Conservative Leader John Rustad released the following statement
VANCOUVER, BC: First and foremost, children in British Columbia should never be told by any teacher or any government employee: “You don’t have to tell your mom and dad”.
Parents raise children — not government, and we have laws in British Columbia to protect children who are unsafe at home.
I’m making my stance on Education, Parents’ Choice, and SOGI123 crystal clear so British Columbians know exactly where I stand:
First, I will end SOGI123, and I will implement a zero-tolerance anti-bullying approach in our schools. Schools must be safe for all students, and the SOGI123 program is a failure; it has become a distraction and it is divisive.
