What's abstinence got to do with it?

Recently, an article about a sex education program being offered in some Edmonton public schools called Wait! Let’s Talk Sex came across my twitter. The program is a Christian-inspired, abstinence-based program modelled on curricula currently in effect in many parts of the U.S.

My reaction: Wait, let’s talk public education!

Abstinence education in Canada

How is it that abstinence-based sex-ed is being taught to kids in public schools in Canada?

The ongoing labour crisis in Ontario's public schools may just be a prelude to a much broader battle about to unfold between the government and all public sector workers in the province.

Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty's mysterious legacy

An aura of mystery hovers around Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty. There's two words I doubt you ever expected to hear together (the ones starting with M). Is it possible he needs an intervention? Not a high-rent one like the invasions of Iraq or Afghanistan: a trashy intervention like you see on reality TV. He did say he needs a hug. Is that a cry for help or what?
