Attendees of a parental rights gathering organized by the 1 Million March 4 Children group had to wrap up early after a group of pro-trans activists made a scene. This incident occurred during a speech by women’s and parental rights activist Meghan Murphy.
Following the incident, Meghan Murphy took to social media and said, “The trans activist terrorists won. They rushed the stage and the cops had to shut down the entire event halfway through my speech because it was too dangerous for us to continue.”
In a video clip shared by another user, a police officer can be seen addressing an event attendee, stating, “Now, I will pull the plug… I will pull the plug… turn it off, or I’m walking over there right now! Right now!”
This incident occurred in Victoria, Canada and resulted in the police eventually shutting Murphy’s speech down due to safety concerns. The user who posted the video wrote, “Here’s the clip from the TRA rushing the stage. I kinda feel like that cop just wanted to stop you all from speaking. Maybe I’m wrong…”

Meghan Murphy responded to the clip, acknowledging that the police appeared unprepared to handle the protesters. She said, “He was freaked out and they were unprepared to deal with the protesters. Which they should have been.”
1 Million March 4 Children is an advocacy group that opposes the perceived indoctrination of children in schools, particularly concerning promoting LGBT agendas. Parents need the authority to make choices concerning their children’s upbringing and education.
Meanwhile, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau took the opportunity to “condemn” what he called “hate.” To be precise, “Transphobia, homophobia, and biphobia,” on the same day as the 1 Million March 4 Children rallies. He also thinks parental rights are a “far right” political issue.
He expressed his views on social media, “We strongly condemn this hate and its manifestations, and we stand united in support of 2SLGBTQI+ Canadians across the country. You are valid and you are valued.”
It is worth noting that Canada’s CBC, a state-funded outlet, has faced criticism for its biased reporting on the matter. They claim critics and researchers agree that the term “parental rights” is a “misnomer” as it does not encompass the concerns of LGBTQ parents or parents of LGBTQ children.
In education, parents are not mere spectators— they are essential partners. Their role in their children’s education is pivotal. Parents play a vital part in instilling fundamental values at home and actively engaging with schools while advocating for their children’s needs.
They provide valuable insights, promote accountability, instill morals and enrich the educational experience with various perspectives. Recognizing parents as active participants in their children’s education is necessary.
The goal is to ensure every child receives a well-rounded and personalized education that aligns with their unique needs and values. When parents have their voices heard and are empowered to make these decisions, we reinforce the foundation of a more robust and successful educational system.
