Ford repealing sex-ed curriculum to cater to social conservatives: Horwath Ford repealing sex-ed curriculum to cater to social conservatives: Horwath

Progressive Conservative House Leader Todd Smith says the government will act quickly on all three items because of they are time-sensitive and can not wait until the fall, when the house normally returns.

Cap and trade funded a long list of programs which included things like cycling infrastructure, school repairs, and the incentives to boost the sale of electric and hydrogen vehicles.

This will be the first sitting of the new government led by Doug Ford, whose Tories won a large majority of seats in the spring election.

Although Ford calls sex-ed a "failed ideological experiment" and promised to repeal sex-ed to secure the support of social conservatives during this year's Ontario PC leadership race, mainstream Catholic educators say Ford's decision to revert to an outdated 20-year-old sex-ed curriculum will harm students instead. It said the move is discriminatory against LGBT people, "who are harmed by the stigmatization and degradation caused by the removal of education content" regarding LGBT issues.

Roza Nozari, anti-violence initiatives co-ordinator at LGBT advocacy group The 519, said the Tories have sent a "clear message" to LGBT youth and families that they aren't accepted and don't matter. "We're prepared to act".

The Speech from the Throne, delivered today by the Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, officially opened the 42nd Parliament and set out the government's plan to put the people first. "I think it's deeply disappointing and I think it actually contradicts what Conservatives campaigned on", Schreiner told GuelphToday by phone after the speech.

With other promises from the government like scrapping the sexual education curriculum introduced by the previous Liberal government in 2015 and cancelling putting a price on pollution, Schreiner said he his biggest concern is that the new government is declaring war on the modern world. I was given one exemption.

"Your new government believes that no dollar is better spent than the dollar that is left in the pockets of the taxpayer", the speech says, signalling a sharp turn from the previous Liberal "activist centre" government. "It's a signal not only that he doesn't care about climate change but that he doesn't care about investing in Ontario, dealing with our energy needs and dealing with the needs in a our schools".
