Statement on Alberta’s sexual education curriculum

CALGARY, AB (October 23, 2017): Alberta Liberal Leader David Khan issued the following statement in support of a comprehensive sexual education curriculum:

“Today, media revealed a group of Catholic school superintendents are seeking ministerial approval for an alternative curriculum in an effort to avoid subjects dealing with sexual orientation, gender, and consent, which they have labelled as ‘problematic.’

“Simply put, this is entirely inappropriate and must be rejected.

“There is absolutely no place in Alberta for this type of formal discrimination and segregation, especially in our schools and classrooms.

“Being LGBTQ2S+ is not a ‘lifestyle’ or a ‘choice,’ and there is no such thing as ‘gender ideology.’ Likewise, claims that teaching students these subjects encourages them to engage in sexual behaviour are purely false.

“The fact that these beliefs are being promoted by some educators further reinforces the need for the province to mandate the inclusion of these topics in the sexual education curriculum and ensure they are taught in every school in Alberta.
