Wynne, Liberals steer us wrong on new sex ed curriculum

Michael Otis and his family have lived in Newmarket

Kathleen Wynne and her government have clearly decided to tough out parental opposition to the updated health and physical education program.

In 2010, when Wynne, then minister of education, trotted out virtually the same program, parental outrage forced former premier Dalton McGuinty, then Wynne’s boss and leader of a minority government, to shelve it until a later date.
