MONTREAL (LifeSiteNews) — A Montreal neighborhood council cancelled a drag queen story time for children, saying they need to review the show by drag performer and television personality Sébastien Potvin, according to CBC News.
“Everything was perfect. We had the contract signed,” Potvin lamented. “It went very, very fast last week, and I would have loved to have been informed and could have prevented this whole thing.”
Saint-Laurent borough Mayor Alan DeSousa revealed that the city is “mainly concerned about the subjects that will be discussed.”
In response to backlash on social media over cancelling the event, the council planned an August meeting to discuss the content of the drag show, which was to take place November 4.
Il y aura toujours de la place pour les drag queens dans nos bibliothèques et lieux de diffusion.
Par leur présence et leur art, elles contribuent à faire de Montréal une ville plus ouverte, juste et inclusive. 🏳️🌈#polmtl

“There will always be room for drag queens in our libraries and venues,” Montreal Mayor Valérie Plante tweeted.
Potvin believes the council will reinstate the story time after the meeting, revealing he plans to read The Crocodile Who Didn’t Like Water by Gemma Merino, a story about a crocodile who discovers maybe he is not really a crocodile.
“It’s about feeling different, not really understanding why you’re different, but eventually finding your true self and getting to understand it’s OK to be different,” he said.
He claimed that his performance is completely age appropriate for children, unlike adult-oriented events.
Recently, LGBT events have become increasingly aimed at children, with many libraries hosting drag queen hours for young children and even toddlers.
In 2018, Dylan Pontiff, a drag queen who helped organize a story hour event for children as young as three years old at the Lafayette Public Library in Louisiana, was filmed admitting, “We are trying to groom the next generation.”
Not all drag queens support introducing children to their lifestyles. In 2020, drag queen Kitty Demure warned parents that exposing children to drag queens is no different than exposing them to strippers or porn stars.
While the shows are presented as age appropriate, many drag queens take the opportunity with children to expose them to sexual depravity.
In 2019, a drag queen in the United Kingdom was caught on camera teaching small children at a library story hour how to perform the sexually-suggestive dance move called “twerking.”
Five Tampa Bay Rays pitchers are now subject to a media witch-hunt after refusing to wear LGBT symbols on their hats and shirts because of their faith in God.
One ESPN commentator called the men "bigoted" for supposedly using "religious exemption BS" to say "no" to the Pride Month clothing.
It's time to stand with these men against the intolerance of the radical left.

The careers and lives of the five pitchers — Jason Adam, Jalen Beeks, Brooks Raley, Jeffrey Springs and Ryan Thompson — will be greatly harmed if we abandon them to the cancel culture of their critics, like ESPN's Sarah Spain.
“That religious exemption BS is used in sports and otherwise also allows for people to be denied health care, jobs, apartments, children, prescriptions, all sorts of rights,” Spain claimed.
“We have to stop tiptoeing around it because we’re trying to protect people who are trying to be bigoted...” she continued.
Now they're trying to cancel people for not wearing a gay pride patch. This is always the trajectory for the Left. First they demand tolerance, then acceptance, then celebration, then participation. Learn to say no to these people or it will never end. https://t.co/02zAKDJx77— Best selling LGBT children's author Matt Walsh (@MattWalshBlog) June 8, 2022
These men should be celebrated for their bravery, but instead are being derided for sticking up for their Christian beliefs.

People are being bullied into conformity by an LGBT movement that claims to be about tolerance and diversity, unless you're a devout Christian.
“Now they’re trying to cancel people for not wearing a gay pride patch,” the Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh remarked.
“This is always the trajectory for the Left. First they demand tolerance, then acceptance, then celebration, then participation. Learn to say no to these people or it will never end.”
It's hard to imagine sports columnists like Nancy Armour of USA Today attacking Muslims for their rejection of Pride propaganda, but she sees no problem in attacking these devout Christians.
Oh for God’s sake. These folks who bastardize religion to suit their bigotry would do well to actually READ the New Testament. I’d recommend starting with Matthew. https://t.co/qAK875xDhZ— Nancy Armour (@nrarmour) June 5, 2022
We hope Nancy Armour's reading of the New Testament extends to Romans 1:25-27.
Most commentators simply don't understand that loving everyone as a Christian means telling people certain actions are extremely harmful to the soul.
SIGN: These men were right to reject the LGBT Pride insignias on their hats and jerseys.
Indeed, by peeling off the rainbow logo from their jerseys and wearing the standard team hat, the five pitchers have taken a stand against an ideology that's antithetical to Christianity.
Major League Baseball (MLB) and every other professional sports league have promoted LGBTQ causes in recent years, including showcasing a “marriage” proposal between two homosexuals in front of a stadium packed with families.
Sports are no longer safe from the tenticles of the LGBT movement, with players being strong-armed into virtue signaling for causes they disagree with.
It's time for people to stand up and say "Enough".
SIGN the petition and play your part in resisting the advances of intolerant wokeism into every sphere of public life.
Thank you for signing and sharing this petition.
