Premier’s daughter teaches sex-ed lesson
Premier Doug Ford believes that parents should be the primary sources of sex education for their children (NOW, August 30-September 5) and that Ontario schools should return to the old sex education curriculum.
Krista Ford, the premier’s daughter, was presumably educated under the old sex-ed curriculum. In 2012, after hearing of a police warning of a sexual predator in some Toronto neighbourhoods she tweeted, “Stay alert, walk tall, carry mace, take self-defense classes & don’t dress like a whore,” adding hashtags “#DontBeAVictim” and “#StreetSmart.” Consent is a fundamental, if not the most basic, component of a proper sex education curriculum. Is it really fair, Premier Ford, to ask parents to take on the sole responsibility for their children’s sex education? Moses Shuldiner Toronto
