Granted the so-called snitch line is no longer active, but this doesn't discount the fact that champions of modern sex ed were totally correct to make a big stink about the government's repeal of the modern curriculum. In fact, in light of recent news, we could have made an even bigger stink.

This is because, according to a CBC story this week by Nicole Brockbank based on a freedom of information request, the provincial government didn't just set up a snitch line; it flagged "some parent complaints" made through the snitch line about teachers covering topics such as same sex marriage, masturbation and sexting, "as allegations of professional misconduct."

What's more, these complaints were recorded, according to the CBC, in the same category "as complaints about teachers using racial slurs and making sexual advances toward students."
