Face it. You (your children) are treated special because of your religion. You are given a guaranteed choice that may be denied to all others simply because of your religion.
Then it is about time.
Obviously the history of our Province has been forgotten. And because we, as Catholics Taxpayers have been able to use our tax dollars to the ultimate advantage in improving the school system, should be in no way a reason for anyone to criticize and try to claw that away from us.
So tell me then, you would agree with this statement?
Let me see if I understand the ontario premier. If I want my child to have good protestant values, I need to pay? It is really unfortunate that he made this choice, he had the opportunity to do what a premier should do: lead.
No, the public school system allowed administrators appointed to watch over the school system to leave it in the state it is. It has nothing to do with Politicians or Catholics. You watched it happen as they took away Protestant values. The prayer in the Morning with Oh Canada. The Christmas, and Easter decoration to be abollished. In the mission of appeasing the politically correct, you allowed that to happen. Don’t come crying now.
In fact, as a person who was educated in the public school system, I am thoroughly appalled that it is in such a state, that people would have to crush the Catholic school system to gain improvements.
Further to these “Second Class Citizen” comments everyone is bandying about, please site me hard documented examples where this has happened, where a non Catholic was either denied or made to wait in line, and being bumped behind Catholics. Further to that, I would like to also see the bad cases compared to the students of non-Catholic denomination that were allowed an education in that school system with out any challenges.
That is what irks me, MCG. No matter how thinly veiled the comments are, they are insulting.
