NDP Leader Andrea Horwath has joined a group of advocates who support the controversial sex-ed curriculum and are critical of the Ford Tories move to return to the older version when school starts in September.
The government says the 1998 curriculum will remain until a newly revised one can be put together after consultations with parents.
Horwath says this race back in time will ”only put students at risk and deny young people the supports, dignity and the equality that they deserve.
She also had a message for the premier.
”Stop catering to your social conservative friends. Stop catering to your social conservative base. Stop trying to drag Ontario back to the 1990s.”
The NDP leader adds Doug Ford has a ”mean spirited way about him” that’s creating more division and conflict in Ontario.
