On social media and in a speech in Regina Sept. 7, Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe announced his government’s plans to bring in a bill to protect parental rights.
“In light of some criticism and court challenges funded by out of province interest groups, our government has been asked if we are serious about protecting parents’ rights in education or if we plan to back down,” Mr. Moe said on X, formerly known as Twitter.
“Last night I answered that question,” he added. “We are not backing down. We are very serious—serious enough that the first bill we introduce when we return to the legislature this fall will be legislation to protect parental rights.”
The premier did not lay out any specifics on what the new bill would contain, and in a statement to CKOM News on Sept. 8, his office said details would come out in due course.
It’s the latest round in a skirmish over parental rights that began in August, when the provincial government announced a new policy that requires schools to seek permission from parents or guardians to change a child’s preferred name or pronoun used at school, if they are under the age of 16.
