Byelection candidate encouraging parents to withdraw kids from sex-ed lessons

A Mississauga byelection candidate is distributing 20,000 form letters to residents wishing to withdraw their children from the province’s new sex-ed curriculum.

Ward 4 candidate Arshad Mahmood unloaded a wheelbarrow full of the letters into a postal box near Central Parkway East and Burnhamthorpe Road on Sunday afternoon.

The letter allows parents to check off topics that they object to and formally request that their child be withdrawn from the classroom when they are being taught.
