According to an Angus Reid poll, Canadians overwhelmingly agree with Alberta Premier Danielle Smith’s recent policy that parents should always be informed concerning their child’s pronouns and gender identity. 

78% of Canadians support Danielle Smith’s policy to keep parents informed

A few months back, an Angus Reid Canada wide poll asked parents how involved they want to be with their children regarding their gender and pronouns. 

43% of respondents said parents should have to give consent to such changes, and 35% said parents should at least be informed of them. 

This means nearly four out of five Canadians said that parents should at least be informed when their child wants to change their pronouns or gender identity. 

Conversely, only 14% of Canadians said they felt parents should have no involvement or knowledge of their child’s pronouns.

Alberta’s new policies 

The debate on parental involvement in their children’s pronouns been reignited after Smith released a video on X where she introduced new policies surrounding gender ideology, trans people, or those who think they are trans.

The Alberta Premier announced two pronoun policies: for students 15 and under, parents must consent to pronoun changes; for 16-17-year-olds, parents must be informed of the changes.

Another related policy announcement was a ban hormone therapy / puberty blockers for youth 15 and under (other than those who have already started).

Smith further said that parental notification and an opt-in requirement by parents is required if teachers intend to give formal instruction on gender identity, sexual orientation or human sexuality.

Moreover, the Premier said that ministry approval is needed for all third-party resource materials that woke teachers and school boards have infiltrated into K-12 schools.

 Finally, Smith also said the UCP will work with sporting organizations to ensure women and girls are able to participate in a women’s only division.

“There are obvious biological realities that give transgender female athletes a massive competitive advantage over women and girls,” she said, adding, “It is not beneficial for those women, including those who are transgender, for this divisive and sometimes dangerous situation to continue.”
