Edmonton the scene of duelling protests over Alberta legislation protecting LGBTQ individuals

Failure to push back against a law giving students the right to a gay-straight alliance tells the provincial government it can steamroll over parents’ rights and religious freedoms, speakers told a rally outside the Alberta legislature.

“If we do not make our voices heard, we will find comprehensive sex ed imposed on our kids,” said Sara Hudson, a mother with Parents for Choice in Education.

Introduced by the former Progressive Conservative government, and passed unanimously by the legislature in 2015, Bill 10 requires schools and school districts to establish a gay-straight alliance or similar support group when a student requests one. The bill also amended the Alberta Bill of Rights to protect people from discrimination based on their sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.

Hudson said the legislative changes are a “gross overreach” of government into parents’ lives, and called for it to be amended.

“As long as Bill 10 remains on the books as written, the government knows it can violate religious freedoms, parental rights, and freedom of association,” Hudson said at the Saturday afternoon rally in front of the legislature.  (more...)
