TORONTO, June 11, 2018, (LifeSiteNews) – A pro-family organization in Ontario has launched an online petition asking Premier-elect Doug Ford to repeal Kathleen Wynne’s “radical” sex-ed curriculum in time for the upcoming new school year.
“I am asking you to repeal Kathleen Wynne’s radical sex ed curriculum by the start of the new school year on Tuesday, September 4, 2018,” states the petition created by Campaign Life Coalition (CLC).
The petition is already circulating rapidly amongst parents in all parts of Ontario. It has garnered 1,800 signatures as of this writing. CLC plans to hand-deliver the petitions to Doug Ford.
“The voting public has given Premier Ford a huge and very clear mandate to implement all of his campaign promises,” said Jim Hughes, CLC’s National President.
“That includes repealing Kathleen Wynne’s radical sex-ed curriculum – one of his key pledges – which helped deliver a crushing victory against the Wynne Liberals,” he added.
“During the leadership race, Mr. Ford told Campaign Life Coalition that he would make repealing and replacing the Wynne/Levin sex program “an early priority” in his administration,” said Jeff Gunnarson, CLC’s Vice-President.
“The day after the election, Ford repeated his repeal pledge, but didn’t 100% commit to doing so by the start of the 2018/2019 school year. Parents are calling on the Premier-elect to repeal the sex-ed curriculum no later than the first day of school on Tuesday, September 4th, and we aim to ensure he does,” he added.
States the petition to Ford: “I am counting on you, Premier Ford, to not let another school day go by where our innocent children are subjected to ideological Liberal indoctrination and anti-scientific theories, such as the radical notion that being a boy or a girl is unconnected to one’s biological reality.”
“Defend our parental rights. Protect our children from explicit, age-inappropriate topics like anal sex and masturbation. Repeal the sex curriculum by September,” it states.
