Peel community shows strength, anger against new sex-ed curriculum

More than 1,000 community members last night attended a town hall meeting at
ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) Canada in response to Premier
Kathleen Wynne government’s proposed sex education curriculum.
MISSISSAUGA – “It’s unacceptable, we reject.”

This was the loud and clear message to Premier Kathleen Wynne on her government’s proposed sex education curriculum by community members at a town hall meeting in Mississauga last night.
