Ex-Ontario deputy minister claimed to have had sex with his own daughters in online chats, court hears

Benjamin Levin was consistent and "realistic" in his descriptions of sexual assault of children during online chats and never once stressed that it was all for fantasy, the Crown argued during day two of his sentencing hearing on child porn charges.

Crown counsel Allison Dellandrea read aloud several extremely graphic chat exchanges the former Ontario deputy minister of education had with undercover officers he believed were submissive mothers interested in having sex with their own children.

The 63-year-old married father of three repeatedly and consistently claimed to have had sex with his own daughters, starting at age 12 (though, as he told one of the officers, "I wish we'd started younger.").

Trudeau plans will allow anal sex 'anytime, any place, with anyone'

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's Liberals intend to implement most, if not all, recommendations contained in the homosexual-rights activist group Egale's June 2016 The Just Society Report, the Globe's John Ibbitson reported last week.

That means Trudeau will apologize, likely in September, to those homosexual Canadians jailed, fired or otherwise penalized in the decades before 1969, Ibbitson wrote.

That was the year Pierre Elliott Trudeau's Liberals passed an omnibus bill legalizing abortion, and decriminalizing buggery between two consenting adults aged 21 and over, or between a husband and wife. That age of consent for buggery was lowered to 18 in 1987.

Crown appeals sentence for Gordon Stuckless, Maple Leaf Gardens sex abuser

Prosecutors are appealing the sentence for the man at the heart of the Maple Leaf Gardens sex abuse scandal.

The Crown has filed a notice of appeal in the case of Gordon Stuckless, who was sentenced last month to 6.5 years in prison for sexually abusing 18 boys decades ago.

Stuckless, 67, was given credit of six months for time served under house arrest, which means he will spend six years behind bars.

Whitby parents continue fight against Wynne's sex-ed program

Eighteen concerned parents from across the Durham region outside Toronto rallied from noon till 1:30 Tuesday at a busy intersection beside the Durham Region District School Board and Sinclair Secondary School to protest the Ontario government's new sex education curriculum. Among them was Christine Liu, president of the Parents Alliance of Ontario.

The parents carried colourful signs and handed out pamphlets about the controversial and pansexual curriculum, bearing the subtitle, "Social Engineering Goes to School: The Rape of Childhood and Why Parents Should be Concerned." Drivers responded with positive honking and stopped to pick up pamphlets. Pedestrians including high school students were supportive and stopped to talk.

Ontario gov't tells court: No opt-outs for LGBT lessons, it's embedded in all subjects and grades

If anyone doubts that Kathleen Wynne's Liberal government will overrule parental rights in favour of its inclusivity agenda on behalf of LGBTTIQ - lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, two-spirited, intersex, queer and questioning - students and parents, the evidence - literally - points clearly and abundantly to the fact that it will, and is.

And if anyone doubts that teachers in the public school system are encouraged to bring up references to LGBTTIQ issues in any and all subjects at their discretion, because equity and inclusivity is embedded in the curriculum, again, the evidence is in.

That evidence is found in the opposition factums in the Steve Tourloukis case, heard June 23 by Ontario Superior Court Justice Robert Reid, and in which the Wynne Liberal government intervened on behalf of the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board, as did the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario.

Waterloo school board looks for solution to protect young kids from porn

Thirteen months after Jacob and Joanna Reaume told their school board trustees that elementary school-aged children were accessing inappropriate material - including soft-core pornography - on school computers, Waterloo Region District School Board passed a motion inviting tech companies to bid on fixing the problem.

Co-sponsored by trustees Cindy Watson and  Natalie Waddell, the motion passed in an amended form Monday night.

The motion asks staff to issue a request for proposals to private sector companies on the cost and effectiveness of installing internet filtering software on school devices and devices used on school property, and to report back to the board by June 30.

Wynne gov't intervenes against parental rights in Hamilton father's Charter challenge

Nearly four years after filing for a court order to defend his parental rights and Charter right to religious freedom, Hamilton dentist and father of two Steve Tourloukis finally had his day in court.

But he and lawyer Albertos Polizogopoulos found themselves squaring off Thursday against not only the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board, but the provincial elementary teachers' union and Ontario's Liberal government as well.

Tourloukis has asked the Court to declare that as a parent, he has final say over what his children are taught in public school.

He has also asked that the Court find that the HWDSB violated his Charter-protected religious freedom rights by refusing to tell him in advance when and how teachers would be dealing with sensitive topics such as abortion, homosexuality, same-sex "marriage" and sex ed, so he could pull his children out of class if he thought they would be exposed to what would be "false teachings" according to their Greek Orthodox faith.

College students' answers on gender and 'age' identity show just how lost we are

A new video from the Family Policy Institute of Washington shows just how disconnected from reality many college students are.

The video would be funny if it wasn't so sad. Family Policy Institute of Washington Director Joseph Backholm asked University of Washington students a series of questions about gender, race, age, and height identity. The students' consensus was largely if Backholm, who is quite obviously a white man, self-identifies as a Chinese woman, then he is a Chinese woman.

 

Similarly, the students agreed that if Backholm self-identifies as a seven-year-old, although it would be hard to believe at first, they would accept it.

One in six parents have or would pull elementary kids from school over Wynne's sex-ed

One in six Ontario parents who responded to a Forum Poll said they either have or would have withdrawn their children from school because of the Liberal government's revised sex-ed curriculum.

In a survey of 1,172 Ontario voters, Forum found that three percent of parents had actually pulled their kids from public schools in favour of private or homeschooling for that reason. A further 13 percent stated they would have done so if they had children in elementary school.

That makes "a total of one sixth who have or would take their children out of school because of the curriculum," notes a May 31 Forum Research summary.

Defence seeks five-year sentence for Maple Leaf Gardens pedophile

Relatives of one of Gordon Stuckless's victims are pushing for tougher laws against sexual abuse after the defence recommended a five-year sentence for crimes committed against 18 boys.

Gary Kruze says Stuckless should spend the rest of his life in prison for the harm he has inflicted on young boys over decades.

His brother Martin Kruze was one of the first to come out with allegations against Stuckless in the late 1990s, and one of 24 complainants in the resulting trial. Martin Kruze committed suicide shortly after the trial.

President Obama's Friday morning call for a gender-neutral policy in public school bathrooms and locker rooms has triggered a wide variety of responses from various sources. Officials in at least six states have threatened to defy the guidance.

And Christian pastor Franklin Graham minced no words when he penned his response via Facebook.

A Man Accused of Peeping in Women's Restroom Also Faces Child Porn Charges

Quarryville, PA, resident James Thomas Shoemaker, 19, was arrested last week when he was found hiding in a stall of the woman's bathroom in the Sheetz store on Manheim Pike. Police said he was taking images of young girls on his cell phone.

The arrest comes as progressives step up their judicial and media push to force American adults and youths to share all of their public bathrooms and changing rooms with the small number of people who try to live and look like people of the opposite sex. In mid-April, for example, Target stores announced they would only allow mixed-sex changing rooms and toilets. On April 21, media outlets claimed that Donald Trump supported the progressive campaign to eliminate single-sex bathrooms.

In fact, Trump backs the current live-and-let-live policy favored by most Americans, in which they willingly tolerate the quiet use of normal bathrooms by people of the opposite sex.

Pediatrician gets 18 months for sex assaults on two patients

An elderly pediatrician who sexually assaulted two young girls in separate attacks decades apart was sentenced Wednesday to 18 months in jail.

Dr. Arturo Sanchez, 81, "was in a position of trust" as the victims' doctor and his assaults "had a considerable impact," Judge Nancy Backhouse said.

"In the first victim's case, the assaults were persistent and lengthy, planned and deliberate," said Backhouse, who found him guilty last December of three charges involving two victims. One girl was assaulted in the mid-1960s and another was 11 years old in 1980 when he touched her breasts at her home while administering an allergy shot.
