In February 2020, the ginger beauty wrote a letter to The Specs as a message for the government of Canada focusing on the proper need and support of every teacher and student in the country.
"What could possibly be more important than our children and their education? While the government is withholding the much-needed resources to support our teachers, it is our children who are being taxed," read Douglas's letter.
Douglas sent the letter not just as a citizen, but as a concerned mother, which could be heartily felt in her words.
