On Tuesday February 6th I shared on my public Facebook page, an article about a Father Daughter dance at a school in Statin Island that was canceled because of gender neutral policies. I made a reference to how it was more evidence that the LGBT™ hate the family. Which they do, and the hate crimes against the family continue to mount, but I’m getting off track here….
I’m sure you all have either seen or heard our Prime Minister’s ridiculous assertion that “mankind” be replaced with “peoplekind,” and then his double down absurdity that he was joking. Just ignore his past behaviour of declaring himself a Feminist, that his sons suffer from toxic masculinity, that he pushed through C-16, a law about forcing a change in language, or his demand that all Canadians swear allegiance to his party’s believe that baby murder is OK. Ignore all that. Ignore that he has since told government employees that they are not alowed to call people Mr., Mrs., or Miss., and that Father and Mother are outlawed terms. Trudeau was tooaootally joking.
We are seeing a trend. A very unsettling trend. A trend descending into madness and tyranny, and to be frank, I’m getting tired of pulling peoples heads out of the ground. Look, I get it, you are tired. You are busy. You are trying to eek out a living, and you are doing the best you can to provide for your family and educate your kids. I had a resident recently say, “We need to get these people voted out.” We just had an election, and the majority kept the status quo. The cold hard reality is, most of you aren’t helping the situation. The last school municipal election saw 6000 votes. Out of 60,000? Nearly three times that voted for city council. Are you telling me you could get out to vote for a mayor, but not a school board? I’m hearing the Catholic Board vote numbers were just as abysmal. Lets take the two combined. Do you expect me to believe that only 20% of the population of Medicine Hat has kids? (Ignoring that you don’t have to have kids to vote for a school board.) The government isn’t going to leave you alone, they are already going after your kids.
I can’t put it any other way. If you didn’t vote, you have contributed to the problem. But lets not cry over spilled milk. The past is the past, and although we need to learn from it, (which AB Ed doesn’t seem to be able or want to do,) we do not need to dwell on it. So, how can you help, and how can you fix this?
Well first, admit and recognize the problem. What exactly is the problem you ask? Well you could read through the old post on here to learn in more detail, but it can be summed up in one word. Pernicious. You see, over the last couple of years, I have struggled to find language that can get my point across, make people uncomfortable enough to pay attention, and drive people to action. The ‘left’ has done such a fine job in redefining everything from lying, to rape, that it is near impossible to have an intelligent conversation anymore. Truth isn’t even THE truth anymore, it is YOUR truth.
So in my effort to stay informed and educated on world events that will affect my family, I came across a video clip from Fox News Insider. In which Jordan Peterson is being interviewed about the range of topics I’ve mentioned above (Trudeau, Peoplekind, Father Daughter Dances, Ze, Zer, and Zem). At one point while talking about policy to enforce language, he states
“It is not compassion and care that is driving this. It is the desire to put forward a very pernicious ideology.” – Jordan Peterson
It struck me. There is the perfect word to describe the problem in our school district, and Alberta Education as a whole. Best of all, untainted by the language jackboots. But I better give you the definition before I continue, or they may have a chance to defile it.
“Definition of pernicious
1 : highly injurious or destructive : deadly
2 archaic : wicked” – Merriam-Webster
No word better describes the situation in Alberta Education.
David Eggen’s Bill-24 was/is Pernicious.
Kris Well’s handling of the GSA Network was Pernicious.
Eggen’s attack on Wisdom Home School was Pernicious.
Rachel Notley’s statements about Catholic education were Pernicious.
Alberta Health telling parents their 3 year old might be trans-gender is Pernicious.
The ASBA, PSBA, and ATA attack on school choice was Pernicious.
The deception of and lies told to parents by the Calgary, Lethbridge, and Medicine Hat School Board’s was Pernicious.
The Guidelines to Best Practices (GTBP) are Pernicious.
The handling of SCHS Washroom issues is Pernicious.
The handling of bullying at Alexandra School is Pernicious. (They know what I am talking about.)
The unjust persecution of students who have refused the enlightenment of the LGTB™ at Medicine Hat High is Pernicious. (Again, they know what I am talking about.)
Honestly, I don’t care if what I just said offends you. You should actually be offended by the obscene actions I’ve just listed. You should be irate. Blistering with intolerance. One does not tolerate if your child is shooting up with heroine in your home. That is what is happening with Alberta Education. The education minister, Guidelines to Best Practices, and the various local school boards are forcing your kids to adopt, celebrate and participate in a pernicious life of physical, sexual, and emotional abuse that will destroy their lives. It will remove any chance of them being content with their bodies, having healthy long term relationships with partners, and in 2/3rds of the education, remove any hope of having children….unless of course they take the children from the parents that wouldn’t push this pernicious life.
The parent council of Ross Glen Elementary told me a few months ago that the Alberta Health Services resource on sex and sexuality was a great source of help for parents, and that is why they were endorsing and promoting it at the school. As I told them, a resource that talks about preventing STD/Is, but then says a 3 year old can be trans-gender, is a terrible resource. (It is also child abuse.) It shows that AHS doesn’t even understand basic human biology, medicine, or pediatric development. AHS, is there by the least competent organization to be educating on sexual health.
Hitler took Germany out of the worst economic disaster in it’s history and turned into a super power. But we don’t have children read “Mein Kampf” in school, or recommend it as reading material for political office. The Guidelines to Best Practices may say ‘bullying’ is bad, and tell you to treat everyone equally, but when they say this is done by making the sexually ‘diverse’ more equal than everyone else, and saying that uncles who identify as aunts should be allowed in the change room with nieces, you need to reevaluate it’s value as a whole. I mean, it’s first version recommended that students call each other comrade. Comrade. That isn’t a great resource, it is trash with a bow on top. At that point you start over, with less self-serving individuals developing it. Evil should never be tolerated, no matter how much you dress it up. If you can’t cut the uncomfortable stuff out of the Bible, or the koran, you can’t cut the uncomfortable stuff out of the GTPB. You adopt it as a whole, or not at all.
The coming years are not going to be easy. We are stuck with essentially the same school board for the next three and a half years, and we have to put up with the tyranny of the NDP for the next one and a half at least. We know they are not above insulting, lying, harassing, and general childish tantrums, so how do you stop this pernicious direction of the government?
The Concerned Parents of SD76 have come up with a 4 pronged plan to help combat this pernicious governance, but it is going to take parents of conviction who are committed and willing to put the best interests of their children above all the threats, harassment, and general childish tantrums of the LGBT™, Alberta Education, the NDP and their (philosophical) hit squads in social/media.
The plan is being called CPOS. Create, protect, orate, and solidify. Ya, terrible acronym, but have you seen the current LGBT™ one? It has a 2 in it. So you will have to excuse me for not caring about how well it rolls off the tongue.
Over the next Month, I will be making 4 seperate posts about what exactly each prong of the ‘4orked’ plan is, and how the coalition hopes to implement it. For now though, there are two prongs you can get started on yourself.
Protect: April 23rd, 2018 is international walk out day to protest the obscene, abusive, bigoted, and abhorrent sex education that is being forced in schools around the world. (Bill-24 provides no limits to the material that your child can be exposed to at school.) I encourage every parent, who’s children are not home schooled, to pull their child out of school on April 23rd. Explain that you do not support the sexualization of our children for the satisfaction of adults with unhealthy obsessions over the sexual development of other people’s per-pubescent children, that Bill-24 is an unconstitutional violation of human rights, and that parents have first discretion and authority over their children and their education, not the government. Do this whether your school has supported the family or not, as a show of solidarity to those who have not had the ability or choice to send their children to a school that supports their rights.
Orate: Take the time April 23rd to educate yourself and others on the dangers of Bill-24, what is being taught in your district on gender identity and sexuality. Familiarize yourself with the details of your districts ‘safe and caring’ policy, and learn if it really is ‘inclusive, equal, safe and caring’. Share what you learned on social media and at family outings. The time to keep silent has passed. Leaving them alone will not make them leave you alone. Living in a bubble will not help your children.
Let people know that Bill 24 is being challenged by over a dozen individuals and groups, and that the government is trying to cross a line that they “shall not pass.”
Our governance and education is swiftly moving toward a tyrannical system of oppression and malevolent malfeasance, and we need to stand up to it, or face a generation or more of misery.
I thought I would
highlight some things that have happened in the past few weeks around the world. Maybe you should as well.
So last week, the Communist Party of China (CPC) . . . the only party in China, moved to make President Xi, president for life. Then, in a not unheard of move, the CPC banned Animal Farm and oddly the letter ‘N’ from the Inter
net. This ridiculous ness led to a reporter, disgusted with a staged news event in Chi na being stripped of her news crede ntials. This is n‘t all that surprising after all, this is Chi na, a Commu nist dystopia.
Ya, that is
n‘t a good example. Let’s move a little further west. How about the UK? Ya, tea a nd crumpets a nd all that. God save the Queen etc. After all, Ca nada was fou nded o n British pri nciples. Well, just a few days ago Laure n Souther n was o n her way to Engla nd, after wrapping up a docume ntary o n the oppressive racism agai nst the Boer i n South Africa, that by all accou nts is likely to become a ge nocide or civil war. She was e nteri ng from the Calais Fra nce border. She was detai ned u nder the Schedule 7 a nti-terrorism act of the UK. The Brits wa nted to ba n her from their British utopia, but did n‘t have a nything to charge her with. So they held her a nd i nterrogated her u ntil they fou nd out she called Allah gay as part of a social experime nt. It’s OK to call God a gay trans woma n i n the UK, but not Allah. They the n u nceremo niously ba n ned her from the UK a_d they dropped her alo ne outside the wall at 6am, i n a city notorious for rapi ng you ng white female jour nalists a nd aid workers. Her crime? Racism of course, a nd being a threat to the stability of the UK!
Ya, I k
now what you are thi nking. The UK has the right to ba n whoever they wa nt. Eve n if it is based on xe nophobic a nti religious se ntime nt. Its not like their was a massive cover-up of Islamic rape ga ngs i n the UK. Not like 1000s of girls in Rotherham and Telford were abused for decades by Muslim sex rings. It isn’t like the police were more afraid of being called racist than protecting the children. Not like they called 11 year olds prostitutes and threated the families of the victims. No not like any of that happened.
Lauren Southern may be Ca nadia n, but that does n‘t protect her from the UK’s rules, so let’s move eve n further west, a nd a bit south. After all, the U.S. is the la nd of the free, a nd the home of the brave! Just yesterday hu ndreds of childre n marched out of class, to protest gu ns with a list of dema nds that were clearly not writte n by them. This would n‘t be all that bad i n a nd of it self, but there are reports now of stude nts bei ng threate ned by pri ncipals with arrest, a nd i nsta nces of assault agai nst stude nts for disagreei ng with the protests. Be n Shapiro stated i n yesterday’s (March 14th) podcast that he was getti ng 100s of letters by stude nts that are bei ng bullied a nd threate ned for not participati ng i n the protests. E-mails comi ng i n live as he was speaki ng. The Day fi nished with a teacher being suspe nded for suggesting that walkouts could be orga nized for a nything. Eve n pro-life eve nts.
You may be ratio
nalizi ng it by sayi ng those kids were i nse nsitive by bei ng pro gun at a ‘rally’ for victims of gun violence. Hate speech does n‘t protect you from the co nseque nces of your actio ns. I’m not going to concede that point, but let’s move on. So speaking about gun’s isn’t OK, but what about Tra ns-ge nder. Surely someo ne’s ide ntity is protected, a nd they can freely express it. That would n‘t get them censored or oppressed, would it?
Last week Steve
n Crowder was told he was n‘t welcome at South by South West (SXSW is a nerdy eve nt similar to the Calgary Comic & E ntertai nme nt Expo, which i ncide ntally I was ba n ned from havi ng a table at because of my affiliation with Christians, but that is a nother story,) because of a stu nt he pulled last year where crashed a pa nel by “The You ng Turks,” by imperso nati ng Ce nk Uygur. This “OF COUUURSE” was fu n ny, but it got him a nd Not gay Jared ba n ned for life. So this year, Crowder had o ne of his employees, Sve n Computer, go to SXSW a nd crash a Tra ns meet up, as Sve n Computer ide ntifies as a computer, a nd he has ide ntified as such for well over a year. Sve n computer mistake nly thought self-ide ntity was sacrosa nct.
n Computer was n‘t violent, a nd did nothi ng criminal he was throw n out of the eve nt, a nd the mi nute Crowder tried to upload the video to twitter, him a nd everyo ne i nvolved was immediately ba n ned from Twitter. The video was ba n ned from Youtube a nd Facebook, a nd people circulated a petitio n ‘dema ndi ng’ that Crowder take dow n the video from his ow n platform … for some reaso n.
So what they came to k
now is what I came to k now last year. Self ide ntity is o nly acceptable if you also alig n with the politics of those that wa nt self ide ntity to be accepted, a nd it has to be the the right ki nd of self ide ntity. Identifying as a Sire appare ntly isn’t ‘the right kind’. As Jordan Peterson would say, they, like Hamas, surrou nd themselves with ‘victims’ (of their ow n defi ned sta ndard,) so that if you ‘attack’ their believes, you have collateral damage to prop up a nd beat the ‘aggressors’ with.
Ok, but that is social media, a
nd ‘private’ eve nts. They ca n set their own rules. Ba n or kick whoever they wa nt for whatever they wa nt. Just ig nore the wedding cakes for gay people exception. Surely Ca nada is n‘t i nvolved i n a ny of this tyranny. We are the tha nk you people. The frie ndly lumber jacks with maple ca ndies. You could n‘t possibly thi nk that is happe ni ng here!
I’ll bet you are getti
ng pretty a n noyed with how hard it is getti ng to read this. Well, I hope you are a patie nt human, as we just e ntered Ca nada, a nd what you ca n a nd ca n‘t say u nder the new Liberal/ NDP tyra n ny is o nly goi ng to make this worse. Ca nada is the place where you ca n have your kids take n from you for not e ncouragi ng them to cut their pe nis off. The cou ntry where you must swear before the Dear Leader a nd his Cabi net that you are not pro-life, a nd would not try to fix your tra ns-child. The cou ntry that has premiers that will throw you i n priso n o n charges literally made up by the police because you are pro-life, a nd it does n‘t matter if you are 17 or 70. A n i njustice that they wa nt to bring to other provi nces.
n I was a child, I was proud of my cou ntry. I was proud of the freedom we had. I was proud of the sacrifice my gra nd pare nts made to protect our freedom. The n we started slaughtering children, with no restrictio ns. A claim o nly 3 cou ntries i n the world ca n pi n o n their chest. The n came gay u nio ns. Well, love is love, except whe n it is n‘t. The n ‘sex ed’ a nd tolera nce. The n euthanasia, legalized drugs, you nger euthanasia, forci ng doctors to recomme nd abortio n, forci ng pare nts to teach kids thi ngs contrary to their believes, hate speech, ‘islamophobia’, a nd eve n acceptable a ntisemitism Now if I were to pull out a book I read i n school o n the horrors of East Germany, the USSR, or Mao’s China, I would almost thi nk they were describi ng Ca nada without the mass starvation. Ca nada’s political positio n a nd policies are hardly disti nguishable from pre-war Nazi Germany. Those same books I read as a child would probably be ba n ned now, or at the very least ‘problematic’. I nstead they are replaced with wholesome stories of cross-dressi ng 5 year olds. Freedom is dying in Canada, a nd it is because not e nough good men are sta ndi ng up to the evil that is succeeding i n this cou ntry. History will spit o n our memory as they look back at how so many wasted their time on bread and circuses, while the evil one took our childre n and put them through the meat grinder of tolerance. While screami ng at the top of their lu ngs that words are hurtful a nd viole nt, that they have meaning, and should n‘t be said rashly, they are hypocritically telling us that policies like 622 a nd laws like Bill-24 are just words. You can trust them to use ‘common sense’ when applyi ng them, as they toss another 5 year old i nto a GSA to be told that their body is a mistake, and they need to change it. All in secret, so that pare nts do n‘t know the abuse the ir child is being subjected to by ‘professio nal’ identifiers of being born in the wrong body. The ideology of the left is demo nstrably evil. Repeated countless times throughout huma n history. Begetti ng o nly misery, despair, and death. Yet, just as we had to fight and die to stop nazi/fasc/social/communismm’s ‘utopia’ in the 30s, so to I’m afraid we will have to be fighting and dying to stop nazi/fasc/social/communism in the 30s. Unless of course we get a few 1000 more good courageous men to take their ‘methods’ and stick them back in the hellhole they came from.
The truth is, concepts affirming gender confusion are far more dangerous and abusive than providing counseling to a child to act and behave as what they are. Unless a child has an intersex defect, (and even then you better have a pretty strong argument to present,) there is no justification for trying to convince the child they are the opposite gender. Saying transgender children are 40-80% (that is just how widely the stat varies) more likely to contemplate suicide, and then pushing them to become transgender and ‘affirm’ it as a means of mitigating risk is utterly idiotic.
People who don’t wear seat belts are substantially more likely to die in a serious car accident than than those that do. When someone says they don’t like to wear a seat belt, because they are uncomfortable, we don’t affirm that belief and tell them not to wear one. We don’t force everyone else to take the belt of their children if they even so much as hint at it being uncomfortable. That would be neglect. That would be abuse, and it most certainly isn’t the solution to reducing serious car accident deaths.
So, when parents see a program like SOGI, and the clear signs of child abuse, (some might say child sexual abuse, but that depends on how you define sexual abuse,) and that it is being not only endorsed via policies like 622 by their schools, but enforced under law and threat of penalty, they are rightly and justly outraged.
Parents saw the clearly abusive, secretive, and subversive program being injected into schools, and saw the deliberate lies by self proclaimed ‘experts’ telling them that what was plainly in front of them is the exact opposite of what they see. “This is about protecting the kids, and your a bigot,” was the only answer they got. One can see why parents have so vehemently fought the ‘education’ system, and will continue to fight. Children are not guinea pigs for social experiments. One would do will to prepare for things to heat up again soon. Not even -38c will stand in their way.
An interesting note on forced political correctness, and it’s link to radicalization on all sides.
Here is a fact that’s gonna sound ragingly controversial but is not, and that is that capitalist societies are better than communist ones. If you doubt it, then just ask yourself the question, would I rather live in South Korea or North Korea. Would I rather live in West Germany in the 1970s or East Germany or in the 1960s? I submit that this is actually not a controversial statement, but in university campuses, it would be considered flamingly radical.
Here’s another one. Men and women are not identical in their life priorities, in their sexuality, in their tastes and interests. This is not controversial to anyone who has even glanced at the data. The kind of vocational interest tests of the kind that your high school guidance counselor gave you were given to millions of people, and men and women give different answers as to what they wanna do for a living and how much time they wanna allocate to family versus career and so on. But you can’t say it. A very famous person on this campus did say it, and we all know what happened to him. He’s no longer, well, he is on this campus, but no longer in the same office.
Here’s a third fact that is just not controversial, although it sounds controversial, and that is that different ethnic groups commit violent crimes at different rates. You can go to the Bureau of Justice Statistics. Look it up on their website. The homicide rate among African Americans is about seven or eight times higher than it is among European Americans. And terrorism, go to the Global Terrorist Database, and you find that worldwide the overwhelming majority of suicide terrorist acts are committed by Islamist extremist groups.
If you’ve never heard these facts before and you stumble across them or someone mentions them, it is possible to come to some extreme conclusions, such as that women are inferior, that African Americans are naturally violent, that we all ought to be Anarcho-capitalists and do away with all regulation and social safety nets, that most terrorism in this country is the fault of Muslims. These are unwarranted conclusions because for each one of these facts there are very powerful counterarguments for why they don’t license racism and sexism and Anarcho-capitalism and so on…
Now let’s say that you have never even heard anyone mention these facts. The first time you hear them, you’re apt to say, number one, the truth has been withheld from me by universities, by mainstream media, and, moreover, you will be vindicated when people who voice these truths are suppressed, shouted down, assaulted, all the more reason to believe that the Left, that the mainstream media, that universities can’t handle the truth. So, you get vindicated over and over again, but, worst of all, you’re never exposed to the ways of putting these facts into context so that they don’t lead to racism and sexism and extreme forms of Anarcho-Libertarianism. So, the politically correct Left is doing itself an enormous disservice when it renders certain topics undiscussable, especially when the facts are clearly behind them because they leave people defenseless the first time they hear them against the most extreme and indefensible conclusions possible. If they were exposed, then the rationale for putting them into proper political and moral context could also be articulated, and I don’t think you would have quite the extreme backlash.”
– Steven Pinker
Earlier this week Steven Crowder did an honest “There are only 2 Genders. Change my mind” segment. This was the 3rd time he has done a video like that. About 2 weeks ago during the heat of the SCHS bathroom issue, I posed this same question to a Father who’s children attend SCHS. My conversation, went about the same…
Below is my conversation on facebook. Click on the photo to read. (Left to right, top to bottom.)
I did. When speaking to James Wood from CHAT News on September 29th, 2017.
“[Eggen] seems to be on an agenda to exclude parents from knowing what their kids are doing at school,” said Williamson.
“That’s a violation of the U.N Charter of Human Rights. Parents have a prior right to choose the education for their children. Canada is a signatory on that charter, so to go back, independently as Alberta, and say parents no longer have a prior right to know, I think it will probably get challenged. He might pass laws, but it wouldn’t be very long before they got challenged in court.”
Link to full copy of Bill-24
On Thursday, Eggen slapped out his “will someone not think of the gays!” legislation. Even calling it the Kenney bill. Claiming that his proposed legislation would protect children from those abusive intolerant parents that permeate every corner of society. Never giving factual information on numbers of students that are actually abused by their parents for their sexuality. Never defining what he considers abusive behaviour. Never actually reporting those situations to police or child services, (which is the law,) and believing every story shared with a dozen “FWD::”s in front of it. Facts, evidence, and the truth don’t fit into his narrative.
In fact, truth seems to be the biggest issue he and Notley have trouble with. We’ve been told for two years that GSA are supportive groups that save lives, but when it was discovered the the material at these ‘clubs’ was about pushing sexual fetishes, and a work around for the “opt out clause;” with materials that included how to have safe anal fisting sessions with your partner, pantyhose parties, and sponsoring of drag reading sessions, total silence from Eggen. Parents were rightly outraged.
Parents then rightly demanded that they be told if their child was attending these ‘sex ed’ clubs. Under section 50 of the Alberta School Act, parents had the right to opt their children out of ANY sexual material at school. Well, then the Eggen/Notley outrage machine respond, and said “you are wanting to out gays to their parents, you horrible human beings!” The preposterous absurdity of that argument was clearly evident in the very name of the sex clubs, “Gay Straight Alliance.” A name they now want to protect under the law.
(c) by adding the following after subsection (3):
(3.1) For greater certainty, the principal shall not prohibit or discourage students from choosing a name that includes “gay straight alliance” or “queer-straight alliance”.
Imagine if a Catholic group demanded that they be allowed to have a club in school called “The Salvation of Lost Souls,” and that name was forced without consent, by law, or else legal consequences would follow?
So after it was discovered that Albertan’s weren’t buying there thinly veiled cover over the sex clubs that had pornography, and how to pay for sex, as supportive ‘resources,’ they set their phasers to kill; got their media lapdogs to dig up the ‘proposed’ Catholic Sex Ed curriculum, cut and pasted sentences together in the Ministry of Truth editorial room, and screamed, through the premier herself, that Catholics want to teach Rape.
Wrapped up in the feigned outrage over a non-existent proposal within the Catholic curriculum, Notley her self said, AND I QUOTE: “Parents have the right — and they have had the right for a very, very long time — to pull their kids from curriculum and education around sexual health. And they will continue to have that right.”
She said that on October 24th. 10 days ago. She must think Albertan’s have exceptionally short memories, because yesterday, her Minister of Education tabled legislation that revokes that right, and proves without a shadow of a doubt that GSA’s are about instructing on sex.
From the proposed legislation:
9 Section 50.1 is amended by adding the following after subsection (3):
(4)For greater certainty, this section does not apply with respect to the establishment or operation of a voluntary student organization referred to in section 16.1 or the organizing or holding of an activity referred to in section 16.1.
7 Explanatory Notes
8 Exemption from section 45.1; application of investigation, inquiry provisions.
9 Section 50.1 presently reads:
50.1 (1) A board shall provide notice to a parent of a student where courses of study, educational programs or instructional aterials, or instruction or exercises, include subject-matter that deals primarily and explicitly with religion or human sexuality.
(2) Where a teacher or other person providing instruction, eaching a course of study or educational program or using the instructional materials eferred to in subsection
(1) receives a written request signed by a parent of a student that the student be excluded from the instruction, course of study, educational program or use of instructional materials, the teacher or other person shall in accordance with the request of the parent permit the student, without academic penalty,
(a) to leave the classroom or place where the instruction, course of study or educational program is taking place or the instructional materials are being used for the duration of the part of the instruction, course of study or educational program, or the use of the instructional materials, that includes the subject-atter referred to in subsection (1), or 2
Section 16.1 presently reads:
16.1(1) If one or more students attending a school operated by a board request a staff member employed by the board for support to establish a voluntary student organization, or to lead an activity intended to promote a welcoming, caring, respectful and safe learning environment that respects
diversity and fosters a sense of belonging, the principal of the school shall
(a) permit the establishment of the student organization or the holding of the activity at the school, and
(b) designate a staff member to serve as the staff liaison to facilitate the establishment, and the ongoing operation, of the student organization or to assist in organizing the activity.
(2) For the purposes of subsection (1), an organization or activity includes an organization or activity that promotes equality and non-discrimination with respect to, without limitation, race, religious belief, colour, gender, gender identity, gender expression, physical disability, mental disability, family status or sexual orientation, including but not limited to organizations such as 2
(d) by adding the following after subsection (5):
(6) The principal is responsible for ensuring that notification, if any, respecting a voluntary student organization or an activity referred to in subsection (1) is limited to the fact of the establishment of the organization or the holding of the activity.
If GSA’s are not about instructing on sex and sexuality, then there would be no need to exempt them from section 16.1. If parents continued to have the right to opt out their children from sexual instruction, than there would be no exceptions for GSAs. Let me remind you, that the GSAs and their ‘resources’ have been caught teaching about transgenderism to 5 year olds, that they have had dozens of links to sexually explicit material on the GSA network, and that they have handed out pamphlets on how to have safe anal fisting sessions. (Something literally impossible to do safely.)
This is what Eggen’s proposed legislation ACTUALLY produces. Children are being harmed, in real life cases.
This kind of legislation is a pedophiles dream! We already know that sexual predators seek out positions where they can enact their fantasies, and we know that secrecy is their best ally. Now all they have to do is volunteer to be the organizer of the GSA. No standards of criteria, or expertise necessary. It is demonstrably clear the GSAs are being used to promote sexuality, and sexual education, otherwise why would they be exempt from the requirement of allowing a parent to opt out their child? If GSAs are not a wing of Alberta Education, a ‘class’ if you will, than why must the schools provide a staff member to run the ‘club’? Make no mistake, Eggen intends to use GSAs as a way of teaching his and his buddy’s(Wells) idea of sexuality. And he doesn’t care who gets hurt in the process.
Earlier in the week Premier Notley said “… under no circumstances will we enforce or condone a sexual health curriculum that normalizes an absence of consent,” but did not provide a reference to what she took issue with in the proposed Catholic Curriculum. As was discovered after her statements, this was because there was nothing in the curriculum to have given her the impression that absence of consent was being taught.
Last Wednesday the 25th, I shared on my facebook page Jason’s Kenney’s defense of the Catholic Curriculum, and I mentioned how Notley had brought up consent, and I wished for some clarification from her on what idea of consent should be taught. I’ve since spent the better part of a week reading comments of hate for Catholic Education, and rebutting accusations that I was spreading fake news. The premier of Alberta can insinuate that Catholic’s want to teach that rape is OK, based on literally nothing, but ask her to explain her idea of ‘consent’ and suddenly, you are the bad guy.
Why is Notley’s idea of consent important? Well during the brouhaha, Notley also said “Parents have the right — and they have had the right for a very, very long time — to pull their kids from curriculum and education around sexual health. And they will continue to have that right.” I found that statement interesting, as it is clearly not true, and her own government is working on removing a parents right to know. CHAT wanted to make sure that was very clear during municipal elections. It also seems interesting that Notley brought up ‘opt-out’ while talking about ‘consent.’ Parental consent seems to be important enough to her definition to bring it up at the same time.
It is very clear that Notley and the NDP have a completely different idea of what consent means, after all, she thinks the Catholic’s idea is that it is ok to force your spouse. What does she base that on? Clearly not anything written in the proposed catholic curriculum. She also doesn’t think parental consent for 5-17 year old’s is necessary to instruct kids on things as complex as transgenderism, Eggen is planning to put that all through the curriculum, so opting out is no longer going to be an option. So how does Notley define consent? Who gets to give it? According to Eggen, the student. (IE the CHILD) Is Notley’s idea the same as Eggen’s? We are left only to speculate. Well, let’s hope it doesn’t line up with Sweden’s. After all, Sweden’s is the holy grail of tolerance and diversity. (A couple of other words that Notley needs to define her understanding of.)
I’ve taken a few days since the election to rest, and collect my thoughts. Obviously I am disappointed that I was not selected to represent your values and interests to Alberta Education. Although 2435 votes is nothing to shake a stick at, the simple fact is that I didn’t get the necessary votes. Considering the highest voted board member got 5585, I do think that is a significant voice. A 43.6% voice when compared to the the highest vote. More than enough votes to ..cough.. get a petition accepted.
So the question is, “Where do we go from here?” Policy 621 still expects children to obey the school code of conduct at home, and will punish any teacher that will not report alleged violations. Policy 622 still puts children at risk by refusing to tell the children the truth about the health risks of transgenderism, and the obvious fallacies and lies of gender identity politics.
We know that, at least at present, 622 also ignores the law, and willfully and intentionally applies an illegal idea of confidentiality between students and teachers as young as 5. We also know that the newly elected trustees advocated that they were just following a non-existent law, that Minister David Eggen has as yet not even tabled in legislature. We know that newly elected trustees consider parents to be fear mongers, and that according to at least one of the trustees, who stated this publicly to about 200 people, charter and home schooling is the reason public education is falling behind.
Given that a majority of the elected trustees spoke of how they were going to ask the children how they think they should be educated, and that “you[the children] know best what you need.” Given that 99.9% of the people I spoke to during the campaign were not in favour of the direction of public education, and are not secretly trying to undermine public education by homeschooling or sending their kids to private school. Given the tenuous definition expressed during the campaign of what constitutes bullying. It appears to me that parents concerns have not be calmed. If anything, it appears like they have been amplified, and are not likely to be dealt with, unless someone mediates for them. The irony is, that is what the Board is supposed to do.
During the course of the campaign, I heard a number of alarming stories of concerns being ignored. One such story played out at the ATA Forum, with a mother asking how to contact the board, since when she had a question about placing her special needs child, the only response she got was “this isn’t Wallmart.” I can only speculate as to what that response was supposed to mean, or what the whole context was, but what I did learn, was that parents with concerns over 621 and 622, are not the only parents who have been exasperated by the system.
Like I’ve stated many times before, my role has always been about bringing parents concerns to the board, and making sure they are genuinely heard. making sure communication is open, transparent, and honest. That is why I submitted the petition, that is why I took it to court, that is why I set up this website and made it available for anyone to contribute, and that is why I ran for School Board.
Some have disagreed with my methods. Some have even been angry, and lashed out, but here is harsh truth. Facts don’t care about feelings. The fact is, there are some serious problems with district policy and procedures. There are some serious problems with how special needs children are being ‘included’ in classes. There are some serious problems with bullying and the definition and understanding of bullying, and there are some serious problems with the extent of fiduciary duty. These problems are not going to be fixed by attacking the people who bring them up, and they will not be fixed by changing laws so that people can no longer talk or know about them.
What can fix the problems, is openly and fairly talking about them. What can fix them is educating schools and councils on what their roles are. What can fix them is working with parents, and allowing them to be included.
So that brings me to what I plan on doing next. Yes, I do plan on continuing to attend the regular public board meetings, (at least for the near future.) The next one is tomorrow, the 24th of October @6pm by the way. Would be nice to see some others come out. (I’ll post the agenda separately.) Beyond the board meetings and their summaries, I’ll be making some changes to the CPoSD76 site over the next few weeks.
With the help of some of the other concerned parents, we will be moving into a more of an advocacy role. I will follow up with some of the individuals who I spoke with that had concerns, and see if the CPoSD76 can’t work with them to see some kind of resolution to the issues between them and the Board. I will also be putting up forms, where electorate can submit issues/concerns that they feel have note been resolved, or adequately addressed by the district. There may possibly also be guides setup to help parents and school councils understand school policies, and the appropriate channels they need to follow, as well as knowing the limits of school authority and parental responsibility.
The next four years will be about holding the board accountable, helping parents navigate the system, and making sure parents stay up to date with the direction of the district and Alberta Education as a whole.

Parents for Choice in Education (PCE) has released a survey asking key question of candidates for school board in October 2017’s Municipal Elections. How the candidates answer those questions will provide key information to electorate on where all candidates stand on the education issues that are at the forefront of the coming election.
The CPoSD76 will be doing profiles on all candidates who put their names forward on Sept 18th, and giving an A to F grade on if the CPoSD76 endorse that candidate for the position of Trustee in the Medicine Hat Public School District. In order for a Candidate to have a passing grade, they must at a minimum have completed and returned the PCE survey.
The CPoSD76 are of the position that if any candidate can not fill out the survey, and provide direct and honest answers to the questions most concerning to electorate in Medicine hat, then they will receive an ‘F’ on their profile.
The CPoSD76 would also like to thank PCE for providing electorate all across Alberta with the tools they need to make informed decisions on who they will put in Fiduciary charge of their children.
Our children are the future, and giving them the best possible education and the most prosperous future are the most important goals for parents.
