Wynne 'heard the calls' about sex-ed messaging from Peel school board chair

"I have spoken to dozens of media outlets, the minister has spoken to dozens of media outlets," Wynne said Tuesday, when asked by a reporter whether the government had done enough to disseminate information about the curriculum changes.

"There is information that has been distributed around the province and is available online. It's available to all of the school trustees and parents in the province [and] clarifies the myths and the realities in the health and physical education document."
