Will we, really, finally, see the the long-overdue end of streaming in Ontario?

What do the students think about it?
I am listening to and reading all the comments on the current hot topic, streaming in schools, from principals, professors, education experts etc.

Name changes could go on and on
Changing the name of Russell Township, or even looking for a namesake, because Peter Russell had slaves is not judicious.
Peter Russell died in 1808, but until the Slavery Abolition Act came into force on Aug. 1, 1834, abolishing slavery throughout the British Empire, slavery was not only legal but encouraged by London, because English colonies depended on slave labour for economic growth. People who enslaved Black persons included, among others, government and military officials, Loyalists, merchants, bishops, priests and nuns.
