Stop Graphic Revisions to Ontario’s Sex Education Curriculum

Premier Kathleen Wynne is preparing to reintroduce graphic changes to the sexual education curriculum in September, 2015. Updates to Ontario’s sexual education curriculum have been dogged with controversy since they were last proposed back in 2010 when Kathleen Wynne was Education Minister under then-Premier Dalton McGuinty. Parents objected to the young ages at which graphic content and morally contentious topics were being introduced. Then, as now, Ontarians want to send the strongest possible message to stop the delivery of contentious and age-inappropriate material to our children at school. We urge concerned parents and grandparents, as well as other Ontario voters to petition the Liberal government to drop the proposed changes by adding their signatures to this petition.

From the Fathers:

"When our soul leaves this world we shall not be blamed, brothers, for not having worked miracles, or for not having been theologians or having attained visions. But we shall certainly have to give an account to God of why we have not unceasingly wept over our sins."

~ St. John Climacus
