I'm not sure if you just meant conservative, batshit old men in general by mentioning Doug Ford (Just because he's Ontario), I'm in Alberta and so we have Jason Kenny (just as bad though, he's just new and hasn't gotten a whole lot of opportunity.) WEXIT is a thing here though, and that's just insanely stupid, something Quebec has tried twice now and that just failed. The problem with this though, is unlike Trump, he actually has an understanding of how to pass those laws an create major problems and in fact already has.. Because we don't have enough schools, teachers next year will work more and be paid less, doctors visits - 15 minutes tops is the new guideline. Also, thought you might find it interesting to know that he tried to make schools that have GSA's tell parents if their kid is part of one, and out them as what they identify as, thankfully that bill was not passed, but my school actually did an extremely interesting sort of film (They started it before he was elected and thought it was something of the past and then these issues became very real, very fast.) The film was called "One Voice." and although I can't find the link to the full film here's some behind the scenes and information if you'd like to look at it: https://globalnews.ca/news/5239637/film ... n-schools/
It's really well done and I wish they had picked a better time for the interview because that was definitely not one of the greatest locations.
Oh yeah, I might want to mention I go to a visual and performing arts school. I hope it's okay I shared all of that with you, it's just a topic I'm pretty invested in, and at my school we are taught to be activists and stand up when something is not okay. I find out a lot of times for youth walk outs, it's usually students at my school who organise that, and my school doesn't punish us for participating, in fact they encourage us to continue to do more. They also educate us on the ways we can make a difference as youth, whether it be writing our MP's, organising walk outs, or other things. My school also pushes back against climate change, they just installed (I believe 72) solar panels, we will be creating enough energy that we will not only; not be drawing from the grid but also, we will be producing enough to be putting power back into the grid, which is just amazing. We also have an indigenous healing garden (honestly not 100% sure how that's used but it's cool.) and have smudges most days. For me, sexual health is something I'm extremely interested in and I'm so glad I found this site. In Alberta, the curriculum for health and I beleive specifically the sexual health piece is roughly 30 years old, which is a massive problem considering how much research has been done since that 30 year mark, so it depends on what school you go to as to whether or not you're getting a good education on it, especially when it comes to LGBT topics, some people just aren't informed and don't want to take the time to be informed, so it's funny when a 15 year old can answer questions in class that sometimes an adult is unable to. Some people find it strange, I call it educated. However birth control seemed to send me for a loop as you can see.
And thank you for the last piece, I just have to find a way to convince my mom to take me at the moment is the biggest issue at play.
