Many students at Thorncliffe Park Public School have yet to attend their first classes of the school year. Their parents are keeping them out of school to protest Ontario's new sex-education curriculum.
Khalid Mahmood of the Thorncliffe Parents Association told The Rebel that they are planning to keep their children out of school for the month of September.
As an alternative to classes, the Association has set up a school in the park for the almost 200 children whose parents are unable to homeschool them during this time.
Mahmood says he and the other parents "have been labelled homophobes" or suspected of being members of "a particular political party."
He denies this, saying, "We are not against any community, even LGBTQ. If they are discriminated against, we are standing with them. We are asking the same respect for our side, too."

Ontario’s sex-ed curriculum sexualizes young children, undermines parental authority and imposes the government's morality on every Ontario family.
