Wynne must consult parents on sex-ed

Premier Kathleen Wynne’s latest controversy revolves around a media conference she held to peddle Ontario’s new sex-ed curriculum, accompanied by two young teenagers, both 13.
Those familiar with the proposed curriculum have already objected to its introduction of radical content aimed at very young children, starting next September.

Far too explicit in its approach, it assigns to teachers the new role of discussing with children highly personal sexual activities such as masturbation, anal and oral sex and homosexuality.

In 2010, Wynne’s predecessor, Dalton McGuinty, dropped the proposed curriculum on the basis parents had not been adequately consulted.
