OTTAWA (LifeSiteNews) – Ottawa Police arrested four people who were protesting a drag queen story time event yesterday that was geared toward children.
According to Ottawa Police, four people were arrested but not charged for protesting at the event. They were released shortly thereafter.
The drag story time event was held at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa and saw drag performers China Doll and Cyril Cinder read stories to kids. The event was part of Capital Pride’s Winterlude programming.
Video posted online by Lincoln Jay of Rebel News shows Canadian High School student Josh Alexander being placed in handcuffs before being put in the back of a police car.
Additional video posted shows protesters and counter-protesters clashing outside the National Arts Centre.
It is not known why Alexander and the three others were detained by police.
Josh Alexander is facing expulsion for defying the LGBT agenda at St. Joseph's High School! Finish his brave mission now!
St. Joseph's High School has suspended Josh Alexander — and is now considering his expulsion — for daring to challenge the LGBT "transgender” agenda.
Josh Alexander refused to sit idly by while deluded young men gained access to the women’s restroom — all by pretending to be women.
Young women should not be manipulated in this way, and deserve safe bathrooms without young men in them!
Taking action into his own hands, Josh led a school-wide WALKOUT in open defiance of St. Joseph’s transgender policy — demanding that St. Joseph's High School STOP this immorality.
This is when the school took action against Josh Alexander and suspended him!
SIGN: DEMAND THAT ST. JOSEPH'S HIGH SCHOOL STOP ITS PERSECUTION OF JOSH AND ITS SUPPORT OF TRANSGENDERISM!
This attack on truth and blatant rejection of the Catholicism — from a Catholic school — cannot be tolerated.
People of faith, good will, and common sense must stand up and say — ENOUGH.
Do not remain silent – your voice is powerful, so make your voice heard!
SIGN NOW: St. Joseph's Catholic High School must AFFIRM the biological reality that there are only two genders - male and female.
SIGNING and SHARING this petition will spread the news of Josh Alexander’s inspiring school-wide movement. Help him now before it's too late!
Josh Alexander may be expelled for fighting against these attacks by himself.
RAISE YOUR VOICE IN DEFENSE OF JOSH AND DEMAND THAT ST. JOSEPH'S STOP ITS TRANGENDER AGENDA!
Alexander told LifeSiteNews that he will be giving more details regarding the incident at a later time.
He had announced on Twitter this past Sunday that he would be protesting the drag queen story time event.
“Join us in Ottawa on Wednesday. Peaceful and respectful as always. @ National Arts Center – Centre National des Arts,” tweeted Alexander.
A video clip from CTV Ottawa shows Alexander and brother Nick Alexander being cornered by police.
Alexander said in the CTV video clip that to have kids around drag “is just wrong.”
“It’s an inherently sexual thing, drag’s always been sexual, we’ve recently politicized it.”
This was the second time Alexander was detained by police this week.
On Monday, he was arrested and charged at his school for attending class.
Alexander protested his Catholic school, St. Joseph’s, in Renfrew, Ontario last year allowing gender-confused males to use girls’ bathrooms and was then suspended.
Josh’s attorney, James Kitchen, the chief litigator for Liberty Coalition Canada (LCC), told LifeSiteNews on Monday that Alexander’s decision to go back to school today was “an intelligent choice of a young man who knows what he is doing.”
As reported by LifeSiteNews, Alexander was handed a 20-day suspension on November 23, 2022, after organizing a school walkout in support of girls’ rights to access their facilities without the presence of male students.
The teenager had told LifeSiteNews that, in accordance with Catholic teaching and the Bible, he believes that there are only two sexes.
In recent years, there has been a noticeable push in western nations to actively promote gender ideology to young people, particularly in the United States and Canada.
In fact, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s federal government pledged a whopping $100 million in funding last year for LGBT activist groups.
