Fifty-seven percent of Canadians agree with New Brunswick Premier Blaine Higgs’ stance on parental rights, according to a new poll by SecondStreet.org and market research firm Leger.
This means Trudeau thinks the majority of Canadians are “far right.”
New Brunswick recently introduced a policy that requires teachers to have parental consent if they are to use alternative pronouns or names for students under the age of 16. Thus, if a child is taking on a transgender or non-binary identity at school, their parents will be made aware.
The new policy prompted Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to call the Higgs government “far-right.”
“When it comes to informing parents about gender issues involving their children, the [New Brunswick] government appears to be on the same page with the majority of New Brunswickers,” said the president of SecondStreet.org, Colin Craig.
The poll showed that a majority of respondents in all age groups believe parents have a right to know if their children are requesting alternative pronouns at school.
In addition, 51% of respondents said they believe education is going in the wrong direction, and 47% said schools should have to show parents the curriculum related to gender ideology and race-related topics.
On Saturday, the New Brunswick Premier trashed Trudeau for labeling parents “far right” if they think they deserve to know what pronouns a teacher is calling their 5-year-old child.
“[New Brunswick Liberal leader] Susan Holt and Justin Trudeau don’t believe parents need be involved in such critical discussions as gender identity, even in children as young as 4,” Higgs said.
“In New Brunswick, we’ll have a safe learning environment & better mental health supports, while still respecting the parent’s role.”
As previously reported by The Counter Signal, parents from all walks of life are getting fed up with the radical gender ideology being pushed in schools and have been organizing large protests to fight back.
