Ford government to revert Ontario's sex-ed curriculum back to 1998

Area MPP leading Tory rollback of Ontario sex-ed curriculum

"The people of Ontario can not afford to wait, and they won't have to". The government will address those issues at a later date, he said.

The Ford government cancelled cap and trade as part of its commitment to cut gas prices by $0.10 a litre.

The latest casualty of the decision to cancel cap and trade is the Electric and Hydrogen Vehicle Incentive Program.

Tabuns said it's unlikely the NDP will support any of the bills the government will put forward during the short session including back-to-work legislation to end the York strike and repealing cap-and-trade laws.

Serena Williams wins at Wimbledon, headed to finals
In the first set, the experienced Kerber broke twice while the only break point Ostapenko earned was when she was leading 3-2. The Australian's 24 singles majors remains a record, with Williams one behind. "It would be really special to win", she said.


HONOURING VETS AND POLICE: The government pledged to build a new monument to veterans of the war in Afghanistan and said it would create a dedicated hotline to help military families.

The government announced Wednesday that schools would temporarily revert to an older version of the sex-ed curriculum rather than the updated version brought in by the Liberals three years ago. Officials said they would consult with parents before modernizing the material.

The cap-and-trade program that funded EHVIP was nixed July 3, nearly as soon as premier Doug Ford took office, and while it wasn't clear then when the incentives would go away, says Automotive News Canada, a post on the EHVIP website July 11 explained the timeline of its cancellation. "To take us backwards, to take us into a race to the bottom and pull us into the last century, that's what this throne speech says to me". The Government for the People will also send a message to the world that Ontario is open for business, and it will back up that message by lowering taxes and reducing regulatory burdens.

Interim Liberal leader John Fraser was critical of the Tory's plan to eliminate the cap-and-trade system.

Trump: " See, that's such dishonest reporting ", he said, lambasting both NBC and CNN, which he frequently lumps together. Let me just add that I know Kristen Welker, she's as honest as the day is long, to call her dishonest is unfair.


Both the sex-ed and math curriculums now in Ontario schools were described as "failed ideological experiments in the classroom" by former Premier Kathleen Wynne's government.

"Some numbers - 4,000 parents, 2,400 educators, 700 students, 170 organizations including CAMH over ten years went into writing this curriculum, so anyone saying there wasn't enough consultation is telling you nonsense", she said.

"It was very specific on the small things and vague on the big things", he said.
