Candidate, Hon. Leona Dombrowsky

Liberal Party, Prince Edward-Hastings, ON

CLC rating: evaluation pending
Caution
Rating Comments: Calls herself pro-life but told a priest she would not support defunding because it would risk loss of federal grants for health care and also because there might be rare cases where funding would be necessary for poor women whose life is endangered. Not known to have taken any actions or speak out on life issues or to make them a priority. Her campaign workers gave answers contradicting her questionnaire or verbal responses. She has been a militant advocate for openly homosexual student clubs in in Catholic schools, despite the fact that they contradict Catholic teaching. She consistently avoids giving direct answers about personal belief on same-sex marriage other than to say it is federal matter and she would not support using notwithstanding clause to protect true marriage. She carried the ball for Dalton McGuinty's radical Sex Ed curriculum and gay Equity directive which seek to normalize homosexuality in Catholic schools. She even pressured Catholic schools to accept openly homosexual clubs, despite being Catholic herself.

Explicit 2010/2015 sex education curriculum
The Ontario Liberal government of Kathleen Wynne & Dalton McGuinty introduced a sex ed curriculum for the 2010 school year that would have forced public & Catholic elementary schools to encourage masturbation, celebrate homosexuality and gender identity confusion, and teach about anal and oral intercourse. The curriculum sought to give gay-positive teaching on homosexual relationships by Grade 3. In Grade 5 children would be taught that homosexuality is inborn and cannot be changed, a claim that has no scientific backing whatsoever. In Grade 6 it would give instructions on the pleasures of masturbation and discussed vaginal lubrication. In grade 7 children would be taught about "oral" and "anal sex". Thanks to public outcry from parents and religious leaders, this dangerous curriculum was "postponed" by the government. However, once Kathleen Wynne received a strong Liberal majority and the threat of an election was past, she announced that the controversial curriculum would be implemented in September 2015. Since the original preview of the curriculum in 2010, it has come to light that it was written under the direction of a man, Benjamin Levin, who has confessed to child pornography related charges. That makes sense given the explicit, age-inappropriate nature of the curriculum. It is feared by many parents and education observers that the curriculum may have been designed to 'groom' children so as to make them available for sex. Other parties with whom the Liberal government consulted to formulate this program included radical gay activists groups like Gay Ontario (now Queer Ontario) and Egale Canada. [Jan. 2010-present]

Equity & Inclusive Education Strategy, a Ministry directive with a gay agenda to indoctrinate children
This radical Dalton McGuinty directive, written under the direction of a self-described lesbian, and then-Minister of Education, Kathleen Wynne, disguises itself as seeking to eliminate bullying and racisim, but is truly about promoting the gay lifestyle. It uses the classroom as a vehicle for child indoctrination. It recommends that all schools celebrate the gay pride parade as "equity related work", that all schools set up openly homosexual student clubs, that schools use texts written by gay & lesbian authors and instructs teachers to "modify their personal beliefs". [Ministry of Education, PPM 119, 2008 - 2012]
