Elections Provincial Voting Records

Candidate, Hon. Dalton McGuinty

Liberal Party, Ottawa South, ON

CLC rating: Pro-abortion, anti-traditional marriage
Not Supportable
Rating Comments: A strong advocate of abortion-choice and homosexuality. He has taken actions that are anti-Christian (trying to ban the Lord's Prayer) and anti-Catholic (attacked the Durham Catholic school board for upholding church teaching on homosexuality). In January 2010 his party quietly introduced a shocking sex education plan that would have forced Catholic and public elementary schools to teach children about masturbation, vaginal lubrication, homosexuality & anal intercourse. Thanks to parental and religious outcry, McGuinty was forced to 'postpone' the plan, but on September 7, 2011 one of his Ministers admitted that the radical Sex Ed program would return after the next election. With Bill 13, he also forced the Catholic Church to violate its religious beliefs by ordering openly homosexual student clubs in separate schools, as well as a radical LGBT curriculum. In 2012 his government secretly passed a law to hide abortion statistics from the public, even under an access to information request.

Explicit 2010 sex education curriculum
The Ontario Liberal government of Dalton McGuinty introduced a sex ed curriculum for the 2010 school year that would have forced public & Catholic elementary schools to teach about masturbation, homosexuality and anal 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. In Grade 6 it would give instructions on the pleasures of masturbation and 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, but remains a future threat. The curriculum was written by openly lesbian former Minister of Education, Kathleen Wynn. It is revealing that the parties with whom the Liberal government consulted to formulate this program included radical gay activists groups like Gay Ontario and Egale Canada. [Jan. 2010]

Bill 13, 3rd reading, which radically sexualized the school curriculum and forced all Catholic & Public schools to accept homosexual-activist clubs
Officially called The Accepting Schools Act, this bill which became law, forced Catholic schools to accepts student gay pride clubs known as GSAs, even over the objection and constitutional rights of Ontario's Catholic bishops. The law also injected radical sexual theories into the curriculum to be taught at the earliest grades. These sexual theories include "gender identity", the disputed notion that a child’s gender is not necessarily connected to their physical anatomy and that it’s perfectly normal for little boys to think they’re little girls; and the 6-gender theory which teaches children that there are 6 diffeerent genders (LGBTTIQ theory), not just male & female. All this was done under the deceptive ruse that these changes were necessary to reduce bullying and punish bullies. The bill also embeds a biased, anti-Christian slur into the curriculum designed to label all people of faith who adhere to traditional biblical norms of human sexuality as if they were "hateful" or "bigoted". Unfortunately, this bill was passed on June 4, 2013 by a vote of 65 to 36, despite parental protests that took place in the streets, at Queens Park and outside MPP consituency offices.
Yes bad
Bill 13, 2nd reading, the so-called "Accepting Schools Act"
This bill which ultimately became law, forced Catholic schools to accepts student gay pride clubs known as GSAs, even over the objection and constitutional rights of Ontario's Catholic bishops. The law also injected radical sexual theories into the curriculum to be taught at the earliest grades. These sexual theories include "gender identity", the disputed notion that a child’s gender is not necessarily connected to their physical anatomy and that it’s perfectly normal for little boys to think they’re little girls; and the 6-gender LGBTTIQ theory which teaches children that there are 6 different genders, not just male & female. All this was done under the deceptive ruse that these changes were necessary to reduce bullying and punish bullies. The bill also embeds a biased, anti-Christian slur into the curriculum designed to label all people of faith who adhere to traditional moral norms of human sexuality as if they were "hateful" or "bigoted". Unfortunately, this bill was passed on June 4, 2013 by a vote of 65 to 36, despite parental protests that took place in the streets at Queens Park and outside MPP consituency offices.

Bill 5, which laid the framework for the opposite-sex definition of marriage to be overthrown a few years later by judicial-activists
It allowed homosexual adoption and changed 67 Ontario laws to set up homosexual couplings as equivalent to heterosexual marriage. This bill was drafted in response to an unconstitutional Supreme Court of Canada ruling that struck down section 29 of the Ontario Family Law Act, but the government should have responded to this judicial usurpation of legislative authority by invoking the Notwithstanding Clause to uphold marriage and the traditional family. [October 1999]

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]

Bill 109, Consent to Treatment Act
This bill took away parental rights over the medical treatment of their minor children by lowering the age of medical consent from 16 to 14. This vote occurred during the time this person served as an MPP in the provincial government, prior to entering federal politics. [Dec 7, 1992]

Here are quotes from Hon. Dalton McGuinty on various life and family issues:

Rebuking the Pope for saying that Catholic politicians should be excommunicated for voting to legalize abortion and should not approach the Eucharist:  "I have a different constituency than does the Pope. I am responsible for representing all kinds of people from all kinds of different backgrounds... I think it is pretty clear that there are very few political leaders who would allow themselves and their actions to be formed exclusivly by the dictates of the church." [Canwest News Service, May 16, 2007]

On the alleged 'right' to kill babies in the womb:  "I believe in and support a woman's right to choose." [CTV.ca, 'McGuinty tries to pressure Hudak over abortion', July 19, 2011]

A disturbing speech to students at St. Augustine's Catholic High School, in reference to his pro-abortion and anti-traditional marriage policy:  "My Catholicism, my private faith, does not determine my position." [Catholic Insight Magazine, Nov.2007]

On his commitment to keep abortion legal:  "I believe it's important for a woman to have the right to make that choice, and I will suppport their right to make that choice." [The Globe & Mail, Oct. 16, 1998]

McGuinty states his desire to ban The Lord's Prayer:  "It is time to move beyond the daily recitation of the Lord's Prayer in the Ontario legislature..." [The Ottawa Citizen, June 13, 2008]
