Saskatchewan parents are backing Premier Scott Moe’s education policy requiring parental consent for children under 16 to change their gender and pronouns at school.
The support comes as Moe is preparing to invoke the Charter’s notwithstanding clause to preserve the policy after a judge granted trans activists an injunction pausing it.
A Saskatoon father of two, whose kids attend public schools, told True North he believes “children are not able to comprehend these complex topics at their age and yet are being inundated by sexual influences entirely too early in their development.”
“My job as a parent is to protect my boys’ development and be the arbiter of what they are learning and when,” he said. “This (policy) confirms that parents are informed if their child is going through developmental changes.”
