A spirited debate took place inside the Saskatchewan legislature, as people protested outside, over a bill to protect parental rights—before the legislation was even introduced.
Premier Scott Moe had announced his government will use the Constitution’s notwithstanding clause to get the legislation passed, after a Court of King’s Bench judge granted a temporary injunction Sept. 28 against Saskatchewan’s new policy on pronouns. The government’s policy would require schools to get parents’ permission when changing the preferred name and pronouns used by students under the age of 16.
Although the bill, called the “Education Parents Bill of Rights Amendment Act,” will likely not be introduced into the legislature until Oct. 12, debate over the bill took up much of question period on Oct. 10.
NDP Leader Carla Beck accused the government of ignoring problems in health care, while attacking vulnerable children.
