Ontario opts to become a sewer of totalitarianism and lunacy

This is how advanced the rot is in our neighbor to the north:

Canada’s most populous province, Ontario, just passed a law that could allow the government to remove kids from their home if their parents oppose the new transgender ideology.
Could there be anything more terrifying for parents than that?
It’s not hard to see why the passage of Bill 89 captured the attention of so many across the globe.
But how did this bill—which is about foster care and adoption—get caught up in politically correct ideologies about “gender identity” and “gender expression” in the first place?
It didn’t come out of nowhere.
Ontario has passed five gender laws in the past five years, few of which received much media attention or even opposition in the legislature. Bill 89 is the latest in this litany of bad legislation.
It was back in 2012 “gender identity and gender expression” were added to Ontario’s Human Rights Code, making Ontario the first jurisdiction in North America to pass such a law.
With that initial snowball, the avalanche got rolling.
Facilitated by a majority government and a lame-duck opposition, the following bills sailed through to provincial law in Ontario:
  • Bill 13, also in 2012, compelled public schools to have gay-straight alliances and demanded schools combat “homophobia” and “transphobia.”
  • Bill 77 in 2015 prohibited particular forms of therapy for minors who struggle with gender dysphoria or other aspects of their sexuality, against the advice of numerous psychiatrists and counsellors.
  • Bill 28, which passed into law in December 2016, removed the terms “mother” and “father” from Ontario law, and permits “pre-conception agreements” allowing four unrelated and unmarried people to become parents.
All of this led to the Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act, which passed into law just over a week ago. It is still commonly called Bill 89.
Bill 89 is a child protection bill that aims to make changes to our foster care and adoption system across Ontario. It regulates the Children’s Aid Societies, which includes over 40 organizations across the province responsible for responding to child protection concerns.
The impetus for Bill 89 was, in part, the murder of a 7-year-old girlwhile in the care of her Children’s Aid Society-appointed guardians.
The new law makes a number of innocuous changes and even some positive ones to how children who are abused and/or abandoned will be treated.
Yet the controversy stems from the inclusion of language from the Ontario Human Rights Code into the new child welfare act. This takes us right back to 2012 when “gender identity and gender expression,” two nebulous terms, were added into the Human Rights Code.
Prior to Bill 89, social workers considered principles in a child protection case—principles like continuity of care, stable family relationships, and respecting cultural, religious, and regional differences.
After Bill 89, social workers attempting to assess a child’s situation must now consider the specifics of the Ontario Human Rights Code, including “[a] child’s or young person’s race, ancestry, place of origin, color, ethnic origin, citizenship, family diversity, disability, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.”
This is really happening on our continent.


  1. Is there some kind of Monroe Doctrine or is there a domino theory applicable to this, granting you grounds to concern yourself with how late it is in the day for our friends(?) to the north?

  2. The domino theory involved is as plain as the nose on your face. We already have universities and even municipalities making it legal to resist the transgender onslaught. Millions of post-Americans think what Ontario has done is great.

  3. OK, thanks for another depressing update on Post-Canada and another stab at post-Americans.
