Rising up for GSA’s: This sign was one of several held up by a group of students gathered in front of the Ponoka Secondary Campus on May 3 as part of a province wide student initiated walk-out. The 20 minute demonstration was designed to show support for the current provisions that protects students that join a gay straight alliance. The newly elected UCP government’s intention is to overturn the protections that include not informing parents when a student joins a GSA. Photo by Jordie Dwyer
