EXCLUSIVE: Ben Levin's government emails

EXCLUSIVE: Confidential e-mails show pedophile Ben Levin was a trusted friend and advisor to Ontario’s Ministry of Education until the moment he was arrested in 2013.

Government still refuses to release details of Levin’s education policy advice from October, 2012.

Documents received by TheRebel.media under Ontario’s Freedom of Information laws show that child pornographer Ben Levin was a trusted friend and advisor to Ontario’s Ministry of Education until the moment of his arrest in 2013. This directly contradicts Liberal claims that Levin had nothing to do with government education policy, including the controversial child sex-ed curriculum introduced for this fall.

When Levin was arrested in 2013, Education Minister Liz Sandals issued a statement claiming "Dr. Levin's only recent involvement with the Ministry has been on contract research projects and guest speaking roles through his capacity as a professor at OISE.” The e-mail records demonstrate that is false. He not only was invited to high-level executive retreats with senior civil servants, but he was asked for his input on confidential policy documents, even before the Minister of Education had approved them. Levin also had a personal friendship with George Zegarac, the current Deputy Minister of Education, meeting him for drinks and inviting him to a Blue Jays game.

Highlights of the 47 pages of e-mails include:

* May 31, 2012: Ben Levin pitches himself to George Zegarac (current Deputy Minister of Education) for “coaching” service

* July 4, 2012: Zegarac invites Levin to attend a retreat with the department's “executive leadership team”

* October 5, 17, 18, 2012: Zegarac sends Levin a confidential PowerPoint presentation about the department's 5-year plan, before it was approved by the Minister

* October 18, 2012: Levin’s reply to that presentation (all details blacked out by the government)

* October 31, 2012: Levin’s comments to Zegarac, including "safety/well-being are not aspects of individuals or things that we would teach or develop are they?”

* November 18, 2012: e-mail from Zegarac to Levin discussing the curriculum. Zegarac writes, "Your paper will drive much of the discussion. Cabinet Office re-wrote the deck to match format of Health and others. Conversation will be most important.”

* March 4, 2013 Zegarac invites Levin for a personal meeting

* March 20, 2013, Zegarac invites Levin to meet at a bar, “The Foxes Den"

* April 25, 2013: Levin hosts a full-day workshop with 400 principals and superintendents, and writes a report about it to Zegarac, and copies Howie Bender, Chief of Staff to Minister Liz Sandals

* June 18, 2013: Levin invites Zegarac to a Blue Jays game, Zegarac accepts

In an email from George Zegara to Ben Levin, dated Sunday November 18 2012:
“…Your paper will drive much of the discussion. Cabinet Officer re-wrote the deck to match format of Health and others. Conversation will be most important.”
Isn’t that clear enough to prove Ben Levin’s influence on the content of the curriculum?
Most people are wondering why the conversations in the curriculum taste strangely disgusting. This email explains why. The conversations are not from any normal student or teacher; they are from Ben Levin, a pedophile, who also claimed repeatedly in court that he had sex with his three daughters.

I think adults should think back to their own childhood and imagine how much happier they would have been if at age 6 or 7 they knew all the ins and outs (oops) of anal and oral sex. THAT’S what fond childhood memories are made of.

Dear Rebels: The video clip you’re linking claims to provide “proof” of Ben Levin’s involvement in the new Ontario sexual education curriculum. I’ve reviewed the emails; they don’t have anything at all to do with the curriculum. Which email are you referring to?
