Quebec schools to begin educating five-year-olds on same-sex relationships

  • TwitterFacebookRedditEmail

Canada has introduced sex education for children as young as five.

After a two-year trial project involving 200 schools proved successful, it has been announced that the curriculum will become mandatory for more than 3,000 schools.

Children will begin by learning about the basics of sex at the age of five.


The rollout is planned for September 2018.

Kids will initially begin by learning about different types of families, including ones which include same-sex couples.

But the new curriculum has prompted outrage from parents who believe that the syllabus is not age-appropriate.

Because apparently, five-year-olds shouldn’t be aware of loving parents different to theirs.

One of those who has expressed opposition is Donatella Garofalo, mother to a 10-year-old, who told The Western Star: “This has nothing to do with religion.

“This has to do with age-appropriate material.”

And some protesters have named the new curriculum a “sex activist agenda” that “abuses” children and their innocence.
