Premier Kathleen Wynne is lashing out at federal Conservatives who she says are using Ontario’s new sex-education curriculum to attack Liberal candidates in next Monday’s election.
“The Conservative candidates, certainly in some ridings, were trying to use this issue as a wedge, and I think it’s extremely unfortunate,” Wynne said Thursday. “I think it is a deplorable tactic that is being used.”
Wynne said even though Tory candidates are raising the new curriculum with voters as they knock on doors, she hopes parents understand sex education is not a federal issue.
“It’s not something the federal candidates have any influence over,” she said.
