Demand the Ontario Legislature Repeal Totalitarian Bill 89

Bill 89, or the Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act, 2017, recently passed by a vote of 63 to 23 on June 1 at Queen’s Park.

It allows the state to potentially take away children from parents who do not adopt the Liberal government’s delusional gender ideology and, in effect, it prevents couples who also reject this ideology from adopting or fostering children. While “gender identity” and “gender expression” are added as factors to be considered “in the best interests of the child,” no longer will the religious faith in which the parents are raising the child be considered as a factor. This bill furthers the government’s dangerous intrusion into the lives of families and their very homes, and it must be repealed by this government or the next.

Dear M.P.P. [Recipient's name will be automatically inserted],

Though I have found the new Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act to be troubling for a number of reasons, I wish to draw attention to one in particular.

Whereas both the former and the new Act list that the manner that services are provided should respect “a child’s need for continuity of care and for stable relationships within a family and cultural environment” the Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act adds that it should also respect “a child’s or young person’s race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, family diversity, disability, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.”

Though those characteristics may indeed be important to one’s sense of identity, one’s membership in a group defined by any of these characteristics (e.g. being Indian, brown, female, etc.) comes second to one’s membership in a family. There is a reason why the family is referred to as the basic unit of society—it is more intimate, more influential, more fundamental than any identity or organization that follows after it, and the place in which children best thrive.

The addition of this list of ‘identity groups,’ I believe, indicates the change in direction of the whole act. Potentially divisive group rights are placed before family rights—children may be parted from their parents if they identify as a member of the LGBTQ community and the parents are not deemed sufficiently accepting of this lifestyle.

That’s dangerous and I oppose Bill 89 because it will harm children and families. I hope you, our Member of Provincial Parliament for [Recipient's riding name will be automatically inserted], will choose to stand with me, and call publicly for the repeal of Bill 89.
