The Toronto District School Board Does the Right Thing

I'm a big mouth when things go wrong-especially where disabled children are concerned. It behooves me to be equally loud when people do the right thing.

I hereby salute the Toronto District School Board for doing right by Jacob Trosser, and enabling him to attend Elkhorn Public School in Toronto, where he is being embraced by his teachers and classmates with a lot of love and understanding. This is an integration success story that needs to be celebrated.

A huge shout out to David Menzies, Michael Coren and Farzana Hassan of Sun TV and the Toronto Sun newspaper, and Jeff MacArthur of the Corus Radio Network for shedding light on this story.

Thank you for making a difference in the life of a very special child and making a very tough life a little easier for this little guy.
