Press Room

ETFO press conference an “example of the elites vs. the people”, says parental rights group

Toronto, September 4, 2018 – The results of an Ipsos-Reid poll were released this morning which found that a majority of Ontarians, 51%, support Premier Ford’s decision to repeal Kathleen Wynne’s age-inappropriate sex curriculum. On the same day, the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario (ETFO) held a press conference announcing it submitted a request for judicial review asking a court to block Ford’s repeal of the Wynne sex program. The ETFO said it will also intervene in a complaint to the human rights tribunal, again seeking to block Doug Ford’s sex ed repeal.              

“We urge Premier Ford to draw the battle line. Make a public announcement that he won’t allow parental rights to be usurped by union elites, and that if necessary, his government will invoke the Activist-Judge Override Clause contained in Section 33 of the Charter”, said Jeff Gunnarson, Vice President of CLC. “Additionally, Ford ought to implement a past campaign promise from former PC Leadership candidate, MPP Randy Hillier, so as to prevent the misuse of the Ontario Human Rights Commission as a political tool for the purpose of stopping the repeal."

The OHRC ceased long ago being a defender of genuine human rights. It now serves primarily to advance liberal ideology, which in fact, replaces real human rights with fake ones. “The OHRC needs to be abolished,” added Jeff Gunnarson.
