Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe says his government is committed to putting into law a policy that would require schools to seek parents’ permission if their child wants to change identities at school.
On Aug. 22, Mr. Moe’s government announced a policy that would require schools to get the permission of parents for students expressing a desire to change pronouns if they are under the age of 16.
A legal challenge brought by an LGBT peer support group based in Regina has resulted in the Saskatchewan Court of King’s Bench approving an injunction until the court can make a decision.
However, Mr. Moe said his government will use the notwithstanding clause in the Canadian Charter to bring the policy into effect. He reiterated his position on Friday when reporters questioned him.
