(ZENIT News –The Daily Compass / Ottawa, 26.09.2023).- They weren’t a million, but certainly hundreds of thousands of parents who gathered on Wednesday, September 20, in many cities of Canada, to protest against the indoctrination of the abortionist and LGBTQ ideology that Trudeau’s liberal government wants in all the country’s schools. The parents’ movement includes all social classes and creeds, in which Muslims play a prominent role, exacting respect of educational freedom and of the human rights granted to parents by all Canadian and International Conventions and Rights Charters, which the (il)liberal, and now Socialist Trudeau Government is flagrantly violating.
Kamel El-Cheikh, — Ottawa businessman, parent, activist and leader of the Muslim Community, and promotor of the initiative in Ottawa, where 10,000 people gathered, along with numerous evangelical religious leaders, parents and Christian educators –, asserted that the “March of a Million People” would not be a one-off event, but the beginning of a national coordinated movement, also through their Website “Hands Off Our Kids,” which is already collecting numerous news items and reports on last Wednesday’s initiatives.
The ”March of a Million People,” or #1MillionMarch4Children has also elicited an organized counter-protest, in part, by the labour unions of Ontario’s public sector, and in part by LGBTQ and Transgender lobbies and movements, widely supported by the Federal Government. Ottawa’s, as was foreseen, was only one of the dozens upon dozens of protests held throughout Canada on September 20, to demonstrate parents’ opposition and anger because, in the majority of the country’s provinces, not only is the LGBTQ and reproductive rights doctrine imposed, but also children under 16 can decide to change their sexual gender and pronoun, without permission and not even the school’s information to their parents. A fully Communist doctrinal imposition implemented with Soviet authoritarian methods. Those taking part in the protests held in the country chanted the slogan “Leave our children in peace,” challenging the school programs the Trudeau Government wants.

The detractors of this new popular Canadian movement, profoundly inter-confessional and firm defender of freedom and of parents’ rights describe the protestors as simplistic and contemptuous, and accuse them of being “extremists of the Right” who want to harm LGBTQ+ young people. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau condemned the marches and wrote on his Twitter account: “Transphobia, homophobia and biphobia have no place in this country. We energetically condemn this hatred and its manifestations and we remain united in support of 2SIGBTQi+ Canadians of the whole country: you are good and you are appreciated.”
In complete agreement with Trudeau, Celeste Trianon, one of the leaders of Canada’s LGBTQ pressure group, reminded the national CTV News chain that it’s necessary to convince the dissenting people and “teach them the adequate vocabulary, the appropriate words, in a suitable moment for their age, to explain to them that inclusion is something good. We must ensure that their trans and queer companions in school feel welcome,” said Trianon. In fact, whereas in Ottawa the police detained five protestors, manifesting in defense of children’s and parents’ rights, in Vancouver gangs of LGBTI thugs, organized and coordinated with various labour union federations, provoked peaceful parents and sought confrontation repeatedly to thwart the authorized protest.
The challenge to the indoctrination and manipulation of children and the privation of the patria potestas, as well as the restriction of citizen liberties, was also taken up in the summer months by several Conservative Governors and parliamentary majorities in several Canadian Federal Provinces, beginning by Ontario, New Brunswick and Saskatchewan, which also banned the presence of Planned Parenthood in schools and introduced swiftly regulations in favour of information and obligatory parental consent prior to sexual, abortive and LGBT education of children in the schools.
The first signs of protest erupted on July 15, when Muslim parents of schoolchildren of the city of Mississauga (Ontario) decided to protest publicly against the gender ideology imposed by the Canadian Government on their children and the city’s schoolchildren. Then, on July 17, in Calgary (Alberta) dozens of Christian and Muslim parents went out on the street to “protect together” their children from the indoctrination and the abolition of the patria potestas, which was being imposed in the schools. Over the ten years of Justin Trudeau’s Government, Canada has been transformed from a liberal and tolerant country to a tyrannic and discriminatory one with ordinary citizens and parents that are not resigned to see their children engulfed by the insane abortionist and LGBTI doctrines.
“We are not here to fight the LGBTQ community, we are here to fight the government who isn’t listening to us.”

In regard to all this, the Conservative leader Pierre Polievre continues to gain ground in the polls, according to a new Ipsos survey, carried out exclusively for the Global News Canadian newspaper, 40% of Canadians believe he is the best option as Prime Minister. Trudeau registered 31%. Polievre could win the next 2025 general elections and re-establish a democratic and liberal State in the country. Two years is a long timer and his positions on abortion continue being ambiguous but [voters] are comforted by the clarity of his official position on parents’ rights in education: “Parents must have the last word . . . schools must leave to them the final decision on sexual, gender and LGBTI indoctrination.”
