Byelection candidate encouraging parents to withdraw kids from sex-ed lessons

Mississauga byelection candidate Arshad Mahmood is flanked by supporters as he
mails out thousands of form letters advising parents of their rights to have their
children opt out of the new sex ed curriculum.
A Mississauga byelection candidate is distributing 20,000 form letters to residents wishing to withdraw their children from the province’s new sex-ed curriculum.

Ward 4 candidate Arshad Mahmood unloaded a wheelbarrow full of the letters into a postal box near Central Parkway East and Burnhamthorpe Road on Sunday afternoon.

The letter allows parents to check off topics that they object to and formally request that their child be withdrawn from the classroom when they are being taught.

“I have been knocking on thousands of doors over the last three weeks and the number one issue that was raised by the residents was the new sex-ed curriculum,” Mahmood told CP24. “These letters are how I am demonstrating to the residents of Mississauga that I am the person that listened to them, who took action and is providing a solution.”  (more...)
