The co-author of a book, which calls God a “fat black dyke—financed by all three levels of the Canadian government—was the 2004 recipient of a Governor General award.
Chi Nguyen, of Ottawa, co-authored St. Stephen’s Community House’s The Little Black Book: A Guide to Sexual Health for Grrrls by Grrils.
Five years later, under a slightly revised title, The Little Black Book for Girlz: A Book on Healthy Sexuality was posted online at the beginning of the 2006 school year.
The book was listed in Wal-Mart’s catalog, selling for $11.58 each. But according to today’s WorldNetDaily, the retail giant pulled the book from its website within minutes of their lead story yesterday.
”Wal-Mart is refusing to explain,” Bob Unruh wrote.
A Status of Women Canada media communiqué explains the Governor General’s Awards in Commemoration of the Persons Case. “Like so much of the history of women in Canada, the Persons Case was forgotten for 50 years. In 1979, on the 50th anniversary of the Privy Council’s historic decision, the Government of Canada instituted the Governor General’s Awards in Commemoration of the Persons Case to recognize outstanding contributions to the quality of life of women in Canada. The awards are presented annually at a ceremony in October.”
(The “Persons” Case, 1927-1929 allowed women to be appointed to the Senate of Canada.)
“Recipients of these Awards continue the tradition of courage, integrity and hard work with the Famous Five the Persons Case inspired. Their effectiveness and courage has advanced the cause of equality for girls and women in significant and substantial ways that have enriched their communities. “Five awards are given annually to candidates chosen from across Canada, in addition to one Youth Award,” says Status of Women.
“Chi Nguyen is a recent graduate of McGill University where her interest in Canadian politics unfolded when she found Women in House in 2001. This program matches students with a female political leader in a two-day job-shadowing experience in Ottawa. Ms. Nguyen has also been active in many community initiatives from educating young women about their sexual health to improving their political knowledge and democratic participation. Currently she sits on the Board of Directors for the Canadian Women’s Health Network and the steering committee of a new national foundation on reproductive health in Canada: Canadians for Choice. In 2001, she co-authored St. Stephen’s Community House’s The Little Black Book: A Guide to Sexual Health for Grrrls by Grrrls. Already a YWCA Young Woman of Distinction Award winner in 1999 for her work on Venus Magazine and for her community work in Toronto, Ms. Nguyen has and undoubtedly will continue to make an impact on women’s and gender equality.”
It is not clear whether the $7.8 million government-funded St. Stephen’s Community House contracted out for a co-author for The Little Black Book or whether the co-author was already an in-house activist at the social agency.
St. Stephen’s Community House developed the book as an “educational” project to reinforce Canada’s Same Sex Marriage legislation. Educators are now required to teach the new law redefining marriage to all school children.
“Including a chapter entitled “My first time F***ing a Girl and providing explicit instructions on how to perform oral, anal and other sex acts, those who counsel against it—especially parents—are derisively dismissed as bigots.” (Stop Government-funded Same Sex Indoctrination”, ( <a href=http://www.canadafreepress.com/2006/mcvety091506.htm>www.canadafreepress.com, Sept. 15, 2006</a href>).
The Canadian government, which has thus far ignored public outrage, has kept the obscene book as part of official school curriculum. Also among the unknowns is whether the co-author, the social agency or the three levels of Canadian government who funded the Little Black Book to the tune of $7.8-million would receive royalties should Wal-Mart decide to keep the book on its shelves.
In Canada, politics has long played a role in the classroom.
The all-Canadian Little Black Book is as much a part of school curriculum as grade school Science textbooks that come with a picture of Global Warming guru David Suzuki warning 6-year-old kids that man is largely responsible for killing the ozone layer.
Meanwhile, one of the three levels of government who funded the group who created the book was returned to City Hall in Monday’s landslide municipal election.
The cash-strapped, Mayor David Miller-led civic government donated $1,175,744 to St. Stephen’s Community House, and is headed into 2007’s budget deliberations with a $500,000-million shortfall.
