Big Brother Canada: Government Can Now Remove Children From Parents Who Don't Accept Gender Ideology

Lianne Laurence : Mar 15, 2017

"Children, of course, need to be protected from genuine abuse, but this proposed legislation is an open door for the State, rather than the parents, to control the child's destiny, and, to mold the child in accordance with the State's ideology." -REAL Women statement

Eighty-three of Ontario's 107 MPPs voted unanimously March 9 to send Bill 89 to the Liberal-dominated Standing Committee on Justice Policy.

Parents As First Educators (PAFE) president Tanya Granic Allen says it's a "shame that not one MPP voted against" the "Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act" at second reading.

"I expect MPPs to stand up to political pressure and to do their job of representing parents who are worried about the government's infringement in their family life," she told LifeSiteNews.

Bill 89 repeals and replaces the existing Child and Family Services Act, which governs child protection services, and adoption and foster care services.

It adds "gender identity" and "gender expression" as factors to be considered "in the best interests of the child."

At the same time, Bill 89 deletes the religious faith in which the parents are raising the child as a factor to be considered, and mandates that child protection services instead consider only the child's own "creed."

The bill "has real problems that could lead to the devastation of many families," said Granic Allen.

That was underscored by Minister of Child and Family Services Michael Coteau's remarks to QP Briefing.  

Coteau, who introduced the bill, said he sees questioning a teen's self-identification as LGBTQI or telling them to change as abuse.

"I would consider that a form of abuse, when a child identifies one way and a caregiver is saying no, you need to do this differently," he said.

"If it's abuse, and if it's within the definition, a child can be removed from that environment and placed into protection where the abuse stops."

PAFE has a petition against Bill 89 that Granic Allen intends to present to the Standing Committee when she testifies against the bill. But PAFE is far from the only pro-family group to oppose the bill...
