Duly Quoted: Tim Hudak

“The notion that Dalton McGuinty thinks a priority in education is sex-education curriculum starting at Grade 1 when they should be learning their ABCs and how to tie their shoes is another example of how Dalton McGuinty has lost touch with mainstream Ontario.”

—Ontario Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak, offering what we can only call an incredibly disingenuous defence of the flyer at right. Paid for by the Tories and distributed in the GTA in the run-up to this week’s election, the flyer comes hot on the heels of last week’s transphobic ad issued by the Institute for Canadians Values, which appeared last week in the National Post (which has since apologized for running it) and yesterday in the Toronto Sun (which so far has not). (If you’re interested in the policies that govern the presentation of these issues, here is the TDSB’s curriculum and guidebook on homophobia and heterosexism [PDF].)
