Only ONE Ontario MPP stood against Critical Race Theory

Only one MPP in the Ontario Legislature, Belinda Karahalios, voted against Bill 67, the Racial Equity in the Education System Act which has recently passed its second reading in the legislature. Not one of Doug Ford's "Conservative" MPPs voted against the bill. 

Karahalios was kicked out of the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party in July of 2020 when she voted against Bill 195, which allowed the Doug Ford government to extend emergency powers for up to two years without consulting the legislature. Karahalios is now the leader of the New Blue Party of Ontario.

Bill 67 was introduced by Ontario NDP MPP Laura Mae Lindo as a means to combat racism in the education system, at least, that's what we're told is the intended goal. For more on Critical Race Theory, please read here. This bill would amend the Education Act and five other existing Ontario statutes by inserting provisions that essentially call for the implementation of thought control in school systems and post-secondary institutions.

There are many concerning parts in this bill, one of which is its extremely loose definition of “racism” which is: “the use of socially constructed ideas of race to justify or support, whether consciously or subconsciously [emphasis added], the notion that one race is superior to another.” Another is that the bill aims to ensure new teaching staff undergo anti-racism and equity training, be required to submit “anti-racism accountability reports,” and adds anti-racism and racial equity training to the responsibilities of education boards throughout Ontario.

Jordan Peterson has also sounded the alarm bells around Bill 67 saying, “A warning to citizens of Ontario and Canada, Bill 67, which purports to be nothing but an anti-racist bill is in fact, the most pernicious and dangerous piece of legislation that any Canadian government has attempted to put forward...It will make mandatory the subversion of the entire education system in Ontario. K–12, as well as colleges and universities to the radically leftist doctrines known as critical (race) theory — a thoroughly anti-Western ideology, both postmodern and Marxist in its derivation, based on the idea that all our extant institutions are racist, sexist, and discriminatory in their essence."

One interesting note is that Ontario's Human Rights Code already forbids discrimination on the basis of race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, creed, and so on, so if an individual has an issue, they can file a complaint. What Bill 67 does is it demands students, teachers, university faculty, staff and administrators to be indoctrinated with CRT.

There are several regulations what would come into play after Bill 67 becomes law, and here's the catch, they'd come into play without the legislature's approval - yikes. Seeing as these regulations are not yet even in the stage of being written, Ontario MPP's wouldn't even know what they are necessarily voting for if they chose to cast a YEA vote!

Critical Race Theory has NO place in our children's classrooms. Help keep Bill 67 far, far away from our children's impressionable minds by contacting your local MPP!
