Wynne Liberals spend $1.8 million on ‘deceptive’ ads whitewashing sex-ed

TORONTO, June 5, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) -- The Ontario Liberal government has launched a $1.8 million ad campaign claiming to inform people about the revised sex-ed curriculum set to be rolled out this fall, but pro-family advocates say it’s actually a whitewash of a controversial program opposed by thousands of parents.

The ads, produced by ZenithOptimedia, are currently airing on radio and are scheduled to run through the summer. The Ministry of Education did not make details of the campaign available to LifeSiteNews, and ZenithOptimedia was not able to comment.

Nilani Nogeswaran, spokesperson for Minister of Education Liz Sandals, said the ad campaign was not a response to the controversy surrounding the sex-ed curriculum.
