The legislative proposal known as Bill 2 in the Legislative Assembly of Alberta would explicitly require that all instructional materials “reflect the diverse nature and heritage of society in Alberta, promote understanding and respect for others and honour and respect the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the Alberta Human Rights Act.” The bill further requires not only public schools, but also private schools and homeschools to comply with these requirements (§ 1 “interpretation of school”).


Donna McColl, assistant director of communications for Minister of Education Thomas Lukaszuk, explained the bill’s intent Wednesday evening in an interview with LifeSiteNews. “Whatever the nature of schooling—homeschool, private school, Catholic school—we do not tolerate disrespect for differences,” McColl said.

“You can affirm the family’s ideology in your family life; you just can’t do it as part of your educational study and instruction,” she added.

Paul Faris of the Home School Legal Defence Association (HSLDA) of Canada explains, “Basically what it would mean is all learning that goes on in the home, all material that goes on in the home, would essentially be subject to the Alberta Human Rights Act. The Ministry of Education is clearly signaling that they are in fact planning to violate the private conversations families have in their own homes.”

Ah, Human Rights Act used to destroyed the rights for everyone.  It maybe in Alberta, Canada but these same people exist here too.  And with the push for looking at what other countries do I have no doubt there are education "experts" here desiring the same human rights here.
"And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor."

So, in Alberta, there is no opt-out from the Leftist agenda. Got it.

Leftism requires coercion. It is otherwise unnatural for free men to comply.
"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."

- Thomas Jefferson
