Ontario's anti-bullying law called a 'Trojan Horse' by opponents

Its not just the Vancouver School Board that's trying to ram through loaded anti-bullying policies. Canada's Catholic eye on Ottawa, Deborah Gyapong, attended a protest organized by the Campaign Life Coalition who said Ontario's anti-bullying law Bill-13 is a "Trojan Horse:"
That’s the message Campaign Life Coalition public affairs officer Johanne Brownrigg brought to about 140 mostly-Catholic Ottawa residents who demonstrated June 1 against the legislation outside one of Premier Dalton McGuinty’s constituency offices.

“We are not here as a group of gay bashers,” Brownrigg told the small crowd that had been harangued by a small group of counter-protestors who chanted “Hey hey! Ho! Ho! Homophobia ‘s got to go!” or “Racist, Sexist, Anti-Gay, Born-again Bigots, Go away!” They wore signs that said, “Jesus had two dads and he turned out okay.”
