LGBT advocates, NDP target rollback of sex-ed curriculum at Toronto event

Area MPP leading Tory rollback of Ontario sex-ed curriculum

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.

While critics of the sex-ed curriculum have applauded Premier Doug Ford for following through on his election campaign promise, many others have said the province's short-term solution - forcing schools to teach the previous curriculum which is now 20 years-old - ignores more recent developments like gay marriage and the Internet.

The government has been given "a clear mandate from Ontarians" to carry out its vision at a pivotal time for the province, the speech said.

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

Smith also denied opposition accusations that the government has been inaccessible and making too many decisions quietly behind closed doors with Ford himself shying away from taking questions from media. "These challenges, if left unchecked, threaten livelihoods and imperil public services", it said. "We intend to use legislative tools to ensure that the interests of the students and their families come first and the students can get back to class for this fall".

It further said the government will provide stable health-care funding, including a $3.8 billion investment in mental health, addictions and supportive housing.

The Kings selected Thomas in the second round (60th overall) in the 2011 draft out of the University of Washington. A problem with the same joint also knocked him out of the end of the 2017 playoffs.

The Ontario government says it will move to repeal cap and trade, end the York University strike and cancel a controversial wind project when the legislature resumes this week.

"We will strike the Liberal cap-and-trade tax law from the books and repeal any legislation that would enable a future government to impose a cap-and-trade carbon tax", he said. "I think we'll end up with something that really helps children rather than what his throne speech said today: experiments with children".

"He shouldn't be ending cap and trade", he said. He wants to keep it that way.

Ford made good on a key campaign promise Wednesday, announcing the immediate retirement of the CEO of Hydro One and the resignation of the utility's entire board of directors.

"It is just a real honour and a privilege to be able to serve Guelph", he said.
