The National Post says it's sorry for running a transphobic ad from the Institute for Canadian Values.

The Christian group's message dealt with Ontario school-curriculum content concerning transsexual, transgender, intersex, and two-spirit issues. According to the institute, teaching in this area "corrupts children".

"The National Post has procedures in place for vetting the content of advertising, especially advocacy advertising," the editorial intoned. "The procedures are intended to ensure that such ads meet a standard of tone and respect that is consistent with furthering constructive dialogue about important public policy issues."
