Mysterious slate of right-wing school board candidates on Vernon, Kelowna ballots

Kelowna’s new political slate is right-wing — but how right wing?


This is Parents Voice BC

Parents Voice BC is a social conservative party that shelters anti-SOGI 123 activists, transphobia, religious fundamentalism, the convoy/freedom movement, and COVID-related conspiracy theories. Parents Voice BC is recommended by Action4Canada.  

Action4Canada promotes far-right extremism based in religious fundamentalism. From their website: “Our mission is to protect Canada’s rich heritage which is founded on Judeo-Christian biblical principles. Inherited through our British Commonwealth and embedded in the Magna Carta, these principles form our laws and values and are the basis of a system of governance that sets us apart from totalitarian, extremist and communist regimes.” (Others might describe that as “white supremacist-flavoured Christofascism.”) They rally against SOGI education, LGBT2S+ rights, Islam, abortions, climate change science, immigration, and 5G. Action4Canada predates the pandemic, but quickly began rallying against public health mandates, vaccines, and basic medical science.
