“According to a June 1 letter ICE sent to the directors of education in Catholic boards, a group of writers will prepare resources through the summer, as coordinated by Cathy Horgan, formerly the director of the Brant Haldimand Norfolk Catholic District School board”
Horgan is on the Board of Governors for St Jerome’s University (UWaterloo). In 2 weeks, she becomes Chair
Education Minister Liz Sandals stated on TVO’s The Agenda yesterday that Catholic schools will not be able to opt out of the curriculum being forced upon Ontario’s schools by lesbian Premier, Kathleen Wynne.
“There is one curriculum document, and it’s our expectation that all four systems [English and French Catholic, English and French public] will be using the same curriculum document,” she said.
Sandals said that while the Catholic school system will be able to provide “commentary” on the government-mandated sex-ed through its own family life program, it won’t be allowed to change anything and must “deliver” the sex-ed as written.
Now the latest update from the Institute shows that they will be teaching 100% of the sex ed curriculum (sex ed mechanics, gay families, gender identity weirdness etc.) They will just providing a bit of “through a Catholic lens” or context and some student teacher prompts.
Expect some to be like this:
1) “Children, we all know that the Catholic faith teaches about the dignity of the person and the importance of the family… Well, let’s learn about Johnny having 2 Moms!”
2) “Children, we know about the dignity of the person and we don’t want any of you to get sick or hurt…so let’s talk about condoms and how to have safer anal sex”
“The intention is to provide materials that will assist elementary teachers to deliver all general and specific expectations of the Human Development and Sexual Health component..”
“Materials will include appropriate examples and teacher prompts to correspond with each expectation, and will include ‘supplements’ to the teacher resource binders for each grade, grades 1-8 of the Fully Alive series, allowing teachers to seamlessly integrate these supports into their existing Fully Alive teacher resources.”
“Communication materials to introduce the curriculum expectations and demonstrate linkages between Health and Physical Education, Grades 1-8 and Grades 9-12, the Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations, the Family Life Education curriculum, Fully Alive, and other Catholic resources.
Materials will include parent pamphlets, brochures, and guides for working with parents and community stakeholders.”
—- WHAT A DISASTER this will be! Genderbread men, etc etc
Instead of spending time teaching children things like Reading and Writing and Arithmetic, the OCSB spends a day making children feel bad about others in poverty and then getting the children to think they have come up with ideas to stop poverty (however, these ideas have been fed into them by the leftist groups running KTP and are always identical to KTP pushes).
KTP is really just the CTF Teachers unions and folks like the son of Ed Broadbent (fmr NDP leader) and also bunch of sycophants of June Callwood.
None of the ideas from the leaders (or, non coincidentally, the children) are things like reducing corporate taxes to get more people working, or reducing hydro rates to keep factories in Ontario, or or reducing government/school wages and benefits so taxes could go down and help everyone, or to push resource development to get more work for parents.
Nope, the ideas are about more union jobs in a universal childcare program, healthy food for children (do they want the govt to mandate what parents can buy?), increased minimum wage etc
KTP is tied in tightly with this partisan NDP motion:
The Grade 7 and 8 students in room 206 at Duke of Connaught Public School, Toronto, created a video to encourage anti-poverty Twitter advocacy using strategic hashtags. Join them by tweeting these hashtags:
#raisethewagecanada – raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour
#youthfueledbyfoodcanada – nutritious food available to kids
#care4kidscanada – affordable child care plan
#saveaboriginalyouthcanada – safe water, proper housing and poverty relief for aboriginal communities
#afford2livecanada – affordable housing options
Parents: Do not allow your children to participate in KTP days. The Canadian Teachers Federation (ie. union) should not be providing biased “curriculum” into schools. Take the time to search around the KTP website and you will be disgusted.
OCSB: Shame on you for brainwashing children in this manner.
Mr White’s disgusting comment is shameful. Comparing human offspring (Fetus is latin for offspring) to chicken eggs? (Also, on a strictly scientific note, eggs sold in stores are unfertilized – there are no roosters in egg hatcheries)
The Catholic Intelligence Association is calling for a FULL investigation of this matter. Teachers should not be making comments (jokes?) about abortion – one of the greatest social justice isues of our time!

Host: An email was sent to us from the Ottawa region. “As a gay [man] and as a priest of the Archdiocese of Ottawa, I am upset at the visit of this person. I particularly blame those who invited him, the CCO Movement, Catholic Christian Outreach —who seek to provoke and to distance themselves from the current pope. The resistance towards Pope Francis has regrouped themselves around this operetta Cardinal who likes to disguise himself as a drag queen. I know well today’s youth because I’ve taught at the University of Ottawa for the last sixteen years. I can affirm that Burke will have more success at Mado [CIA Note: a drag queen bar] than with the university students that CCO looks to convert.” That was a listener by the name of Mr. Samson who does not beat around the bush. // Minute 5:49-6:30
In the light of such teaching, this Dicastery, in accord with the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, believes it necessary to state clearly that the Church, while profoundly respecting the persons in question, cannot admit to the seminary or to holy orders those who practise homosexuality, present deep-seated homosexual tendencies or support the so-called “gay culture”.
Does the Archdiocese think one of its priests should call a Cardinal a drag queen on CBC? Does the Archdiocese believe that this priest should be at a university interacting with young Catholic men and women? What is he teaching them about the Catholic faith?
The Catholic Intelligence have long had problems with Elaine McMahon being chair of the OCSB. What were fellow trustees thinking when they elected a rookie trustee (and former local OECTA head) CHAIR when they Board was heading into negotiations?? Poor judgement!
Now we find out that McMahon needs to recuse herself from a large part of the OCSB duties – that is to negotiate a contract on behalf of taxpayers!
