand that you, as Alberta’s Minister of Education, immediately repeal Section 90 of the Education Act, also dubbed the “Cancel Democracy Clause”, so that Alberta voters can never be disenfranchised again!
