Unfortunately, it does not appear that the Minister of Education, Thomas Lukaszuk understood the depth or breadth of the implications of s.16. Immediately after the rally Mr. Lukaszuk tweeted: “Attended a rally put on by some home schoolers who protest against human rights in education.”
It is extremely disappointing that Mr. Lukaszuk continues to misunderstand, misinterpret or misrepresent what we are saying. It is Alberta Human Rights laws imposed in every component of our education and in our homes that we oppose. Alberta Human Rights Legislation was never intended to be used that way.
In actuality, the starting gate gun has just been shot. As of today, we are running the race for our freedom. Our voice has finally been heard and there is concerted opposition. If our efforts die off now, the government will be convinced that they finally made us understand that we have nothing to worry about.
They are wrong.
