As we wait breathless to learn the names of the 300 people Education Minister David Eggen has appointed to teach us backward Albertans a revolutionary new way of thinking, it may be useful to examine the way the minister himself does his thinking. This becomes highly evident in the way he handled several recent issues, one in particular.
In an open letter he sent to the public school children of Alberta last August, he showed them a way they could defy their parents or teachers on the question of their starting or joining the new sex clubs that have been authorized by his department. (I know the government prefers to call them “LGBTQ” clubs. but if lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer aren’t about sex, what are they about? So yes, Alberta Education is (to use its own word) “promoting” sex clubs in our schools.)
But the minister has taken it much farther than this. He wants to be known to every student in the province that he is the personal champion of these clubs. Here’s how he explains it to the students on his Face Book:
As Minister of Education, I have been working with your school boards to make sure that our schools are welcoming and caring. All boards have created new policies to support LGBTQ students and they will now come to life in your schools. In the coming weeks, Alberta Education will be promoting new resources to make sure that schools are safe and welcoming. You can also reach out directly to my staff, who can help you ensure your rights are being respected, at email@example.com. As we stand together, let’s embrace the differences in one another. We will all be better for it in the long run. And remember: I’m with you one hundred per cent.
