On the Sandals Slur: MPP says Liberals being 'very defensive'

Monte McNaughton
Accusations of making a homophobic comment about Premier Kathleen Wynne is not causing an area MPP to back down in his fight against the new sex-ed curriculum.

Lambton-Kent-Middlesex MPP Monte McNaughton was accused by Education Minister Liz Sandals of making a homophobic remark when he stated Tuesday it's up to parents and not the premier – “especially Kathleen Wynne” – to decide what children are taught about sex in school.

Wynne is the first openly gay Premier of Ontario.

McNaughton continued to take shots at Wynne and the Liberal party when asked about the homophobic accusation by The Chatham Daily News on Wednesday.

“I have said that's complete nonsense,” he said. “I don't trust any premier to tell parents what's age appropriate for their children, especially Kathleen Wynne.”

McNaughton said he doesn't trust Wynne because she and her government are under four OPP investigations, and because the former deputy minister of education, Ben Levin, who helped write the 2010 curriculum, is facing child porn charges.  (more...)
