  • New Brunswick Premier Blaine Higgs is firm on his decision to review policy 713 on gender diversity, which has sparked a heated debate in the provincial legislature. The Premier defended his comments made yesterday, emphasizing the importance of informing parents about changes in their children's preferred name and pronoun. Higgs believes that parents should be involved in the education system and that schools should keep them informed. Education Minister supports the review and highlights the need to consult with children, advocates, and experts. Cabinet ministers also back the review, stressing the importance of compassion and respect for students with different sexual orientations. Despite controversies surrounding policy 713, Higgs clarifies that his personal views do not conflict with the LGBTQ+ community. The ongoing debate raises crucial questions about the role of parents in public education and the significance of promoting diversity and inclusivity among young minds.
  • Subtitles section
  • Good evening.
  • Debate in the New Brunswick Legislature was dominated by comments made yesterday by Premier Blayne Higgs in defending a review of policy 713 on gender diversity.
  • CTV's Alison Sampson starts us off tonight.
  • I'd like to give him the opportunity to maybe clarify and correct some of the things said in the scrum.
  • Speaking in the New Brunswick Legislature, the Premier stood by yesterday's comments in question period today.
  • Does she think there should be drag time, story time for young kindergarten, grade one, grade two?
  • Does she think that's appropriate, Mr. Speaker?
  • We're dealing with young minds.
  • Exposing kids to the diversity of people and professions in our community is a way to reduce hate and to breed love.
  • Higgs is also standing by his government's decision to review policy 713.
  • He pointed to students under 16 changing their preferred first name and pronoun without informing their parents, saying parents should know what is happening with their children and schools should keep them informed.
  • The province's education minister supports the review.
  • We're going to talk to our children, we're going to talk to our advocates, we're going to talk to our experts, and we're going to look at policy 713 and see what things we need to look at.
  • What is the role of parents in our public education system?
  • I think that's a real important question.
  • PC cabinet ministers are backing the review of policy 713.
  • I think it's important to have the review.
  • I think it's important to understand that we have to be compassionate and respectful to people that have, especially students and kids, that have, you know, different sexual orientation and whatnot.
  • I don't have a personal issue with drag queens, most certainly I don't, or anyone in the LGBTQ plus community.
  • I strongly support the safety of children, the safety of children in schools, and the safety of LGBTQSI students within the schools.
  • And I will use my voice to continue to advocate for them.
  • And Todd CTV did ask if Premier Higgs is going to come to speak with reporters after question period today to further talk about policy 713, but the Premier did not make an appearance.
  • Todd?
  • Alright, CTV's Alison Sampson for us outside the legislature.
  • Thank you, Alison.
