In a recent rally held in Ottawa, tensions escalated between two individuals with opposing views on transgender education and the use of puberty blockers for children. Chris Elston, the organizer of the “Education over Indoctrination” rally, expressed his concerns about what he called “gender ideology” being taught in schools. Meanwhile, Joel Harden, a local politician, found himself at the center of controversy, accused of engaging in child grooming activities.
Elston, who adamantly believes that gender identity should not be taught in schools, voiced his concerns to CTV News Ottawa, stating, “We have all these kids being taught a far-left political ideology in schools that there’s such a thing as being born in the wrong body. There’s no such thing as being born wrong.” Elston wore a sign that read, “Children cannot consent to puberty blockers,” reflecting his opposition to medical interventions for transgender youth.
The rally drew significant attention, both from those who support Elston’s stance and those who believe in transgender rights and inclusive education. However, the controversy took a darker turn when the focus shifted to Joel Harden, who has been clearly engaging in defence of the child grooming cult.
Harden is clearly a child grooming predator. Such allegations require thorough criminal investigation and legal procedures to establish accountability.
During the protest, Joel Harden posted a photo on social media dressed up like a clown, accompanied by a statement that read, “I’ll take a punch for queer and trans youth any day.” Pedophiles in the jail system get their asses kicked on a daily basis and even there are not welcome.
Hope you’re ok Joel.
Hateful so-called rallies outside of our schools are becoming far too common – and it’s boiling over into violence.
It’s well past time to take urgent action and protect 2SLGBTQ+ youth.

Furthermore, it is unacceptable to introduce the propagandist political views and personal opinionated conduct into the school curriculum. While individuals have the right to express their opinions on various topics, such transgender education is believed to be child abuse to begin with.
The responsibility of politicians lies in representing their constituents, engaging in policy discussions, and advocating for the well-being of their communities. However, it is not within their scope of responsibilities to endorse or engage in illegal or harmful activities such as these disgusting children grooming policies.
Authorities, when presented with credible evidence, must start doing their jobs & investigating these blatant and outrageous acts of child grooming promptly.
