The Undoing of Ontario Sex Ed

“Kim Fry was at Mount Sinai Hospital in downtown Toronto for an appointment in 2015 when she first saw it on the news: hundreds of parents protesting Ontario’s incoming sex-ed curriculum on the lawn of Queen’s Park. Then premier Kathleen Wynne had just unveiled the revised document, which newly included discussions around consent and sexual and gender identities. It was the first update to the curriculum since 1998, and many parents wanted it gone.”

“Once Ford arrived at Queen’s Park, he continued building the brand that got him there. As premier, he could finally reclaim the Ford legacy, make voters forget the humiliation and scandal that had long tarnished the family name. He was still oafish, with a freewheeling, hard-charging style. But authority seemed to temper frustrations that had previously governed his political life. And unlike at city hall, he didn’t need to build consensus. He had the power, and he seized it with zeal.”
