Jul 21, 2018 - March for Our Education

When: Saturday, July 21st, 11am
Where: Queen's Park, Toronto

In an effective backlash against the #MeToo and gay #Pride movements, Doug Ford today announced that he is trashing the updated, well-researched 2015 Sex Ed Curriculum and replace it with the previous 1998 curriculum. Ford also CANCELLED Plans to update the curriculum with Indigenous Content. This is an unprecedented assault on students' right to a fair and up to date education and is a deliberate insult to the LGBTQ+ and Indigenous communities of Ontario.

This decision effectively prevents teachers from teaching about CONSENT, Online Bullying and Sexting, Same-Sex Marriage and Gender Identity. These are issues that can affect the LIFE AND DEATH of students across the province and need to be addressed. Instead, the old 1998 curriculum is older than any student that currently attends school in Ontario and existed well before the smartphone, personal laptop and internet age.
