Canada’s Ontario province has passed legislation that allows the government to seize children from families that refuse to accept their child’s chosen “gender identity” or “gender expression.”

The so-called Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act of 2017, or Bill 89, was approved by a vote of 63 to 23, according to The Christian Times.

It requires child protection, foster, adoption service providers, and judges to take into account and respect a child’s “race, ancestry, place of origin, color, ethnic origin, citizenship, family diversity, disability, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.”

“I would consider that a form of abuse, when a child identifies one way and a caregiver is saying no, you need to do this differently,” Minister of Child and Family Services Michael Coteau, who introduced the bill, was quoted as saying. “If it’s abuse, and if it’s within the definition, a child can be removed from that environment and placed into protection where the abuse stops.”

The bill replaces the Child and Family Services Act, or Bill 28, which governs child protection, foster care and adoption services.

Bill 28 stated that the parent of a child in care retains the right “to direct the child’s education and religious upbringing.” However, the new law amends it thus: “to direct the child or young person’s education and upbringing, in accordance with the child’s or young person’s creed, community identity and cultural identity.”

Irwin Elman, Ontario’s provincial advocate for children and youth, said in a statement, “I believe that this new Act, in its principles, represents a paradigm shift for the province with its commitment to the participation of children and youth in every decision that affects them, the creation of a child-centered system of service, and commitment to anti-racism and children’s rights.”

Jack Fonseca, senior political strategist for Campaign Life Coalition, disagrees, and was quoted as saying, “With the passage of Bill 89, we’ve entered an era of totalitarian power by the state, such as never witnessed before in Canada’s history. Make no mistake, Bill 89 is a grave threat to Christians and all people of faith who have children, or who hope to grow their family through adoption.”

In April, a Christian couple filed a lawsuit against Hamilton Children’s Aid Society for removing two foster children from their home because they refused to lie to the girls by saying that the Easter bunny is real.

“We have a no-lying policy,” Derek Baars, one of the foster parents, said at the time, pointing out that a child support worker insisted that he and his wife, Frances Baars, tell the two girls in their care, aged 3 and 4, the Easter bunny is real. “We explained to the agency that we are not prepared to tell the children a lie. If the children asked, we would not lie to them, but we wouldn’t bring it up ourselves.”

The eligibility of the Baars, members of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America, was canceled and the children were taken away. The CAS worker, who insisted that the Baars teach the kids that the Easter bunny is genuine, told them that the Easter bunny was an important part of Canadian culture.

    I would suggest that parents be proactive and remove their family from such draconian, Godless governance. Walk away and never look back. Shake the dust from the land you once knew because it is not yours anymore.

    I sure hope this is fake news, If this is true, we are a country that is closely falling into the hand of dictatorship. Is the whole world going mad? Look at what’s happening in the US. Time to put leaders in who had to struggle a little to get there and use wisdom instead of nonsense Leaders who have the guts to stand up for what is right and not what they believe makes them popular.

    I’m almost certain this was canceled by the Doug Ford government. It was one of their first acts once in power.

    Note the use of the word ‘caretaker’ in the quote by the evil man who proposed the bill, rather than parent, or Mother or Father.

    Canada is slowly becoming Godless. The people either need to stand their ground or leave. Leave with your heart and honor and God will find a path for you to prosper. This is a tyrannic law and an abomination of humanity. It’s a disgrace!

    The government has no business interfering with the family unit. Unless there is physical abuse.This is once again our PM being a dictator. There is nothing wrong with letting youngsters believe in fairy tales. They find out soon enough that there is no such thing as the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus or the Tooth Fairy. Why should the government intervene with a practice that has been around for hundreds of years and does no harm to the children. At least they get gifts for a little while. Now they are trying to make them into adults before it is necessary. Time to get rid of this senile Liberal government.

      I agree, but the choice should always be up to the parents, not the government. The children, in this article, were taken away because their foster Christian parents did NOT want to lie to the young girls and tell them the Easter Bunny is real. So it was the opposite of your thoughts. Some homes prefer not to allow fairy tales, while others do. However, this further demonstrates why such matters should ALWAYS be up to the parents/guardians.

      God may not make mistakes, but sometimes nature does. That is why many people have genetic deformities and diseases. Nevertheless, until a child turns 18 and/or is no longer a dependent in the home, the parents should be able to set the rules and expectations regarding their own children. After that time period, we release them to make their own choices and, sometimes, it may included difficult things like gender dysphoria. Until emancipation, parents should teach and lead their children as they see fit – with discipline, not abuse – and hope they will ultimately be an example of all the dedication and love that was put upon them since birth.

    So, fantasy, fairy tales, and lying are all part of the Canadian culture?

    As far as gender there is two. There is Man, and there is Woman. That God created. Anything else and it is the work or persuasion of man
    You are as you are born, and your body tells us what you are.
