Protect Children

Hey, politicos, leave our kids alone!

Whatever happened to GI Joe and hopscotch?

Good grief. Our kids will all be twitchy alcoholic neurotics on Prozac by Grade 6 if Premier Mom and other political nannies don't quit pressuring them.

And what are parents supposed to do? Sign over custody of their kids? Here, Queen's Park, you take 'em!

This has been a busy week in Nannyville.

Teaching Six Year Old Children to Consent to Sex is Abhorrent

The Institute for Canadian Values has fought Premier Wynne's radical sex education initiative for years. On behalf of the 105,000 members and parents across Ontario who defeated this in 2010 the President speaks out against the latest announcement by Premier Wynne to start teaching grade one children how to give sexual consent.

President Dr. Charles McVety says "we applaud Kathleen Wynne's plan to teach children to say no to sex, we abhor the Premier announcing that Ontario's teachers will be forced to teach little children how to give permission for that child to engage in sex at such a young age. It appears that Ms. Wynne is following Alfred Kinsey's play book to engage children as early as possible."

Lesbian premier orders Ontario's sex-ed update to teach kids about giving sexual 'consent' from 'the very earliest stages'

Ontario's lesbian Premier, Kathleen Wynne, has specifically requested that the proposed sex-education curriculum slated for all schools next fall include a component teaching kids about giving sexual "consent" from "the very earliest stages."

Wynne asked the Ministry of Education to "finalize a new health and physical education curriculum that gets at some of the root causes of gender inequality, and starts at the very earliest stages to develop an understanding of healthy relationships and consent," according to a communication obtained by The Star.

Consent to be part of sex ed curriculum: Preem

Ontario's new sex curriculum will provide students starting in Grade 1 with the basic building blocks of consent, Premier Kathleen Wynne says.

Toronto students Lia Valente and Tessa Hill, who started a petition to have consent included in the new physical education and health curriculum, met with Wynne Monday.

The premier confirmed that it's a topic that will be introduced to the youngest learners with lessons about understanding facial expressions and listening to each other, and continue through to older grades.

Nova Scotia schools jump on 'trans' bandwagon

Nova Scotia public schools have joined those in Toronto and Vancouver with a policy encouraging transgendered students to the extent they can use any name and any washroom they please, male or female, depending on their "gender identity."

But an American ex-trans man whose website discourages transgenderism warns that schools encouraging trans students will have "blood on their hands" when almost half of those who go on to have so-called sex-change surgery attempt suicide.

And a prominent Canadian psychiatrist says counsellors who recommend such surgery or prescribe opposite-sex hormones may be guilty of "possible malpractice."

Ontario's Radical Sex Ed Curriculum

Now that the Ontario Liberal Party has a majority in government and no election is in sight, Premier Kathleen Wynne has "coincidentally" announced that in the fall of 2015, she will reintroduce the graphic Sex Ed Curriculum that had outraged parents in 2010.

Back then, parents and religious leaders came out angrily against Liberal plans to teach early grades about age-inappropriate topics like masturbation, anal sex, vaginal lubrication, and the idea that being male or female is merely a "social construct".

So strong was the backlash that McGuinty "shelved" the curriculum after only 3 days of public outcry.

Nationwide ban on abortions after 20 weeks introduced in House

As many as 18,000 children are aborted annually late in pregnancy in the U.S., but such babies will be protected by law if two Republican Congressmen have their way.

Trent Franks, R-AZ, and Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, introduced the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R.36) in the U.S. House of Representatives yesterday. The bill institutes a national ban on all abortions on babies who are 20 weeks or older, in order to prevent fetal pain.

"More than 18,000 'very late term' abortions are performed every year on perfectly healthy unborn babies in America," Franks said, adding that the babies are "torturously killed without even basic anesthesia."

UK internet company will automatically install anti-porn filter for 5.3 million customers

One of the UK's largest internet providers is proving it is serious about it's commitment to online safety, especially for children, by making its network-level content filtering software "on" by default, leaving it up to the customer to have to actively turn it off if they choose.

"We're all aware that cyberspace can present security risks, and that the internet isn't universally suitable for children," said Lyssa McGowan, brand director for communications products at Sky Broadcasting Group Plc, in a press release.

"And at Sky, when it comes to online safety for all, we take our responsibility very seriously and we want what is best for our customers," McGowan said.

Police issue alert after pedophile released

Toronto Police have issued a rare public safety alert after a convicted pedophile was released from prison Monday.

James Alfred Cooper, 79, is now living in Toronto after serving a 21-year sentence. The sex-crimes unit issued the alert "because of his potential to re-offend against children."

He was found guilty in 1993 of five counts of gross indecency, three counts of indecent assault, two counts of rape, assault causing bodily harm, sexual intercourse with a female under the age of 14, buggery and sexual assault.

Man who oversaw Ontario's new sex curriculum will plead guilty to child sex charges

The former Ontario deputy education minister who oversaw the development of a controversial sex-ed program before facing child sex charges will plead guilty to a number of those charges.

Benjamin Levin, born 1952, was arrested in 2013 in the wake of an international child porn sting that led to his North York doorstep. He was not only accused of making and distributing child pornography, but also of arranging for a sexual offense with a child, and with possessing and accessing child pornography.

Ontario Tories' education critic: I backed Wynne's sex-ed plans because unions told me they're 'necessary'

The Progressive Conservatives' education critic has defended his decision to support Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne's controversial plan to update the province's sex-ed curriculum, saying his mind was made up, not after consulting with parents, but after hearing from unions and various education-related groups that told him the changes were "necessary."

"I've [been] talking to a number of the unions, I've talked to the Ontario principals' council, I've talked to trustees' associations right across the province, and they're telling me, 'Garfield, we're ready to go with it [the sex-ed changes],'" MPP Garfield Dunlop, Simcoe North, told LifeSiteNews in a telephone interview.

Education Minister: Catholic schools will be required to teach new sex ed program

Ontario Catholic parents hoping their children attending a Catholic school will be spared an explicit sex-education curriculum that allegedly will teach their children about masturbation, to question their sexual identity as male or female, and about diverse family structures are out of luck.

Education Minister Liz Sandals stated on TVO's The Agenda yesterday that Catholic schools will not be able to opt out of the curriculum being forced upon Ontario's schools by lesbian Premier, Kathleen Wynne.

"There is one curriculum document, and it's our expectation that all four systems [English and French Catholic, English and French public] will be using the same curriculum document," she said.

The B.C. Commissioner for Teacher Regulation has suspended a Vancouver-area teacher who's been disciplined several times for inappropriate behaviour - including playing a Valentine's "kissing game" with students.

Between 2008 and 2010, Chung Yuk Ma - then a teacher at Vancouver's Dr. George M. Weir Elementary School - received three short suspensions, issued for inappropriate physical actions, teaching Grade 3 students a Lady Gaga song with sexually suggestive content and playing a "kissing game" with children, according to the decision.

A monster walks among us

Described as Canada's most notorious pedophile, James Alfred Cooper, 79, walks among us today. Somewhere in Toronto.

Police are so concerned he will re-offend, they took the rare step last week of identifying him and releasing his picture.

Looking at Cooper's criminal record, as revealed by Toronto Sun columnist Michele Mandel and police reporter Chris Doucette, it's not hard to see why the police are concerned.
