Campaign Life Coalition, a group that advocates for legal and cultural change in Canada, has introduced a petition asking people to help protect parental rights and stop allowing schools to hide “gender transitioning” from parents. Unbeknownst to many parents, school boards in Ontario have quietly embraced directives stating that the school should withhold information from a parent when one of their students ask to be transitioned to another gender while at school. For some schools, these directives not only apply to older students, it includes even the youngest of children, including kindergartners.
Kids these days are “already subjected to gender identity theory in schools at too young an age, which can actually cause them to believe they might be transgender by producing sexual confusion that didn’t exist before,” says Jack Fonseca, senior political strategist for Campaign Life Coalition. Fonseca goes on to say, “These policies will leave young kids without the protection of their parents against gender theory ideologues.”
So far, at least five public school boards in Ontario have policies in place that keep information from parents regarding their child’s desire to transition to the opposite gender. The Toronto District School Board (TDSB) have had these guidelines in place since 2013.
On page six of their 29-page document titled, “TDSB Guidelines for the Accommodation of Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming Students and Staff” it states, “some transgender and gender non-conforming students are not open about their identity at home for safety or other reasons. A school should never disclose a student’s gender non-conformity or transgender status to the student’s parent(s)/guardian(s)/caregiver(s) without the student’s explicit prior consent. This is true regardless of the age of the student.”
All this is being done under the guise of human rights, safety, and honoring a child’s choice. Fonseca believes differently, however. He says that the school board’s decision to not tell parents is being motivated by indoctrination of the next generation.
