Have you ever noticed that every bad social experiment we see around us -especially those targeted at kids- has been festered in Ontario like a disease in a petri dish?
Ontario updated their sex-ed curriculum in 2015 to include the introduction of gender theory to kids as young as eight, outraging parents.
Parents in the province stood alone in their opposition. They had no help from the Progressive Conservative party. They had to defend their parental rights alone, and lost.
A form of that same ideologically based sex-ed called SOGI 123, is being rolled out in BC. The SOGI curriculum, among other things, teaches that gender is fluid and not determined through biological sex - just like in Ontario.
SOGI 123 has a particular focus on “anti-bullying” and is now mandatory in all BC schools, even private and faith-based schools.
It sounds a lot like Alberta's gay straight alliances.
That legislation prevents teachers from informing parents if their children join a GSA support group, meaning the legislation mandates secrets between teachers and students, effectively excluding loving parents from the mix by force of law.
What's the next battleground for parental rights? I look to Ontario for answers.
Joining me this week is Ontario based parental rights activist Tanya Granic Allen, from Parents As First Educators (PAFE).
We talk about sex-ed, what happened to one BC school board trustee who spoke out about gender theory and what the shake up in the Ontario PCs means for parental autonomy.
