3 things Canadians can do right now to make sure Doug Ford repeals sex-ed
July 19, 2018 (Campaign Life Coalition) – Campaign Life Coalition created a petition asking Doug Ford to repeal Kathleen Wynne's radical sex ed curriculum by the start of the new school year. We got 16,000 signaturesfrom Ontario parents and concerned citizens, and it may well have made an impression on Doug Ford!
During the Throne Speech last Thursday, Ford's new PC government announced that the age-inappropriate sex curriculum would be repealed by September.
Repealing sex ed was mentioned several times as a centerpiece of the Throne Speech. Ford used very strong language, describing the Liberal sex curriculum and discovery math as "failed ideological experiments in the classroom".
A huge victory moment! Or so we thought.
EDUCATION MINISTER CONTRADICTS DOUG FORD IN APPARENT FLIP-FLOP
The day after the Throne Speech, Canada's entire media establishment launched an orchestrated, fake news campaign against the sex ed repeal announcement.
True to form for the biased, liberal media, they published hundreds of articles and reports making ludicrous, unhinged claims, like that "transgender" and "gay" children would literally die if Ford were to repeal the curriculum.
That was a total lie of course.
It is Kathleen Wynne's age-inappropriate and anti-scientific sex curriculum that puts children's physical and psychological health at risk. And makes them more vulnerable to sexual predators, not less so.
By midday on Monday, Education Minister Lisa Thompson cracked under the pressure from left wing journalists, saying that the anti-scientific theory of gender identity will still be taught to children at an early age, along with sexual consent:
"We know they need to learn about consent. We know they need to learn about cyber safety, we know they need to learn about gender identity and appreciation."
What on earth was Minister Thompson thinking when she undermined Doug Ford's powerful Throne Speech and promise to parents?
Is she not aware that the anti-scientific theory of gender identity was the most offensive and dangerous component in Wynne's sex program, and the one that parents want to see repealed first?
Has Thompson already forgotten that the voters of Ontario awarded the PCs a super majority, in large part because Ford campaigned on repealing the despised curriculum?
This appears to have been a knee-jerk reaction by an inexperienced, novice Minister who is not used to being on the other end of hostility from liberal reporters who hate conservative policies. Thompson needs to be respectfully reminded that the Ford PCs have a super majority and a mandate to implement all the policies Ford promised.
Furthermore, she doesn't need to fear the leftist media. The next election is 4 years away, and the Ford-hating press can't do anything to hurt him now.
Thompson needs to ignore the radical transgender activists, LGBTTIQ+ activists and union representatives which the fake news media is trotting out to make it look like there is widespread support for Kathleen Wynne's sex curriculum.There simply is not.
The voices demanding transgender ideology be taught by no later than age 8, along with the rest of the child-sexualizing curriculum, are a tiny minority of activists. Their voices are merely being amplified to look big because their media allies are giving them a platform.
WALKING BACK THE FLIP-FLOP
Thompson clearly received backlash for her comments because by the end of day on Monday , she issued another statement walking back her apparent flip-flop from earlier in the day, stating:
"As of today, we have made no decisions on what the new curriculum will look like. The final decision on the scope of the new curriculum will be based on what we hear from Ontario parents". (emphasis added)
We sincerely appreciate that correction from Minister Thompson and thank her for making it.
However, we're still disturbed that she left the door open for teachers to impose Wynne's radical sex curriculum on children, by also saying in the statement that the repeal still "leaves ample space to discuss current social issues".
Could that mean ample space to teach the flawed theory of gender identity to 8 year olds?
