Victory for children and parents: Alberta repeals Bill 24
Bill 24 surrounded GSAs (Gay Straight Alliance) with secrecy. Secrecy about which adults speak at GSA meetings and have access to children, unbeknownst to their parents. Secrecy about what sexual and political materials kids are exposed to at GSA-related activities and events. The Alberta government's official GSA website, directed at K-12 children, had links to vile pornography, causing reasonable parents to have valid concerns about the contents of what their children would be exposed to at GSA meetings and GSA activities at schools.
children return to school in September 2019, Bill 24 and its secrecy provisions
are no longer in force. School boards are free to adopt policies whereby
teachers and principals can once again exercise discretion in informing parents
about what is going on with their own children at school.
