From the beginning, Doug Ford’s government made it clear that if elected to office, their intention was to repeal the 2015 radical sex-education curriculum, and he won by an overwhelming majority because of it.
But he didn’t just win. The Wynne Liberals, the same government that designed, implemented and enforced the controversial sex-education program, without adequate parental consultation, was reduced to seven seats, which ultimately led to the loss of their official party status.
It was the worst loss suffered in the party’s 161-year history.
Action Canada runs to the the UN to bully the provincial government
However, there’s always that one poor loser that refuses to accept defeat. In this case, it’s the infamous Action Canada for Sexual Health and Rights.
Immediately following Wynne’s loss and Ford’s announcement to repeal her radical sex-ed, they forwarded an Urgent Appeal to the self-acclaimed human rights experts at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) who then responded with a communication, which described the Ontario government’s voter-led decision to repeal the controversial sex-education curriculum as a “serious breach of human rights.”
Capitalizing on the reputation of the world’s greatest super-bully, Action Canada, then released a press statement calling on Justin Trudeau to intervene in Ontario’s provincial politics.
As if the world needed more evidence of the UNHRC’s deep-seated bias, this letter from the bureaucrats in Geneva, which are over 7000 km away from Canadian soil, just adds to the load.
Action Canada is a registered charity, which makes their donors eligible to receive tax donations – which in turn makes it easier for them to get donations.
However, isn’t it interesting that the Government of Canada explicitly states, on their website, that organizations with political purposes will be exempt from Charity status? But what do they mean by “political purposes”?
Oh nothing really, just that anyone engaging in activities that advocate to “retain, oppose, or change the law, policy, or decision of any level intervene and undermine government in Canada or a foreign country” will be refused status… So I guess appealing to the UN to intervene and undermine the results and actions of a legitimate and democratically elected Ontario government doesn’t count? Right. I get it. Favoritism.
There’s no consensus on sex-ed even at the UN
Now about this “official communication.” Should Doug Ford be concerned? Nope.
Despite what Action Canada might have you believe, Comprehensive Sexuality Education is an extremely controversial and divisive topic at the UN.
Though most agree that every child should have access to education and education on human sexuality can be a part of that, the majority of member states strongly oppose the ideological, age-inappropriate nature of CSE and how it undermines social norms, parental rights and parental authority. Because of this, there is absolutely no consensus on the issue and whenever it’s brought up, it always causes heated debate.
But even if there was an established consensus on CSE at the UN, none of the Human Rights treaties are binding; they hold no legal authority in our country.
Doug Ford should pay attention to his base
Doug Ford is under no obligation to pay any attention to these intimidation tactics; they are empty and devoid of any moral or legal weight.
Rather, he should focus his attention on the opinions of the people, the parents and the families who played a crucial role in the achievement of his historic election to office.
Dear Mr. Premier, Action Canada was against you from the start. Please disregard their desperate attempts to bring back radical sex-ed. It’s obvious that they have found favor with our Trudeau government, and their friends in Geneva, but that does not make you subject to their radical left-wing agenda. Also, if you ever get the chance, please consider advocating for the withdrawal of their Charity status. I’m sure there’s a soup kitchen or a pregnancy center out there that could use a bit of extra cash…
