New Brunswick premier bans sex-ed group from schools over “inappropriate” presentation


New Brunswick Premier Blaine Higgs says he is banning a Quebec-based sexual education organization from sharing information in provincial schools after what he called an “inappropriate” presentation in high schools.

In a lengthy post on the social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter, Higgs says he’s heard from concerned parents who shared photos and screenshots of presentation material from Montreal-based sexual education group Thirsty for the Talk, an online resource created by HPV Global Action. A photo Higgs shared on social media as part of the thread shows a presentation slide with questions like: “Do girls masturbate?” and “Is anal good or bad?” among others.

He says the Department of Education told him the presentation was supposed to be about Human Papillomavirus and the group shared materials beyond that scope.

  1. Schools have no business being that explicit when teaching kids. That's the job for the parents. A parent is always better equipped to discuss those matters in a way they feel appropriate.
