Wynne: Consultation on sex ed was ‘biggest in Ontario’s history,’ backlash is based on ‘absence of information’

her explicit sex ed program
MISSISSAUGA, March 27, 2015 ( -- After attempting to explain her controversial sex-ed curriculum to an estimated 250 angry parents protesting outside Mississauga’s Verdi Hospitality Centre last night, Ontario Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne then justified the curriculum to representatives of the ethnic media.

While the crowd outside Mississauga’s Verdi Hospitality Centre chanted, “We say no!” and “Resign! Resign! Resign!” Wynne told attendees at a media meet and greet that “We consulted with parents, teachers, students, medical professionals and curriculum experts about how to update this curriculum,” according to Mississauga News reporter Graeme Frisque. Wynne stated this had been “the biggest curriculum consultation in Ontario’s history.”

“That’s completely false,” says Progressive Conservative MPP Monte McNaughton, who told LifeSiteNews in a telephone interview that “parents have been completely left out of this process.”

Wynne told the ethnic media that the “updated curriculum gives children age-appropriate information about online safety, consent and healthy relationships.” She added, “The protest outside and the protests that are happening right now, I believe to some extent are happening in the absence of information.”

But McNaughton, who is running for leadership of Ontario’s PC party, and is the father of a toddler daughter, said parents know what’s best for their kids.  (more...)
