Surrey, BC, saw upwards of 2000 people participate in a nation-wide 1 Million March 4 Children on Wednesday.
The parental rights protest, organized by a Muslim led group called Hands off our Kids, attracted a diverse group of citizens from all faiths and backgrounds to the city’s Bear Creek Park.
Those who gathered were united in concerns over things like gender confusion, sex activism and sexually explicit books, all of which have become commonplace in many B.C. schools largely due to the province's sexual orientation curriculum called SOGI 1-2-3.
“In our schools there is an agenda to indoctrinate our children, tell them that they are gender fluid, that they can change their gender,” said Amrit Birring, the leader of Freedom Party of BC.
Birring and his party have been staunch critics of the controversial curriculum and have even hosted protests against it the past. But support for finding a better way than SOGI 1-2-3 and an ending to the sexual indoctrination in schools reached unprecedented levels in his community this time around.
Protesters marched down King George highway to gather at BC Minister of Education, Rachna Singh’s office, where they came face to face with a much smaller group of counter protesters who had preemptively chosen to “take up the space” of where the parental rights protest had planned to hear speeches.
RCMP created a barrier in between the protesters who mostly consisted of LGBTQ+ activist reps and members of the Surrey Teachers Association and The BC Teachers’ Federation.
Both unions had publicly come out ahead of the protests days earlier to condemn them as hateful.
The Surrey Teachers Association went as far as to label 1 Million March 4 Children participants as members of a hate group and pressured teachers to cloak themselves in Pride colours the day of the march as a symbol of their allegiance to LGBTQ+ people.
