RENFREW COUNTY, Ontario (LifeSiteNews) — Canadian Catholic high school student Josh Alexander has said that his parents have been suspended from their jobs with an Ontario school board and are under investigation, something he suspects is in retaliation to his outspokenness against gender ideology.
On Monday, Alexander posted a tweet disclosing that his parents are “under attack,” following his own suspension last year from school after asserting that God made only two genders: male and female.
“I have been informed that both my mother and father have been put on leave and removed from the classroom,” he wrote. “My parents are under attack simply for having raised me. They couldn’t get to me so they’ve attacked my family.”
In a recent interview, Alexander gave more information saying, “This morning I found out that my mom has been put under investigation and removed from the classroom indefinitely.“
According to Alexander, his father had been removed from work two weeks earlier and is likewise “under investigation,” although it is unclear exactly for what reason his parents are being investigated. Alexander believes his parents are being attacked “simply because they’re my parents.”
“I’m a young man; I’m ready to face the consequences of my actions,” he continued. “I just really wish it was me facing those consequences. I mean they arrested me; they put me in cuffs in the back of a cruiser a couple of times, but I don’t care. I’m still fighting and that’s not going to discourage me.”
“But it’s just wrong that my family has to pay the price for that just simply because I said that God made male and female in my classroom,” Alexander said, adding, “And the consequences have been fairly significant up to this point.”
LifeSiteNews reached out to Alexander to acquire more information about the alleged situation, but has yet to receive a reply. — Article continues below Petition — Stand with Josh Alexander against school that allows boys to use girls’ bathrooms Show Petition Text 18959 have signed the petition.Let’s get to 20000!

Alexander continues to charge against LGBT activism in schools
Despite being suspended from school indefinitely for his defense of Christian teaching against LGBT ideology, Alexander continues to rally support for his cause.
On May 17, an “I Stand with Josh Alexander” international walkout protest in support of Alexander will be held across North America, as announced by Liberty Coalition Canada (LCC). The event will be held at 10 a.m. in the local time zones.
Roughly three weeks ago, Alexander officially filed a human rights complaint against his Catholic school board, claiming his “creed” beliefs have been discriminated against.
LCC attorney James Kitchen said that, “Kicking Josh out of school for expressing his Christian beliefs regarding sexuality and gender is unlawful religious discrimination.”
Alexander told LifeSiteNews last month that, in accordance with Christianity and the Bible, he believes that there are only two sexes and that this is a reality worth defending.
In March, LifeSiteNews reported that the Renfrew County Catholic District School Board claimed that barring Alexander from class is a “human rights” issue because gender-confused males have a “right” to use girls’ bathrooms.
While Alexander was first suspended and banned from attending classes at St. Joseph’s High School in Renfrew, Ontario, last November, the crusade against the young man really began to heat up on February 6 of this year, when Alexander was arrested and charged outside his school’s building for trying to attend class.
His arrest came after the school had issued him a trespass notice following his indefinite suspension, warning him that he would be criminally charged if he attempted to attend class.
