  • Area MPP leading Tory rollback of Ontario sex-ed curriculum

As of September, Education Minister Lisa Thompson told reporters, students will be taught the older version of the curriculum which dates back 20 years to 1998.

A series of speakers took aim at the government's announcement that schools would temporarily revert to a 1998 version of the sex-ed curriculum rather than the updated version brought in three years ago by the Liberals.

In a statement to PressProgress, the Ontario English Catholic Teachers' Association described the Ford government's sex-ed repeal as a "great disappointment".

"This [curriculum] predates the legalization of same-sex marriage, social media, and the addition of gender identity and expression as protected grounds in Ontario's human rights code", she added. "And we are cancelling unnecessary renewable energy projects to help lower your electricity bills", he said. He said the move would bring down electricity rates but struggled to explain how when asked repeatedly by reporters.

The current Ontario government says that the abolition of this program will allow families and businesses in the province to save $1.9 billion annually.

Ford repeatedly pledged to repeal and replace the curriculum during the spring election campaign, saying parents had not been consulted enough on its contents.

Schreiner said he was encouraged by the mention in the throne speech for what he called "critically-needed" investments in mental health and addictions services, long-term care beds and autism support services.

"The people of Ontario can't afford to wait and they won't have to wait", Smith said Tuesday.

In response to Ford's new policies, including the changes coming to sex-ed, Green Party Leader Mike Schreiner accused Ford of "declaring war on the modern world".

Ontario Opposition leaders are calling measures announced in the Ontario throne speech as either destructive or of no use to ordinary people.

Overall, McVety maintained that he's "for sex education, it's needed, but it needs to be based on parents, not based on post-graduate researchers". Dropping the emissions pricing was a major campaign issue for premier Doug Ford, who had vowed it would be his first act after taking power as part of an effort to trim 10 cents per litre from gas prices. "Praise God who heard our prayers and delivered victory for the sake of our children".
