The Muslim Association of Canada (MAC) is demanding an apology from the school boards, unions, and politicians – including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau – that characterized the One Million March for Children as bigoted.
Following last week’s nationwide Muslim-organized march in support of parental rights, Trudeau slammed the tens of thousands of protesters for being transphobic, homophobic, and “biphobic.”
On Tuesday, the MAC called out Trudeau for his comments, suggesting he was sowing hatred towards Muslim Canadians.
“The Muslim Association of Canada strongly condemns remarks on recent protests made by certain politicians, including our Prime Minister, as well as statements from school boards, unions, and reports from some media outlets,” the letter reads.
“By characterizing the peaceful protests of thousands of concerned parents as hateful, Canadian leaders and school boards are setting a dangerous precedent of using their position of influence to unjustly demonize families, and alienate countless students.”
The marches across Canada were in protest of the sexualization of children in schools and the fact that gender ideology is being taught to children, which most Canadians don’t even agree with.
The MAC’s statement added, “Parents should have the absolute right to advocate for the wellbeing of their children.”
“We call on all politicians and school boards, beginning with Prime Minister Trudeau, to retract their deeply inflammatory and divisive comments and issue an apology to the thousands of Canadian parents hurt by these comments.”
Last week, after Trudeau called all the protesters bigots, Conservative leader Pierre Poilievre told Trudeau to “butt out” of the issue — and offered support to parents concerned about their children’s education.
Gender Ideology rejected
56% of Canadians recently polled said they believe there are just two genders, male and female, and this percentage is likely higher because a disproportionate amount of those surveyed didn’t identify as either male or female.
Most Canadians also side with parental rights in the school pronoun policy debate.
78% believe parents have a right to know when their children begin using a gender-swapped name or alternative pronouns at school.
