It’s incredible that parents are starting to be heard. According to True North, the Toronto District School Board has shelved their Student Census to review it! This census was particularly egregious: it asked elementary school students if they knew about transgender practices such as “breast binding” and “tucking”.
But this action isn’t enough: all school boards need to stop their Student Census – and Ontario’s Minister of Education Stephen Lecce needs to apologize to parents all across Ontario for the many schools that have already conducted their Student Census.
These Student Censuses are highly inappropriate: students as young as Kindergarten are asked their gender identity, and students as young as Grade 6 are asked their sexual orientation. Options for these questions include “gender fluid”, “gender nonconforming”, “two-spirit”, “queer”, “questioning”, “asexual”, “pansexual”, and a whole host of other options.
Soon we are going to drop off our petition to Stephen Lecce’s office. Can you sign this petition before the week of December 12th to help stop the harmful gender ideology in the Student Census? SIGN TO END THE STUDENT CENSUS
Gregory Mertz and the entire CitizenGO Team
P.S. The Ontario government has done irreparable harm to Ontario’s public education system by allowing the Student Census to be yet another tool for far-left activists to shove LGBT propaganda into the minds of unsuspecting kids. Minister of Education Stephen Lecce should’ve ended this inappropriate census the moment he became the Minister of Education – and he owes parents and children across Ontario an apology immediately for not doing so.
Please help by signing and sharing this petition as soon as you can – before December 12th!
Here’s the email we sent you earlier on this:
| On orders from the Ontario government, all school boards across Ontario are asking young students through the Student Census about their sexual orientation and gender identity. Children are being asked in the in non-anonymized Student Census to divulge whether they are “gender fluid”, “gender nonconforming”, “two-spirit”, “queer”, “asexual”, or “pansexual”, and even more. The government has no right to force gender ideology on our kids! Sign our petition to demand that Ontario’s Minister of Education put an end to the Student Census.|
SIGN THE PETITION
Right now, in every school board across Ontario, students are being asked to divulge their sexual interests and their gender identity.
On orders of the Ontario government, every school board in Ontario has to gather and report data on their students through a questionnaire called the Student Census.
Through the Student Census, children in elementary school are being asked to choose whether they are a boy, girl, “gender fluid”, “gender nonconforming”, “non-binary”, “questioning”, “trans boy or man”, “trans girl or woman”, or“two-spirit”.
Additionally, in grade 7 and above, school boards start asking students if they are straight, lesbian, gay, bisexual, two-spirit, queer, questioning, asexual, pansexual, or “other”.
Doug Ford’s government is pushing harmful gender ideology down the throats of children in schools all across Ontario! We must demand that the Ontario government, especially the Ministry of Education, acknowledge the harm they’ve done to parents and students through the Student Census and cease collecting this data about students!
Sign our petition asking Ontario’s Minister of Education Stephen Lecce to stop questioning kids about their sexuality and gender identity and end the Student Census.
Links to these surveys are displayed on the front pages of many school board websites across Ontario, such as the Toronto District School Board, Durham District School Board, and even Catholic school boards like the Halton Catholic District School Board.
The following screenshot is taken from the Student Census page on Halton Catholic District School Board’s website, which is an example of a survey that would be given to a student from Kindergarten – Grade 8:
The following, also from their website, shows what’s given to a student from Grade 9 – 12:
|As if this wasn’t bad enough,according to Upper Grand District School Board’s website, this survey that children are filling in is not anonymous (though they claim it is confidential). Schools in Ontario are required by Ontario’s Education Equity Action Plan and Anti-Racism Act, 2017 to gather and report this data. In other words, the Ontario government has created a system where: adults infecting the minds of children at a very young age with gender ideology these children are then questioned about their gender and/or sexuality this information is collected non-anonymously, where it can hypothetically be tied back to the student This is a disastrous system that should leave parents worried. Gender ideology has no place in schools, and we should not be asking young children if their “gender fluid” or keeping files of which teenage students are “queer” or “questioning”.|
Please, sign today to have Ontario’s government recognize this scandalous system and to stop our childrens’ schools from being infected by gender ideology through the Student Census. Ontario’s Ministry of Education must also recognize that this Student Census is a form of compelled speech. For instance, Catholic schools must survey children on their gender identity. The Catholic Church has always held the belief that humans are made either male or female (see: section 2393 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church). By forcing Catholic school boards (as left-wing as many of them may now be) to give validity to gender fluidity, transgenderism, and two-spirit (which is explicitly tied to Indigenous religious spirituality), the Ontario government is forcing Catholic schools to contradict their own teaching. Through the Student Census, the Ontario government has radically invaded schools with harmful gender ideology, and it seems to be for practically no purpose other than to collect a bit more data about students. According to Halton Catholic District School Board’s website, the overall point of the survey is to “eliminate systemic racism and advance racial equity”…what do any of these questions have to do with systemic racism? We need to put the government in its place and tell them to let kids be kids. The Ontario government is breaking the trust of parents and creating an unsafe system that is harmful to students. Parents send their children to school to learn about math, art, and science – not about queerness, asexuality, and transgenderism.
Join our campaign today to demand that Stephen Lecce, Ontario’s Minister of Education, end the Student Census and apologize to parents.
