Ontario reverting to old sex ed curriculum in fall, education minister says

Doug Ford has decided his first order of business will be to get rid of the carbon tax

Premier Doug Ford promised to repeal and replace the controversial sex-ed curriculum when he ran for the Progressive Conservative leadership and repeated the pledge during the spring election.

That includes the Ontario Institute for Catholic Education, which works on behalf of the Assembly of Catholic Bishops of Ontario and coordinates the Catholic school system's "Fully Alive" program, providing students with sex-ed content.

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

Megan Houston, a mother of three - aged two, four and 21 - said it will affect how she talks to her younger children about sex, mental health and other subjects that were addressed in the newer curriculum.

The government will focus on putting everyday workers and families first.

The PCs will introduce legislation to bring a halt to the four-month-old York University strike by teaching assistants and graduate assistants.

Diego Costa text "key" to Antonio Conte's exit from Chelsea
Chelsea finally confirmed Conte's departure on Friday, with Cesc Fabregas paying tribute to the Italian coach on Twitter . The former Juventus boss led Chelsea to the Premier League title in his first season in charge of the London club.


The prospect of beer in corner stores was made by Ford as one of his campaign promises.

His government announced it was immediately revoking the updated sex-ed curriculum brought in by the Liberals and reverting to the previous version of the document, which was enacted in 1998.

It will remain in place until the Tories conduct a "fulsome consultation respecting parents" on modernizing it, Thompson said. Their decision to cancel cap and trade has also put an end to a number of initiatives funded from the program's revenue, such as rebates for green retrofits and a $100 million fund for school repairs. "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".

Ontario's Government for the People is opening Parliament to take action to protect students and lower electricity bills.

Ontario's new Progressive Conservative government played up key campaign promises Thursday in its first throne speech, which also included more recent policy pledges but no new announcements. 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.
