This month the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board reinstituted a masking policy. A decision which to no surprise drew the attention of both sides of this contentious debate. After a few pauses in the meeting, and a few removals of people by the police, the board was able to become the first board in Ontario to put in place an official masking policy.

Why did the board decide to wade into this hotbed issue? We invited on board chair Dawn Renchko Danko to the podcast to find out the answer.
