Gender identity theory up for debate: PCs

Nov 18, 2018 by

A motion to be debated at the next Ontario PC convention on stripping gender identity theory from the school sex ed curriculum drew criticism from former premier Kathleen Wynne and others.

Tanya Granic Allen, the socially conservative PC leadership candidate who campaigned on the withdrawal of the 2015 sex ed curriculum, introduced a motion Saturday to remove the “highly controversial, unscientific liberal ideology” from Ontario teachings.

PC members attending the 2018 party convention in Etobicoke voted to put it up for debate at their next meeting.

Every child deserves to go to school in a safe and inclusive environment and to have their identity acknowledged, Wynne said in a statement.

“It is dangerous, reckless and irresponsible for a political party to endorse discrimination and tell people that how they identify themselves is not real,” Wynne said. “The Premier has a responsibility to ensure that all Ontarians can live in this province free from discrimination, especially when that discrimination originates from the grassroots of his own political party.”
