As Doug Ford‘s regime squirms, discovering new, confusing feelings, over its plans for teaching the Ontario’s yout’ about sex, (Party like it’s 1998! No, 2014! Whatever, just keep our goat-farming minister of education incommunicado and on the move!) a hasty curriculum rewrite has been underway all week.
And wielding the blue pencil is none other than our old friend Jenni Byrne. Her job title is principal secretary to the preem, but damage control is her file. So she’s been ensconced on the 22nd floor at Ministry of Education world headquarters trying to pull together new marching orders for teachers six weeks before the buses roll again.
Childless, unless you count her tutelage of erstwhile legover Pierre Polievre, our Jen does come equipped with a finely attuned sniffer for so-con sensitivities, as honed in the office of President Steve.
More recently, Jenni busted up Vince Gasparro’s marriage. Who he? The stickman former Liberal candidate is now co-chair of John Tory’s mayoral re-election campaign. He’s also the CEO of a Toronto ‘acquisition’ investment firm, with strong links to Stronach-land.
But we digress. What shall we call the body parts? No-noes or baddy-no-noes? Masturbation? Let’s not and confess we did. Same-sexing? Pervs. Corgi-shaving? Certainly not before grade 12.
With 227 pages to rewrite, Jenni has had a busy week.
