Votes, Surveys and Policy Decision Vote Score
Bill 18, 3rd reading, which radically sexualized the school curriculum and forced all Catholic & Public schools to accept homosexual-activist clubs
Officially called The Public Schools Amendment Act, this bill which became law, forced all public and faith-based schools, regardless of community or religious sensitivities, to accept student gay pride clubs known as GSAs. The law also served to inject the radical sexual theory of "gender identy" into school curriculum, which even children at the earliest grades will consequently be exposed to. The radical "gender identity" theory is the disputed notion that a child’s gender is not necessarily connected to their physical anatomy and that it’s perfectly normal for little boys to think they’re little girls, and vice-versa, if they merely "feel" that way in their minds. All this was done under the deceptive ruse that these changes were necessary to reduce bullying and punish bullies. The true intent of this bill was to promote a new sexual revolution, to embed anti-Christian prejudice into the school environment, and to label all people of faith who adhere to traditional biblical norms of human sexuality as if they were "hateful" or "bigoted". Unfortunately, this bill was passed on September 13, 2013 by a vote of 36 to 16, despite widespread opposition by parents and people of faith.
Opposed ok
Bill 200, 2nd reading, to establish NO FREE SPEECH ZONES on public property
This draconian private members bill by MLA Nahanni Fontaine (NDP) sought to outlaw peaceful, pro-life expression on taxpayer-owned public sidewalks within a radious of up to 150 metres around all of Manitoba's abortion facilities. Fortunately, this unconstitutional and totalitarian piece of garbage was defeated by a vote of 11 Yeas to 32 Nays on Dec. 6, 2018.
Opposed ok
