On Feburary 12 2008, the Port Hope Evening Guide published a letter which contained racist and anti-immigrant statements, authored by Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board Trustee Gordon Gilchrist. In response, CRRC organized a press conference with community leaders, who stressed the need for Gilchrist's immediate resignation from the KPRDSB.  For background on the Gilchrist case, as well as community responses, click here.
