On July 21, the CPoSD76 submitted additional information to the Secretary of SD76 at his request. Our previous submission on July 7th was in compliance with the proceedings of the court appeal on March 10th, 2017.
Our submission on July 21st was an attempt to work with the Board to have it meet new requirements set out by the Secretary, that were not in fact discussed during the appeal proceedings.
In regards to the response by the Secretary for our July 21 Submission:
Despite chairman Massini’s assertions that the matter is closed, and that we must “start over,” the CPoSD76 do not hold that same position. During the March 10th appeal Justice Tilleman invited the petitioners to return to his court room, should the district reject the petition a second time. The CPoSD76 are considering all options.
Way back in March 2016 I referred to the study undertaken in Sweden that is mentioned in the above link. I even told Trustees in SD76 about it. The response? Crickets. When I say Policy 622 endorses abuse, I mean it. Pushing Transgenderism on children, and forcing School Staff to accept it unquestionably, is without a doubt, child abuse. Death is a real probable outcome to lying to a child that they can change their gender. To promote such a policy, and to refuse to acknowledge the risks, or hear counter arguments is, like I said, the very definition of bigotry. Anti-bullying policies are laudable, but they must prevent bullying of all types, and can not dictate a forced acceptance of reckless and dangerous behaviours or believes. In such a case, the bullied become the bully and adherence is out of fear, not acceptance or understanding. Is that what we want our children to learn? To fear those that are different to them? Policies like 622 are not combating ‘transphobia,’ they are creating it. Except it isn’t an irrational fear, it is a justified fear that any wrong pronoun used, or out of context comment can ruin your life, as the LGBT™ inquisition will come down on you without mercy, compassion, logic, or reason. They will come and beat you into submission through school district endorsed courts of ‘social justice’. They will label you for the rest of your life as an LGBT™ ‘hater,’ make you take ‘sensitivity’ training at re-education centers, and exclude you from any prestigious higher education. These are not exaggerations, these are actions that have actually been taken against people who question the LGBT™. You have to look no further than the ridiculous accusations against me by the media. Any and all resistance must be silenced with extreme prejudice. Let’s get back to the table, and discuss a policy that provides real direction and protection for ALL children from ALL kinds of bullying.
If you think the Guidelines to Best Practices were written with young children in mind, or for their emotional, intellectual, and physical development, think Again. The ‘Gender Unicorn’ is derived from hard left intersectional (feminist) social ‘theory,’ and is written as a ‘diversity’ course for TA’s. It cares not for what is best for your child’s development, and (intersectionality) seeks to destroy the family as a founding goal. Below is a video of the actions of the kinds of people who developed it, and lists it’s use as a required course for TA’s in Minnesota.
Skip to 16:30 for the part specifically about the ‘Gender Unicorn’
In the Bible, there is a proverb which states, “Whoever spares the rod hates their children, but the one who loves their children is careful to discipline them.” – Proverbs 13:24 (NIV) Now, if you will excuse the pun, this is a proverb that has been beaten into the minds of generations upon generations of children in the west. While most commonly used in the debate about corporal punishment, there is another aspect that is usually overlooked. That of it being a proverb.
What is a proverb, and how does that change the significance of that quote? Well, for starters, a proverb, according to dictionary.com, is “a short popular saying, usually of unknown and ancient origin, that expresses effectively some commonplace truth or useful thought; adage; saw.” In other words, a proverb is a commonly understood principle or truth, put to words, as succinctly as possible. While I am sure some inane person is probably trying to figure out some way of reading into this post that I am endorsing the beating of a child,(which I am NOT endorsing,) I will actually be trying to explain the principle of Proverbs 13:24, and how it ties into Bill 10.
Some of you may be wondering how this ties into the Concerned Parents, or thinking to yourself, “Here it comes, the appeal to higher authority,” but hopefully you will see how it ties in as you read, and I am not going to argue the principle in Proverbs is true, you can determine that for yourself. I am simply going to explain what the principle of the proverb is.
The principle of the proverb, as I understand it, is that a person who does not discipline their child, does not actually love them, but in fact hates them. I’m sure some are aghast at the suggestion, but I’m sure each of you can think of a spoiled child that is heading down a bad path because of the spoiled actions they engage in. Think on what spoils a child. Being given everything they ask for? Consoling public outbursts as understandable and acceptable? Failing to correct the child when they do wrong? Putting the child in charge? Now consider, knowing the causes of a spoiled child, yet willfully committing to those actions anyway, with every child in the Province.
To use a modern term, the book of Proverbs “doubles down” on the statement that not disciplining your children is to hate them. The author states it a bit further on, in Proverbs 19:18 (NIV), “Discipline your children, for in that there is hope;do not be a willing party to their death.” The author is implying that to not discipline your child, is to be responsible for their death. Pretty strong words, but we have a modern word that could be applied, “negligence.” One could say, “;do not let their death be a result of your negligence.”
Imagine encouraging your child to run into traffic, to dive into a shallow pool, or climb an electrical pole. Obviously you would be responsible for their deaths. Sure they might make it through life unscathed, but chances are, they will not. Ok, well now imagine telling your child to go shower next to a 40 year old male stranger, who thinks they are a female.(Guidelines to Best Practices [GTBP]) Imagine telling your child that they should engage in anal fisting. (Alberta GSA) Imagine telling your 5 year old to go play with their genitals in their bedroom.(Sex Ed, Ont, BC, and you can count on it coming to AB) Imagine telling your child, as young as 12, to engage in sexual intercourse with as many males or females as are willing, but just use a condom.(Sex Ed) Finally, imagine telling your 6 year old child that they should sterilize themselves with chemical hormones, cut out their genitals and replace them with plastic, and join a community with a 50% suicide rate. (Policy 622, and GTBP)
Any adult who endorses (silent endorsement, is still endorsement) the practices listed above is through negligence responsible for the harm or death that can and does come to a child as a result of those actions. Every STD/I, every pregnancy and abortion, every rectal surgery, every ruined relationship, every life doomed to poverty, and every suicide hangs around the neck like a giant millstone of the adult who didn’t discipline the children in their care away from those practices. Alberta has a discipline problem, and it will never be fixed as long as Bill 10 stays as it is. Doesn’t matter if you are in the the repeal or the amend camp, something must be done, or our children’s future will be bleak, and full of death.
As I’m sure most of you are aware, (if you are not, have someone give your head a shake,) children are immature physically, mentally, and emotionally, and that is the reason there are minimum ages on so many activities. Children lack wisdom, and intelligence. Physical or emotional maturity does mean they are wise, or have great intelligence. A child may express wisdom beyond their years in one area of life, but that does not mean they are wise in all areas of life. They are not adept in any field, and lack experience. This is why a child starts with no responsibility, and graduates to independence and full responsibility.
In Canada, the age of maturity is 18. With the exception of emancipated minors, who have proven in court they are capable at a younger age, the parent or guardian is legally responsible for the minor under 18. Our entire criminal court system is based on this principle. This is why punishments for minors are different than for adults. Bill 10 strips adults of their authority, and turns that founding principle of our courts on it’s head.
Bill 10 gives a child the authority to tell the principal of a school that they want to start a club, and that principal is legally bound to adhere to the will of that child. The GTPB takes that principle of usurped authority, and applies it to a 6 year old telling a teacher what gender they are, and the teacher has to accept and believe the child, a child who is prone to foolishness and flights of fancy, like chasing a ball into the street. (Why do you think playgrounds and schools have lower speed limits?)
The former PC government did grave harm to the education system and our province, by ramming through poorly written legislation, lobbied by foolish self absorbed adults who wish to perpetuate their madness. The current education system, under Minister Eggen and the NDP has faired no better, and has only sent this foolish bill into overdrive. Under threat by the education minister, all the provinces school districts; like SD76, were forced to make policy that increases the power of children over adults; like Policy 622.
You need to ask yourself why any adult would want to put children in charge, and would be willing to throw a child in harms way, if they love them. This problem of adults bowing to the tantrums of children exists in every level of governance. From the municipal, to the provincial and federal governments. We need to replace, not just our MLAs in 2 years, but our city councils, and our trustees. The person, and their integrity need to be the deciding factor when you’re voting. They need to be people with the courage of their convictions, who will walk their talk. It is fear of the bully that has allowed our education system to deteriorate to the conditions we see them today. Don’t let childless, bureaucratic ‘academic’ deviants from around the world tell you what is best for your child.
Below you will find Adam Corolla explaining to congress just how the adults in the administration of academia need to start acting like adults, if they hope to see students prepared for life in the world.
Finally, I’ll conclude with one more proverb that I think not only applies to children, but those adults that have the heart of a child, and encourage the kind of coddling that Mr. Corolla mentioned.
Proverbs 22:15 (NIV) “Folly is bound up in the heart of a child, but the rod of discipline will drive it far away.”
Teaching a child that gender is fluid, is to push them to failure. It will set them up to try to accomplish the impossible, and lead them to failure, after failure, after failure. Hopelessness is what drives people to thoughts of suicide. Who would ever want to live in a natural world that doesn’t care how much they scream that they are a man living in a woman’s body. Might as well say gravity doesn’t exist, and that you don’t have to adhere to it. This is the reason suicide rates are so high among transgender, and gender none conforming. Not because of the lack of support from family and school. Not because of bullying. No, it is because they are living a lie, and are expending all their energy in a fruitless endeavor. Attempting to achieve happiness by doing what reminds them of why they are unhappy. Wouldn’t it be more prudent and lead them to more happiness to help them to come to terms with their real gender? Listen to any detransitioner, or formerly gender confused child who reached puberty. You can hear it in their explanations. The hopelessness is what hurts them the most. The lying to themselves. The lying by those closest to them. You can see the anger and hurt in their eyes for the doctors, politicians, bureaucrats, and even parents who did nothing but lie to them for years. No one who loves them would lie to them about who they are, and push them into a state of hopelessness. This has got to stop.
Planned Parenthood recommends parents send their gender confused 3 & 4 year olds to an LGBTQ 'positive' counselor.
Someone who will not question the child. Why does that sound familiar? (PP not wanting to be outdone in the depth of depravity by Canadian Sex Ed, also thinks you should have talks about masturbation with your 3-4 year old, but that is a different disgusting pedophilic teaching, which thankfully I have not seen pushed in SD76.)
SD76 – “Policy 622 Procedure: j. work collaboratively with school staff and build capacity to identify and implement evidence-based supports for students;”
SD76 – “Policy 622 Procedure: k. ensure staff will not refer students to programs or services that attempt to change or repair a student’s sexual orientation or gender identity; and”
Who cares if it is harmful to the child. We will push it on them, and not let ANYONE with a different opinion speak to them. We will lie to them, and lead them to believe they are something they are not. We will ignore science, and push dogma. THAT IS the policy in SD76. This is based on the proof written in the procedure, not the words said in secret. Proof that the policy is endorsing lying, delusion, and abuse. (Make no mistake, it is abuse to push a child into a life of drug use and body mutilation, to achieve something that can never be achieved, all to potentially avoid the possibility of a fleeting moment of hurt feelings.)
Prove to parents that a child can be born in the wrong body. Prove that there are more than 2 genders in the human species. Prove that encouraging the child to take hormone blockers ‘saves’ them from suicide. Prove that keeping this a secret from the child’s parents would help them.
If SD76 stands for the protection of these children. They will PROVE it by WRITTEN policy and procedure. They will PROVE it by allowing parents to be heard. They will PROVE it by publicly writing the education minister on Medicine Hat Parents behalf declaring that they do no agree with the minister.
“So let it be written, so let it be done” – Yul Brynner
If it is not in the districts written policy, it is not the districts position, and it would be madness to think otherwise. Just as one can not write a law, and then not obey it, so to one can not write a policy, and not enforce it. That would be a laughable assertion. But I suppose, 2 years ago, it would have been laughable to suggest a 5 year old was transgender.

Concerned Parents of SD76
Re: Amended Petition
We have resubmitted the Amended Petition which now meets the extra conditions requested by SD76.
We have gone the extra mile as requested by the School Board. The Amended Petition submitted June met all the criteria outlined by the judge in our appeal, but the Board requested we reformat a few things to technically fit their interpretation. We have now done that.
They testified in court that 30 names on the original were valid, but subsequently went back to challenge them. Although we don’t believe we were required to do so, we have collected 75 replacement names as an act of good faith.
As directed by the judge, we have submitted additional information to complete the addresses on 118 of the original submissions that only had a postal code. The School Board requested that rather than submit that information as a summary list, that we add it directly to the original lines of the petition, which we have now done.
The amended petition is now complete. The petition meets all the criteria established by the School Act as clarified by the Judge in our prior appeal. We look forward to working with the Board to complete this petition process and to be able to provide them with our concerns on policies 621 and 622.
Since the petition, we have done a lot of work with the Board, and have forged a lot of common understanding, but the Board is in a tough place. The Minister has given them direction on these issues, and they feel bound to follow that direction. As parents however, we disagree with the direction the Minister is heading. The petition, as established by the School Act, is the means to officially voice opposition to what the Board decided. This then allows them to convey that official opposition to the Minister.
We believe that further rejection of a legitimate petition by the Secretary or the Board can only be seen as defiance of the Judges ruling and obstructionist behaviour to avoid listening to Concerned Parents.
Thanks to the threats against me recently, last night the CPoSD76 website crossed over 100,000 hits after only 3 months of operation. Several thousands since the news broke. Based on projections, 100,000 was a feat I wasn’t expecting the site to achieve for another week and a half. Over the last couple of days I and the CPoSD76 have received numerous e-mails and phone calls of support, and asking me to keep up the good fight. In fact, all of them, who had never signed the petition, asked where they could sign. This was a problem, as it became time consuming to write back each person asking.
So thanks to the generosity of local churches, this Sunday is going to be a petition Signing day.

If you are unable to make the petition signing events, you can contact us, and will be do our best to have a volunteers arrange a meet up to sign the petition.
We got 1500 signatures in a weekend before. Based on the support throughout the community, 138 should be a cake walk.
With 138 signatures, parents will finally be heard by their elected representatives.
On June 20th, the CPoSD76 amended their petition. I received notice that a decision of the sufficiency of the petition had been made on or about 3:30pm Thursday July 6th. It was requested that I come and meet with the superintendent at 8:30AM July 7th. Despite the short notice, I informed the superintendent’s office that I would make the meeting.
I was informed that they had decided that the amendment was insufficient because they had rejected all 111 amended postal code signatures on the grounds that they we not re-signed each in their entirety, even though that was not a requirement discussed during the March 10, 2017 appeal. Even though the Justice said that even a photocopy would have been good enough, as the point of their rejection was that the secretary would have had to have exerted extra effort to ascertain the electoral status of the signature.
In addition to the 111 corrected postal signatures, I submitted 286 new signatures with the amendment. The secretary claims that 3 of those signatures have addresses outside the boundaries, and 1 was missing a character on the postal code. He further claims that 19 of the signatures are duplicates of signatures on the original petition. A claim that is currently being verified. Put simply,
The Secretary claims to have done not the first, or the second, but the THIRD review of the Original petition, AFTER it was stated to the Justice that 1629 signatures on the original were not contested. In his third exemplary review of the original petition he claims to have found 30 duplicated signatures that had previously not been noticed by himself, his staff, or his legal council. 374 – 30 = 344. 344 < 371.
I will not go into details on all of the errors in the two articles at this time, however I will state that neither of the news agencies attempted contact myself or the CPoSD76 prior to publishing their articles. An e-mail from MHN was sent to my personal account at 1:19PM, AFTER they published their article, and stating that they were “looking for a short, written comment to use”, to have it to them “before 4 p.m,” and criteria given by which the CPoSD76 comment must be framed. I did not know of the e-mail until 8pm. Both articles portrayed the numbers of the amendment inaccurately, and in a negative light.
Questions for your consideration:
Why didn’t they want to get a comment before publishing?
Why didn’t they ask the board why they needed to review the petition so many times if they had already done a thorough evaluation in Oct, 2016?
Why didn’t they ask the board why they would lead parents and the Justice to believe that all they needed to do to correct the postal code signatures was get the addresses, if that is not what they wanted/required?
Why didn’t they ask ANY questions of the CPoSD76, but simply want a statement?
Why didn’t they report that board and admin question the legality of Justice Tilleman’s decision to allow an amendment, but choose not to pursue a challenge of it?
A reporter wanting to get the truth, and facts would have asked questions. None were asked.
It has been 2 weeks since the CPoSD76 submitted their amendment to the Petition. Considering that an amendment to a petition had not been done before, upon giving the amendment package to the Secretary, I requested a timeline on it’s evaluation. Witnessed by the Chairman of the Board, and other concerned parents, I inquired whether we could expect the timeline outlined in the School Act. Both the Secretary and the Chairman stated that we could.
Section 269 of the School Act States – “269(1) When a board of a district situated wholly or partly within the boundaries of a city receives a petition calling for a public meeting that is signed
(a) by 25% of the parents, who are also electors, of the students in a school, or
(b) by the lesser of
(i) 2000 electors, and
(ii) 25% of the electors,
the board shall within 21 days from the date that it receives the
petition (in this case, the amendment) publish notice of the public meeting to be held under this
section in accordance with section 270.”
At this point, we have only to wait. Since the Legal Council for the District informed the Justice during the appeal that the district was not contesting any other aspect of the petition, other than what was addressed in the amendment, we need have only to wait for the evaluation. With only 400 signatures to evaluate, I expect we should hear from the Secretary soon.
A post will be made as soon as a response from the District has been received. Thank you for your patience.
