The leader of the Conservative Party of Quebec has finally spoken out about the inappropriateness of publicly funding drag shows for children.
Previously, only the People’s Party of Canada had spoken out about the moral absurdity of men in lingerie or sexually provocative attire reading books to children.
But earlier this week, Quebec’s Conservative Party leader Eric Duhaime stepped up to denounce the cultural quagmire by creating a petition that has three demands.
The first demand is to “cease all forms of public funding of activities that would expose Quebec children to drag queens.”
Duhaime’s second demand states “that the reading of children’s stories by drag queens can only be done with the explicit permission of the parents.”
And, the third calls for respectful debate between each side of the cultural clash, without resorting to insults or hate speech.
As of Friday, Duhaime’s petition has collected over 30,000 signatures.
Duhaime’s Conservative Party of Quebec failed to have any candidates elected to the National Assembly in the 2022 election. The party received 12.9% of the votes during that election compared to the majority Coalition Avenir Québec party receiving 41% and getting 90 candidates elected.
Nonetheless, Duhaime’s stance marks a significant development in Canadian politics, as most politicians from the federal or provincial Conservative parties have avoided touching the contentious issue of transgender rights compared to children’s rights and women’s rights.
For whatever reason, drag queens reading story books to children has become trendy in Canada.
As previously reported, the University of Windsor in Windsor, Ontario has announced a Mr. Rogers-themed event targeting children and families that will include a drag queen storytime. And, earlier this month, the CBC broadcasted a feature with drag performers making children uncomfortable while indoctrinating them with gender ideology.
