Alberta parents ask judge to block law that allows schools to keep secret a child joining LGBT club

A Court of Queen’s Bench judge in the city of Medicine Hat is hearing 25 faith-based schools and others’ case against Bill 24, The Canadian Press reports. The plaintiffs want enforcement of the law delayed until its constitutionality is decided.

Last year, Alberta education minister David Eggen led the effort to pass Bill 24, which forbids schools from telling parents if their children have joined GSAs without the child’s consent, even children as young as kindergarten.
