Tory youth leader, running for school board, touts abstinence only sex ed

WINNIPEG - A Manitoba Progressive Conservative youth leader and school board candidate has ignited an online backlash for saying she supports abstinence-only sex education.

Candace Maxymowich (max-eh-MAW'-vitch) is running to be a school board trustee in the Louis Riel School Division in Winnipeg.

She wrote on Twitter that she personally does not support sex education other than abstinence.

That prompted dozens of replies from people who called her views backward and said teens need to be educated about ways to use contraception.

Maxymowich later said she was expressing a personal opinion and her view is not something she would necessarily push if elected.

She became the provincial Tory youth leader after her predecessor, Braydon Mazurkiewich (mah-ZUHR'- kah-wich), was ousted for making racist comments on Facebook about aboriginals. -CP-
