Demand the Ontario Legislature Repeal Totalitarian Bill 89

Background on the Issue
Bill 89, or the Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act, 2017, 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This bill furthers the government’s dangerous intrusion into the lives of families and their very homes, and it must be repealed by this government or the next.

Local MPP
Call for Repeal of Tyrannical Bill 89
Dear [Recipient's name will be automatically inserted], MPP for [Recipient's riding name will be automatically inserted],

There are certain concepts held dear in Canada—the common good, freedom, human rights. Part of what ensures that from coast to coast we can aim to realize these ideals is the recognition of the jurisdictions of different levels of government—aka federalism. In addition, there is recognition of the areas of our lives that the government should not infringe upon—certain freedoms, like that of speech, expression, and religion, that the government should not have the power to remove.

Jurisdiction matters because it protects the principle of subsidiarity—that issues be handled by the local level possible—be it the province, the municipality, or, in some cases, the family. Unnecessary centralization and concentrated power strips the average person of the ability to govern themselves.

I am very disturbed by the fact that with the passage of Bill 89, the government in Ontario has trespassed into the “jurisdiction” of family life. With Bill 89, the government has moved away from democracy towards tyranny—arbitrary and oppressive rule.

With Bill 89, the government decided that parents who oppose the government’s worldview on gender ideology (i.e. that gender identity is fluid, on a spectrum, independent from sex, etc.) are unfit to raise children—be it their biological ones or ones they may hope to foster or adopt.

Christians, Jews, Muslims, Sikhs and people of other faiths who hold traditional beliefs about human sexuality will be oppressed as a result of Bill 89. Unless they conform to the government’s LGBTQ ideology, they risk losing their very children. It is hard to imagine a more painful penalty for their unconformity.

The tyranny must not be allowed to continue. Please work towards the repeal of Bill 89, the so-called Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act.
