Canadian Teachers Union Leading the Way on LGBT Issues

Omaha Steve found this and posted it to Labor forum yesterday. Teachers should know about it too. Pardon the RW source. Read between the lines.

Re. the issue itself: interesting contrast w. attitude of American unions. No such comparable program ( correct me if I'm wrong ) exists on this side of the border. The USA unions are still in the 1960s. In fact , the NYC local, UFT , ( AFT affiliate) officially recognized the annual LGBT Pride parade for the FIRST time in 2014. BY my math that's 44 years after the FIRST annual march.

Yeah. You go, UFT. Take a walk on the wild side!

>>>>TORONTO, May 11, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) -- Canada’s largest union of elementary teachers is hosting an event next week aimed at training teachers on how to push homosexuality in kindergarten through grade 8 by creating Gay-Straight-Alliance (GSAs) clubs in schools.

“Attend this symposium to find out what others are doing and how you might begin or continue your own school’s GSA journey,” states the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) in its brochure about the May 22-23 event.

Teachers attending the event will learn about “LGBTQ community resources and how to use them” in the classroom as well as how to “raise awareness” among children from the earliest ages about LGBTQ issues.

Jack Fonseca of Campaign Life Coalition criticized the event as “despicable,” telling LifeSiteNews that what is really happening here is a case of “activist teachers using innocent children as pawns to advance their adult sexual revolution.”

“Is nothing sacred to these militants? Do they really have to sexualize elementary school classrooms? Can’t we let kids be kids anywhere in our public education system? Isn’t there the slightest concern about producing sexual confusion or insecurity in the minds of young kids?” he said.
