Last Friday, amidst fierce opposition from pro-LGBT politicians and their media darlings, Saskatchewan handily passed its flagship Parents’ Bill of Rights, which recognizes the right of parents to “act as the primary decision-maker with respect to the pupil’s education”. This is an historic pro-family win, which we need to repeat in every other province, starting with Alberta.

Alberta, under United Conservative Premier Danielle Smith, could easily pass its own version of Saskatchewan’s parental rights law. Popular opinion is strongly on our side, with 78% of Albertans agreeing that parents must be involved in the gender identity decisions of their children at school. The recent Million Person Marches across the country also prove the time is ripe for politicians to start listening to parents’ concerns.

The Saskatchewan Parents’ Bill of Rights explicitly requires schools to secure parental consent before students under 16 can adopt the woke fad of changing their “gender identity” or “gender pronouns”. That means little Johnny can’t pretend to be “Jenny” and force classmates to indulge his fantasy without his parents knowing and agreeing. This ensures parental authority is respected, family values are prioritized over state values, and students are better protected from falling prey to LGBT grooming and woke ideological nonsense.

Saskatchewan’s law comes on the heels of an educational policy review in New Brunswick that established parental consent for student name and pronoun changes in public schools in that province. However, Saskatchewan’s law goes much further, enshrining a broad array of parental rights.
