The “1 Million March For Kids” is scheduled for Wednesday morning and a number of groups are committed to opposing it. This should get interesting.
Kamel El-Cheikh, a Muslim dad, organized the protest that is happening in cities all across Canada. News organizations are saying that it as big a challenge to law enforcement as the 2022 Freedom Convoy.
Like El-Cheikh, a lot of Muslims in Canada — many of whom are immigrants — have had it with the cult-like gender ideology that is being relentlessly shoved at kids in schools, and they’re done playing the “Polite Canadian” game.
Last summer, after Billboard Chris and Josh Alexander’s successful “Education Over Indoctrination” event in June, Muslim parents started organizing and protesting on their own, and it’s spectacular.
Here they are in front of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s office demanding that the militant Pride Progress flag be taken down and replaced with a Canadian flag.
“The flag needs to go!”

Soon after that, El-Cheikh began organizing the “1 Million March For Kids” inviting Canadians from all faiths and backgrounds to join together and oppose the grooming of kids into leftist gender ideology.
Will you join the million plus Canadians standing up together from Coast to Coast and saying NO to Gender Ideology and the sexualization of children in schools on Wed, Sept 20.

The backlash against this has been pretty amazing.
At first, Leftists didn’t really know what to do since it was largely organized by Muslims, but as the protest expanded to city after city, they knew that they had to do something to oppose it.
Trantifa, Rainbow Groomers, and the Transhausen Mommies are gathering (masked, of course) to counter-protest.
In addition, large unions that push far-left policies have come together to smear the protest as “extreme far-right.”
Video of a “secret” meeting was shared online.
A nice fellow Canadian transcribed it. https://t.co/ek7XNe7Twc

A few unions posted on X (formerly Twitter) their opposition to the protest. I’m sure they received consent from all of their members before doing so, right?
The Canadian Union of Postal Employees (CUPE) is a very powerful union in Canada with the Ontario chapter alone boasting over 280,000 members. The CUPE Ontario X account states that the union “campaigns for legislative and political change to defend public services, communities, equity, and workers’ rights.”
They called it a protest organized by the “ultra-conservative right.”
The ultra-conservative right has organized nationwide events under the pretext of protecting children, while their true aim is to protest the teaching of 2SLGBTQIA+ content in schools.
Our mission is clear: to counter these protests and demonstrate unequivocally that there is no… pic.twitter.com/5Iq2OTDSMS

Ontario Public Service Employees Union, representing more than 180,000 government employees across the province claims that the protest is organized by “hate groups.”
Hate groups are organising anti-2SLGBTQ+ rallies on Sept 20 and we’re are coming together to say: Enough is enough!
Stand up against hate — find a local counter-demo or organise your own. https://t.co/37VJSjNXVt#onlab #WorkersUnitedAgainstHate #NoSpaceForHate

The British Columbia Federation of Labour also weighed in, apparently siding with “trans people” against the “anti-trans rallies.”
In the face of hate, BC’s labour movement stands in solidarity with trans people. Our statement on the anti-trans rallies planned for Wednesday, September 20: https://t.co/GhI1kxqPBH #BCLab #BCPoli #NoSpaceForHate pic.twitter.com/IV1kVqhAU2

The Ontario Elementary Teachers’ union is doubling down on pushing the gender stuff under the guise of having “inclusive” schools.
It is more important than ever that we work to establish inclusive and safe communities and schools for 2SLGBTQ+ students, educators and parents.

It’s so absurd that unions which claim to be just about advocating for workers’ rights are deciding to pick a side on an issue like this one. A lot of their members are parents, after all. According to a recent poll, the vast majority of Canadians don’t like the way that gender ideology is being shoved into classrooms and that kids are being socially transitioned behind their parents’ backs.
But then, Neo-Marxists gonna Neo-Marxist, right?
Decoding the transcript from the leaked CUPE meeting against parents rights is hilarious.
These people are fully steeped in far-left neo-Marxist politics.
They’re 100% communists. pic.twitter.com/mCLknU80Kn

This could backfire in a very, very bad way.
Kamel El-Cheikh has posted a video and said that if there are counter-protests by teachers, unions, or the Rainbow Mafia, the gloves are off. They should expect the same at every event — every Pride Parade, every Drag Show… everything.

Having Muslims protest en masse every Rainbow event during Rainbow Season would make Libs heads explode.
The thing is, protest and, yes, counter-protest is fine in Canada. El-Cheikh shouldn’t be telling people to stay home — they have just as much right to counter-protest as he does to protest. But the larger point, I think, is that although many Canadians don’t like the new iteration of the ever-expanding 2SLBGTQIA+ that includes critical gender theory, there haven’t been organized protests against their events. Pride Parades go on without much of a counter despite the hysteria in the media fearmongering about the rampant “anti-LGBTQ+ hate” in Canada leading up to the events.
Nevertheless, some of the other activists pushing back on the gender indoctrination of kids is pointing that this is not helpful for a peaceful movement made up of parents.
This guy’s messaging is not helpful, to say the least, and his numbers are delusional.
Counter-protestors are more than welcome. That’s what happens in a free society. Plus, they’re generating huge amounts of free media.
Thank you, counter-protestors.
Also, this isn’t about… https://t.co/T3rBvrcxpn

No, sorry. Those who disagree have every right to counter protest, and as a freedom loving Canadian, I respect their right to have their message heard too. I am not protesting anyone’s “lifestyle,” either, and that is irrelevant to me.
Kids are being indoctrinated to believe:

Of course, your intrepid Canuck correspondent will be in Ottawa at the protest, just like I was last time.
Stay tuned, this could be epic!
