Parents plan province-wide protest to new sex-ed program

News Sep 30, 2015 East York Mirror

A provincewide protest of Ontario’s new sex-ed curriculum will take place Thursday, Oct. 1, the Canadian Families Alliance announced Monday, Sept. 25 in Thorncliffe Park.

Several parent advocacy groups gathered at the Thorncliffe Park Community Centre to announce the protest, which aims to disprove Premier Kathleen Wynne and Education Minister Liz Sandal’s statements that most Ontario parents support the new curriculum. To attempt to disprove those claims, concerned parents will keep their children home from school for the day.

“We support the effort of parents across Ontario in pulling their children from their elementary classrooms to protest Kathleen Wynne’s sex-ed agenda,” said Teresa Pierre, president of Parents as First Educators. “This will help send a strong message to the government that they should stop interfering with parents’ rights to be the primary educators of their children.”

Khalid Mahmood, president of the Thorncliffe Parents Association, said as a father, he is concerned about the new material.

“Why are Liberals so hell-bent on pushing age-inappropriate lessons such as those which encourage 11 year olds to masturbate, and others which get 12 year olds thinking about anal sex, oral sex and sexual pleasure,” he asked, adding, “We are calling for a mass withdrawal of students in every community. Parents will send a strong message that the Liberals cannot ignore – let kids be kids.”

Pierre encouraged parents against the new program to join them in protest.

“The Liberal sex curriculum is an attack on the innocence of our children,” she said. “We hope every community will find a way to join other families in protesting Kathleen Wynne’s sex-ed agenda on Oct. 1.”
