Time machine throne speech transports province to the '90s: Opposition

Area MPP leading Tory rollback of Ontario sex-ed curriculum

The Tories also promised to remove restrictions on police officers they said "treat those in uniform as subjects of suspicion and scorn".

The Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, today delivered the Speech from the Throne at Queen's Park in Toronto.

Megan Houston, a mother of three - aged two, four and 21 - said it will affect how she talks to her younger children about sex, mental health and other subjects that were addressed in the newer curriculum.

"In a time of global turmoil and change, maintaining and strengthening the bond between the people and their public representatives must always be top of mind for us all".

Premier Ford has already said that his government will run a deficit in its first, second and possibly third year before returning to black, but he recommitted to a commission of inquiry and a line-by-line audit to go over government spending and bookkeeping.

The new Ontario PC government is bringing back the legislature mid-summer to end the York University strike, the cap-and-trade program and a wind farm project proposed for Prince Edward County.

Ford ended nearly 15 years of Liberal government in the June 7 election.

Tabuns said it's unlikely the NDP will support any of the bills the government will put forward during the short session including back-to-work legislation to end the York strike and repealing cap-and-trade laws.

Lisa Thompson, the education minister for Ontario, said students will be learning from the sex-ed curriculum in place before the Liberals switched it in 2015.

Thompson also says the ministry is looking into how to replace a $100-million fund earmarked for school repairs that was cut earlier this month. "To take us backwards, to take us into a race to the bottom and pull us into the last century, that's what this throne speech says to me".

The Kathleen Wynne government's cap-and-trade program - an initiative that Premier Doug Ford have long dismissed as a tax grab - will be legally unravelled.

"He shouldn't be ending cap and trade", he said.

Ontario's new Progressive Conservative government played up key campaign promises Thursday in its first throne speech, which also included more recent policy pledges but no new announcements.

The older curriculum will remain in effect until the government completes a "fulsome consultation respecting parents" on how to modernize the material, she said. "On the big question of how they were going to pay for everything without cutting jobs or services and balancing the budget, there's nothing".
