Oh, Canada. The country just north of the United States is once again showing the extreme peril liberalism places on society.
It should come as no surprise that the basis of the Great White North’s latest leftist has to do with transgender politics. The trans revolution is, after all, the trendiest movement in liberal circles.
Thanks to this new movement, boys can believe they’re girls. Girls can think they’re boys. Or they don’t have to pick a gender at all, now that “gender fluidity” has entered the public lexicon.
But the one thing that people are not allowed to do is question one’s decision to identify with their illegitimate gender — especially if they’re that person’s parent.
In fact, Canada is now allowing harsh punishments for parents who don’t accept their trans kids’ “identified” gender.
If you live in Ontario and have a kid that identifies as transgender, you better come to terms with it pretty quickly. If not, the government might take your children away.
The Canadian government may legally remove children from families that refuse to accept their child’s chosen “gender identity” thanks to new legislation passed by the Ontario province.
Bill 89, “Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act, 2017,” was approved on June 1 by a vote of 63 to 23.
The Minister of Children and Youth Services, Michael Coteau, who introduced the bill, said earlier this year that a parent’s failure to recognize and support a child’s gender self-identification is a form of child abuse, and a child in these circumstances should be removed from the situation and placed into protection.
“I would consider that a form of abuse, when a child identifies one way and a caregiver is saying no, you need to do this differently,” Coteau said. “If it’s abuse, and if it’s within the definition, a child can be removed from that environment and placed into protection where the abuse stops.”
The new bill replaces the Child and Family Services Act, or Bill 28, which governed child protection, foster care and adoption services.
While “gender identity” and “gender expression” are included in the new legislation as important factors to be considered in determining “the best interests of the child,” the religious faith in which the parents are raising the child—present in former laws—has been removed from consideration for assessing the child’s best interests.
The left sometimes like to refer to themselves as the “party of science.” With their latest embrace of anti-science transgender politics, they’ve revealed themselves to be anything but. They’re so tied up in ideology that they’re willing to break apart families — all to prove how “tolerant” their society can be.
