Parents, teachers plan drive-by protest for better safety protocols

Protest for safety protocols

This seemingly never-ending pandemic continues to raise concerns for teachers and parents about pandemic protocols, CTV News reports.

The protocols that have been put in place at schools in order to combat the spread of COVID-19 have sparked a drive-by protest in all five of B.C.'s health regions for Monday afternoon.

In this protest parents will drive by the head offices of all the province's health regions. All participants have been asked to wear red and decorate their cars with red as part of the "Red for BCEd" campaign.

“The Red for Ed” campaign has served as a way to increase funding for public education. In this case it is an outlet for local protestors to call for a tougher mask mandate, better ventilation indoors and smaller class sizes during the pandemic.

A Facebook post from BC SickOut for the event said “Let's show our government and health officials that we have had enough!"

Protestors are asked to stay in their car, as the event takes place at 3:30 to 5:30pm.
