Sex exhibition draws complaints

Catholic Civil Rights League disgusted at controversial show
The Canada Museum of Science and Technology will display a controversial exhibit on sex until the end of the year. The Catholic Civil Rights League sent a letter to Canada's heritage minister James Moore requesting him to review the government's funding of the exhibit.Deborah Gyapong / CCN.
The B.C. Catholic has a story from CCN's Deborah Gyapong about a controversial sex exhibition opening May 17 at the The Canada Museum of Science and Technology in Ottawa:

The Catholic Civil Rights League has written to the Canadian Heritage Minister to ask him to review the funding of a controversial sex exhibit aimed at adolescents at the Canadian Museum of Science and Technology.

“Based on information from the museum’s own website, as well as on information provided to a local contact during a preview, I find this material is far too advanced and detailed for the age group for which it is intended, and in any case has little if anything to do with the museum’s stated mandate ‘to help the public to understand the ongoing relationships between science, technology and Canadian society,’" wrote League executive director Joanne McGarry to Heritage Minister James Moore.
