Doug Ford, the new Trump-style Premier of Ontario, Canada, is abolishing the region’s school curriculums that feature sex and re3lationships lessons that, in turn, include LGBT-related issues. Ontario introduced an inclusive sex education curriculum in 2015, updating decades-old guidance to include teaching about same-sex couples and gender identity issues, which caused protests from religious activists. When Ford came to power, he tried his best for the reform to be abolished. Ontario Education Minister Lisa Thompson announced that the new regional government would restore teachings on sex and relationship education in Ontario to the standards first issued two decades ago. The government will also begin work on drawing up more conservative revised guidance. Thompson said: “We’re going to be moving very swiftly in our consultations, and I will be sharing with you our process in the weeks to come.”
