Bill 24 has passed in the Leg.
Its now illegal for schools to inform parents—if their kids join gay-straight alliances.
Just before the vote—Education Minister David Eggen told MLA’s—they could be on the “right side of history—or they could oppose the bill.”
In the end—it passed by a vote of 42-23.
The 23 against–were all the members of the UCP.
Comedian Rick Mercer called out UC leader Jason Kenney and his stance on the matter during his latest rant:
“THIS—is all about “outing” young people. And it is serious–because there’s a very good chance Jason Kenney will be the next premier of Alberta. Jason—stop it! Stick to playground rules—-pick on someone your own size.” (photo credit–CBC/CP)
