Since the Ontario PC leadership race kicked off a month ago, Ford has repeatedly stated during leadership debates and interviews he would merely "review" the sexual health component in the province's Health and Physical Education curriculum, but as the race heads down the homestretch, Ford's campaign now appears to have traded its dog whistle for a foghorn.

Former televangelist Charles McVety, a close ally of Ford's leadership campaign, is currently appealing to his social conservative followers to vote for Ford because "Doug Ford will repeal radical sex education."

McVety, who was fired from Christian TV station CTS in 2010 over "discriminatory comments" suggesting "homosexuals prey on children," runs the Institute for Canadian Values, a social conservative think tank that spreads disinformation targeting LGBTQ Canadians and falsely claims Ontario's sex-ed curriculum requires teachers to provide students with instructions on "the pleasures of masturbation."
