Ontario Premier McGuinty to Abandon Proposed Sex-Ed Reform

This one's a call to action, you Ontario Shakers: the time is now to get on the blower to the MPP* and make your voice heard. This is a reform aimed at bringing shame-free education about bodily autonomy, to be taught at the earliest point possible, among other worthy changes.

Ontarians can find their MPP's address here. It's probably worth taking the time to make sure your subject header shows your clear support for the initiative, as we can expect our opponents to be pushing the same buttons, and if they get swamped, it's not inconceivable they may just do a subject-header-based count.

If you're outside the country and wish to express your opinion, I recommend polite e-mails or letters to the Canadian consulate and to Premier McGuinty's office directly, perhaps expressing your hope that Canada can continue in the role we want for ourselves, striding forward as a nation of progressives.

Teaspoons up, Shakers! ô,ôP
