There is a growing concern amongst parents and teachers in Ontario with the controversial s-x curriculum which is scheduled to be released through Kathleen Wynne’s government this September.

A similar curriculum was proposed in 2010 under the McGuinty government, but was quickly rejected for being overtly graphic and not age appropriate. Benjamin Levin, Deputy Education Minister at the time, and convicted child pornography, oversaw the development of this curriculum.

An example of the topics that the newly revised curriculum will teach include:

Grade 1: labeling male and female genitalia
Grade 3: the introduction and concept of gender identity
Grade 6: promotion of self-discovery through masturbation
Grade 7: the practices of anal and oral s-x

In addition, the curriculum would teach children how to consent to s-xual activity. President of the Canada Christian College, Charles McVety, made this statement recently, “...we abhor the premier announcing that Ontario’s teachers will be forced to teach little children how to give permission for that child to engage in sex...I don’t think it is legal to advise a child before the age of sixteen on how to give sexual consent.”

Article 26 (3) of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, says that, “parents have a prior right to choose the kind of education that shall be given to their children.”

Many parents have been expressing grave concern regarding the curriculum. In spite of this the government seems to be edging forward with it.

If this type of curriculum is disturbing to you we invite you to join us in taking action.

As many of you know, over the past season the Christian post secondary school Trinity Western University (TWU) has been in an intense battle for freedom of religion in Canada.

The battle has raged around the university's applications for their law school to receive accreditation by the various provinces. If accepted by a province, their graduates would be free to practice law there. If not accepted, they would not be allowed to practice there. Despite the fact that TWU has consistently received excellent academic ratings some provinces are refusing to recognize the law school because of their Community Covenant.

As a Christian university TWU asks its students to live by Christian values while attending the school (aka: the Community Covenant). This includes asking their students to abstain from sex outside of the Biblical model for marriage. Students who attend TWU do so of their own free will and agree to this covenant as an expression of their own conscience. Rather than viewing this as a reasonable expression of freedom of religion (a right granted by the Canadian Charter) some of Canada's Law societies have concluded the covenant discriminates against those who do not choose biblically based forms of s-xuality. As a result TWU has been denied accreditation in both British Columbia and Ontario.

This has propelled TWU into several legal battles fighting for freedom of religion in Canada.

Last week, after a heated legal battle, the Nova Scotia Supreme Court struck down the decision by Nova Scotia Barristers’ Society to deny the students the right to practice law. Alberta, Saskatchewan, PEI, Newfoundland and Labrador, New Brunswick and Nunavut have all made the decision to accept TWU’s law graduates. For this we are grateful.


On March 26th, 2014, the Bank of Montreal (BMO) wrote a letter to the Law Society of Upper Canada requesting that they reject TWU's application. Click here to read this letter.

Many of Canada's largest corporations including Sobeys, Ford, Kelloggs, Coca Cola and many more, have since come together and have established a group called Legal Leaders of Diversity (LLD). They have agreed to 17 ways of promoting 'diversity' which shows little acceptance of freedom of religion, specifically in regards to christian s-xual standards. One of their initiatives is "creating a more inclusive profession for LGBT lawyers and staff." LLD's mission objective is to support vendors and suppliers whose ownership or employee base reflects a commitment to diversity and inclusion as they define it.

A new website has been launched to watch this issue called www.corporatediscrimination.ca

As an act of protest, on March 4th a large group of Canadians are planning to move their money from the Bank of Montreal to another financial institution not listed on the LLD.

From Faytene Grasseschi

It was my deep honour to spend some of my beginning years in Christian work in the back woods of West Africa, Liberia. The land, the people, and what God was doing there were all absolutely beautiful. Never in my life have I ever encountered a people who in the midst of profound struggle with things such as war, terror, hunger, disease and more had such joyful determination to overcome. I quickly fell in love with this nation and it's people. ... click here to read more ...
