The article reports on the exclusion of a code that prohibits sexual discrimination among schools in British Columbia. Gay activist Glen Hansman has been disappointed to find out that several school districts are still on the process of converting their codes of conduct into sets of rules that prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation. He reported that a large number of submitted copies of codes of conduct from many school districts does not contain reference to such code.
