The Counter Signal’s Alexa Posa attended a protest opposing Danielle Smith’s recent Parental Rights announcement regarding transgender policies for minors where attendees said they believe children as young as 3-years-old can be trans.
Most protesters didn’t like that Posa was asking these questions and decided to block her with flags and signs.
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.
