Sex radical wants B.C. to ape Ontario’s early sex ed

‘Younger children are easier to teach’ As Ontario parents gird themselves for a battle over the planned sex education curriculum, British Columbia is quietly promoting a less radical revamp of its entire pubic school curriculum across the board, sex ed included, with far less fanfare.  Some of the elements that alarm Ontario mothers and fathers are there, such as the use of condoms in Grade six, but from the general outline published so far, B.C. is apparently not ...

Indigestible

Light is Right Joe Campbell I’m a victim of textual harassment. Texts that pressure me to buy, subscribe, donate, bequeath, support, upgrade, downsize, respond and beware invade my snail and electronic mail boxes daily. Not only do they pressure me to change my life. They hassle me to plan my death. It’s more than I can stand, especially as radio and TV hucksters harass me ... (Continue reading)

Sun News Network, RIP

Michael Coren It seems a little late to be writing about the closure of the Sun News network. It was back in February – Friday the 13th of all dates actually – and it now seems very far away. It’s always the way with a major news event I suppose. Initially there is surprise but mingled with the shock is a sense of liberation and newness; then a firestorm ... (Continue reading)

Anti-sex ed rally at Queen’s Park

It's nice to see that the CBC's Mike Crawley says that a half-hour before the 11 am start the crowd "is rather large already" for the anti-sex ed rally at Queen's Park today. Last time several reporters claimed dozens when it was in fact hundreds of protesters. Liberal MPPs, including Premier Kathleen Wynne, have faced numerous protests over the government's radical plan to "update" the province's early sex-ed curriculum, and unless the government withdraws its proposal and works with ...

Analysis of Ontario’s Health and Physical Education Curriculum 2015

  The health and physical education curriculum for Ontario needed to be updated, but the manner and content of the “updating” has been dishonest and disrespectful toward parents. The process has been a continuation of the social engineering launched by this provincial government in 2008-2010 under then Education Minister Kathleen Wynne. Unhappy with the pace of implementation of its Equity and Inclusive Education Strategy the Liberal government amended the Education ... (Continue reading)

The Liberals’ desperate turn

The Liberals’ desperate turn

The Liberal Party has heeded that old adage of advertising: if you have a problem, feature it.  After decades in the ascendancy as the most winningest party in the West, they have all but collapsed. A string of feckless leaders – Martin, Dion, Ignatieff – have left the Natural Governing Party without their aura of inevitability. But their very desperation has attuned them to the weaknesses of their thin-principled ... (Continue reading)
