STONEWALL, MANITOBA - November 7, 2019  (LSN) 17-year-old Natalie Salisbury was suspended by Stonewall Collegiate Institute in Stonewall, Manitoba, after defending the traditional red and black poppy. Natalie refused to don an LGBT-inspired rainbow poppy so she printed off posters to defend her decision and explain why the traditional red and black poppy means so much to so many Canadians.

Natalie's father called us to express his outrage at the school’s decision.

He said Natalie is worried that no-one will stand up for her, which is a damned shame after she proudly stood up for our veterans and our right to remember their sacrifices.

The Grade 11 student refused to don an LGBT-inspired rainbow poppy so she printed off posters to defend her decision and explain why the traditional red and black poppy means so much to so many Canadians.

Natalie's father called us to express his outrage at the school’s decision. He said Natalie is worried that no-one will stand up for her, which is a damned shame after she proudly stood up for our veterans and our right to remember their sacrifices.

So we’re going to prove to her that that is not the case — people do care and will stand by her.

We will be sending this petition to Natalie to prove to her that thousands of Canadians stand with her in protecting our traditional red and black poppies.

We will also be sending a copy of this petition to the school administration to show them that Natalie is not alone — and this disgrace will not stand!

We stand by Natalie Salisbury — let's protect our poppies!
