Rating Comments: No response to 2022 Ontario election survey. However, when speaking with a prospective voter during the 2018 provincial election cycle, Thanigasalam said he disagree with the child-abusive Liberal sex curriculum and wants to repeal it. When asked about abortion he was evasive, saying he agrees with the pro-life view, but as a politician he believes he has to "hear all the voices".

Explicit 2010/2015 sex education curriculum
The Ontario Liberal government of Kathleen Wynne & Dalton McGuinty introduced a sex ed curriculum for the 2010 school year that would have forced public & Catholic elementary schools to encourage masturbation, celebrate homosexuality and gender identity confusion, and teach about anal and oral intercourse. The curriculum sought to give gay-positive teaching on homosexual relationships by Grade 3. In Grade 5 children would be taught that homosexuality is inborn and cannot be changed, a claim that has no scientific backing whatsoever. In Grade 6 it would give instructions on the pleasures of masturbation and discussed vaginal lubrication. In grade 7 children would be taught about "oral" and "anal sex". Thanks to public outcry from parents and religious leaders, this dangerous curriculum was "postponed" by the government. However, once Kathleen Wynne received a strong Liberal majority and the threat of an election was past, she announced that the controversial curriculum would be implemented in September 2015. Since the original preview of the curriculum in 2010, it has come to light that it was written under the direction of a man, Benjamin Levin, who has confessed to child pornography related charges. That makes sense given the explicit, age-inappropriate nature of the curriculum. It is feared by many parents and education observers that the curriculum may have been designed to 'groom' children so as to make them available for sex. Other parties with whom the Liberal government consulted to formulate this program included radical gay activists groups like Gay Ontario (now Queer Ontario) and Egale Canada. [Jan. 2010-present]

Bill 150, to eliminate voter fraud in internal party elections, second reading
This bill, officially called the ‘Ensuring Transparency and Integrity in Political Party Elections Act’, aimed to eliminate the voter fraud, ballot-box stuffing, falsified ballots and other rigging of votes that has been commonplace in the PC Party of Ontario with respect to candidate nomination elections, Party President and Executive Committee votes, wherein the party establishment cheats in order to rig the vote for its preferred candidate, or to block candidates they do not like. Those who oppose this bill can only object because they wish to continue conducting voter fraud. Passed 2nd reading Dec 12, 2019 by a vote 95-0.
Absent or abstained --
Bill 12, Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccinations in the Education and Healthcare Sectors, second reading
This bill was crafted to compel workers in the education and healthcare fields to submit to being injected with the abortion-tainted Covid-19 vaccines even against their will, or suffer discriminatory measures from their employers, which could have led to unemployment and poverty. This coercive bill to force people to choose between their conscience and their livelihood amounts to a legislative attack on democacy in Ontario. Defeated at 2nd reading on October 21, 2021 by a vote of 34-16.
absent or abstained --
Bill 3, An Act to prohibit harassment based on enforcement or adoption of public health measures relating to COVID-19, second reading
This tyrannical bill, introduced by Ontario NDP leader Andrea Horwath, aimed to muzzle and punish the free speech of Ontarians who refuse to kowtow to the increasingly harsh and unscientific Covid public health decrees. The bill would create as-yet undefined and arbitrarily-designated "safe zones" in which any suggestion of alternative views or evidence that contradicts the government-enforced Covid mandate narrative could result in crippling fines of up to $25,000. With this bill, the NDP, along with the sole Ontario Green Party MPP, has revealed its savage attack on free speech and dissenting views in the public square and is showing ever-clearer signs of its socialist ideological pedigree of top-down totalitarian government. This Orwellian bill was defeated at 2nd Reading on Nov. 4, 2021 by a vote 46 to 20.
No ok
Bill 67, to impose marxist, Critical Race Theory on schools, 2nd reading
This radical, socially-divisive bill seeks to impose on Ontario's schools what is known as 'Critical Race Theory', a modern-day version of the class warfare strategy developed by Carl Marx, the father of communism - an ideology responsible for the mass murder of up to 180 million people throughout history. In classic Marxism, socialists or communists seized control of society by exploiting existing tensions between rich & poor to divide and create conflict in society, painting one side as oppressed (poor) and the other as oppressor (rich), and then calling for violent revolution to overthrow the oppressor, with the Marxists supposedly bringing liberation, but ultimately becoming new dictators once in power. Likewise, in modern day 'Critical Race Theory', existing or even invented racial tensions are exploited to paint one race as oppressor (descendants of white Europeans) and others as oppressed (non-whites), and to call for various forms of discrimination, degradation and vilification against the oppressor class, in the name of 'social justice' or 'anti-racism', with the agitators of the conflict accumulating vast political power in the process. This dystopian bill passed 2nd reading by a vote of 72 yeas to 1 nay on March 3, 2022.
