Phil Lees devoted most of his working career, 29 years, to public education – teacher, school board education consultant, university instructor, Ontario Ministry of Education consultant.


In the mid 1990’s, as a result of his 10 year old daughter being exposed to the highly controversial and explicit sexual health curriculum, Phil began to research the curriculum trends and organized a local community parent group that brought forward medically accurate, evidence based information that supported traditional values on human sexual activity. The result… the school board adopted an abstinence-based curriculum, Planned Parenthood was no longer allowed to teach in the schools, and within 2 years teen pregnancies in the City of Hamilton dropped by 22 percent!
