During an exchange on Gay-Straight Alliances, Kenney was pressed by NDP leader Rachel Notley to defend his proposed policy that would out students who join GSAs — Kenney's controversial position on GSAs has sparked rallies across Calgary and Edmonton last weekend.

Kenney offered an anecdote about students being taken on a field trip to a GSA "conference" without their parents knowledge, claiming "parents should know if a kid's being taken out of the school for a field trip."

Not only was Kenney's anecdote wildly misleading (rules on joining GSAs have nothing to do with field trips or otherwise leaving school grounds), but his anecdote was actually sourced from his friend John Carpay.
