What was most alarming, Inspector Beaven-Desjardins said, was that many of the arrests were of people who would have been described as pillars of their communities and worked with or closely interacted with children 

Among those arrested were 40 school teachers, nine doctors and nurses, six law enforcement personnel, nine pastors and priests and three foster parents, she said.

2009: Huge inquiry fails to find pedophile ring in Cornwall

There were 34 victims in a Cornwall child-molestation scandal, but even after a four-year, $53 million public inquiry no one knows if an organized pedophile ring was operating in Eastern Ontario.

Commissioner G. Normand Glaude released his 2,396-page report Tuesday, exposing "a combination of "systemic" failures, insensitivity to complaints, and a reluctance to act" on the part of church, school, children's aid, police and justice officials.

The villains, it's alleged, are that most loathsome form of human life -- pedophiles. The pedophiles allegedly include Catholic priests and the city's leading citizens.

The pedophile ring has sparked endless charges of cover-ups and corruption in high places. The local MP is demanding a provincial inquiry. Some people even think the police may be in cahoots with the guilty.

It seems to me Commissioner G. Normand Glaude was also guilty of being reluctant to act.

The Sexteens and the Fake Goddess is a lurid tale of striptease, breast fondling, bum grabbing, orgasms, drugs and blackmail that features a deputy headmaster who sweeps a sex assault under the carpet and tells male students at a pep rally that if he was younger he would have sex with all the girls in the audience. Another teacher gives a boy advice on French kissing and as the plot unfolds we learn that the deputy headmaster and a third teacher once had a threesome with a female student.

The Sexteens and the Fake Goddess Kindle Edition

by Marie-Ange Gagnon (Author), Frederic Tremblay (Author), Jacques Tremblay (Author)

Action, thrill, mystery! As every teen, Leila Montana and Steve McPhee face a dilemma that will radically change their life. By choosing to belong to the Sexteens' Select Society, they gain access to a parallel mythological world. The Sexteens bear a Méva, which is a distinctive sign only visible by the persons who were initiated. It is also a conduit to infinite power. Confrontations and conflictual relationships with adults in position of authority explode throughout the school where every teen hates Harry. In the midst of this adventure, two of their pals mysteriously disappear. Driven by their leadership, cleverness and sex appeal, the teens start an investigation that will lead them to fight the Dark Lorddess, Arachne. In this final showdown, will the power of love succeed in overcoming the love of power?

Wynne wanted Ontarians to believe that the sex curriculum is about child safety and that is was "developed experts in child development, Internet safety, police, social workers. Parents had input.” This is a lie. "Parents had input"? Wynne should talk to the Hamilton father Steve Tourloukis who wasn't permitted to withdraw his children from topics in the sex-ed curriculum that contradicted his Greek-Orthodox faith. He fought a courageous six year court battle with the government to defend his parental rights. The sex-ed curriculum should not have been implemented in schools through legislative force. This is not the democratic way; it's the soft totalitarian way.

The majority of parents voted for change and want Doug Ford to keep his promise to repeal the sex-ed curriculum and begin real consultation with parents. Parents are sick and tired of fighting a Liberal government that refused to hear them. Wynne continued to talk about child safety but never mentioned that the curriculum was in part developed by Benjamin Levin a convicted and jailed child sex predator. 

That just about says it all.

Maybe Sex Education Shouldn't Be Taught In Schools If It Proves To Much Of Temptation For Some Of The Teachers?


  1. The primary teachers of children are their parents. It is their right and responsibility to teach sexual morality to their children.
  2. Public school sex ed classes ignore individual differences among children and break down the natural modesty of boys and girls. When children are taught academics, such as math and reading, they are given material suitable to their level of readiness for this material. Yet, when it comes to the extremely sensitive area of sexuality, all children in the same grade level are given the same material, even if some are not yet physically or psychologically ready for the material. This is insensitive and harmful. Forcing boys and girls to listen to, view and openly discuss the sexual functioning of the opposite sex’s anatomy while in their presence is embarrassing and contributes to the breakdown of the modesty that is natural and appropriate in human beings.
  3. What is taught behind the closed doors of the sex ed classroom can never be known by parents. Learner out-comes and curriculum objectives do not tell parents the teacher’s words, actions, attitudes, and responses that occur as the sex ed lesson is actually taught. This means there is absolutely no way parents can control – or even find out – what their children are being taught about sex unless they sit in the classroom alongside their children for each and every sex lesson.
  4. Public school sex ed has never been shown to reduce teen pregnancy or abortion. As a matter of fact, a study in the March 2002 issue of the Journal of Health Economics, entitled “The Economics of Family Planning on Underage Conceptions,” debunks the typical sex-ed theory that providing contraceptives to teens will reduce underage conceptions and abortions. Indeed, the study found some evidence that greater access to contraception is associated with an increase in underage conceptions.
  5. The public school has no right to judge the quality of information on sexuality that parents provide their children. Some do a good job, some do a poor job. The school has no right to say they must teach sex because they don’t like the job parents do. The school should stay out of the bedroom.
  6. Sexuality involves more than plumbing and birth control pills. The school sends the wrong message to students when their sex ed courses are mere “how to do it and how not to get caught” lessons. The best lesson in sex parents can provide their children is the love and respect they show for each other.
  7. When proponents of public school sex ed say kids need to know more, what they really mean is they want to teach our kids to use condoms, the pill, and the IUD, and if they fail, where to get an abortion. These people just don’t want any more babies. They never talk about reducing fornication or meeting the spiritual needs of our children. They focus on bodies when the real concern is souls.
  8. Children don’t need sex ed, they need chastity ed. Kids need to learn how to say no and why saying no is in their best interest – physically, emotionally, spiritually. The biology of sex takes ten minutes to teach, so what are the teachers talking about in a five or ten-week course?
  9. There is no such thing as “value-free” sex ed. When anything more than the biology is taught, someone’s values are going to be presented. Telling students to “make up your own minds” tells them there are no standards to go by. Telling students “it’s best to say ‘no,’ but if you’re going to be sexually active, be protected” sends them the message that the teacher doesn’t really expect them to control themselves. Presenting birth control without saying it’s wrong for them to use it tells the students the teacher doesn’t think it’s wrong.
  10. Public school sex ed attacks and undermines the religious faith of many students. Catholic and Christian students who have been taught by their parents that premarital sex, birth control and abortion are wrong must sit in class and hear an authority figure contradict their beliefs.

Acquittal Upheld For London, Ont. Teacher Who Secretly Filmed Students’ Breasts?

More than half of parents do not think sex education should be taught to children at school, according to a new survey.

Many think it is inappropriate to teach children about sex, whilst others think it should be a parents' choice to inform their own child, according to a poll by baby product website

The survey, which questioned more than 1,700 parents of children aged five to 11, found that 59 per cent do not agree with the fact that sex education is often taught to children in schools, even from a young age.

Almost half (48 per cent) of those questioned said children should be at least 13 years old before it is appropriate to teach them about sex, the survey found.

Of those that don't agree that sex education should be taught in schools, 41 per cent said it was inappropriate to teach youngsters about the subject, while one in four (28 per cent) said it should be the parents' choice to teach their own child.

A similar proportion (27 per cent) said there was no need for children to know about sex.

Contraception was the most popular topic that parents said should be covered in sex education lessons (chosen by 65 per cent), followed by puberty (49 per cent), homosexuality (48 per cent) and sexually transmitted infections (47 per cent). co-founder Andy Barr said: 'I am not surprised by the results of the study, with the majority of parents against the idea of sex education in a school environment.

"This is a sensitive subject and parents have their own way to approach it and want to control what their children know, even more so at a young age.'

At the moment, both primary and secondary schools have to teach pupils age-appropriate lessons about the biology of sex in science.

Schools must also have a sex education policy, although the subject is not compulsory.

The future of sex education is part of a current review of the entire national curriculum ordered by ministers.

  • polled 1,732 parents in the UK, with children aged between 5 and 11 years old. Respondents were initially asked “Do you agree with the fact that sex education is often taught to children in schools, even from a young age?” to which over half of them, 59%, said ‘no.’
  • The respondents who claimed that sex education should not be taught in schools to children were then asked to explain their decision. 41% said that sex education is ‘inappropriate for children,’ whilst just less than a third, 28%, stated that it should be ‘the parent’s choice’ to decide whether or not they wanted to educate their child on the subject.
  • A further 22% thought that ‘it might encourage children to ask more about sexuality and sex,’ whilst one in ten, 9%, feared that ‘sex would be trivialized,’ if taught to younger children in schools.
  • According to the research, just under half of the total respondents, 48%, also thought that sex education should not be part of the school curriculum until at least the age of 13 and, even then, the majority, 65%, said it should mostly be about contraception. 36% claimed that they thought it should focus more on relationships between men and women.
  • Furthermore, when asked ‘Have you already been asked about sex by your children?’ just under two third, 61%, answered ‘yes.’ 47% of these same parents admitted that their child was aged between 4 and 5 when they first asked the question, whilst 36% said they were aged between 6 and 7 when they first asked.
  • When asked ‘How did you react when you were asked about sex by your child?’ over a third, 38%, admitted to feeling ‘embarrassed.’ One in three, 32%, ‘didn’t know what to say,’ whilst 13% ‘redirected their children to the 2nd parent’ for them to deal with it and 7% just ‘ignored the question.’
