Subject: Chief Commissioner's Decision re: Ashu Solo against City of Saskatoon and Randy Donauer

Prairie South School Division,

In the attached judgment issued last week in Ashu Solo v. City of Saskatoon and Randy Donauer, the chief commissioner of the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission, Judge David Arnot, says that a single prayer recitation doesn’t cause enough harm to breach the Saskatchewan Human Rights Code, but that an ongoing practice of prayer recitations would.  Judge Arnot wrote, “The adoption of a general practice of reciting prayers at municipal events is contrary to the Code.”  His full decision is attached or is available at

Therefore, the ongoing practice of prayer recitations at Lindale Elementary School and Caronport Elementary School would clearly violate the Saskatchewan Human Rights Code and you need to cease and desist the prayer recitations immediately.  You should immediately read the attached judgment and ask your school board lawyers to read it.  While you’re waiting for your school board lawyers to read it, you should immediately cease and desist your discriminatory and bigoted prayer recitations.

Sincerely,

Ashu Solo
