Yes. David Warren is at it again!
He is the main reason why I don’t subscribe to the Shitizen anymore. I couldn’t sleep knowing that some of my $$’s were going towards his salary!
And yet again, he is either sickly misinformed or an outright liar…
The separate existence of a Catholic school system is a legacy of the past, under constitutional protection that has been consistently upheld in the courts. Getting rid of it is impossible. But defunding might be politically feasible as a way to obviate that legacy, and force a merger of the two systems in practice.
No. That is wrong. School support designations on municipal property assessments have no effect on total school board funding, which is determined solely by enrolment and other documented needs.
Ontario is now the only province that funds the religious schools of the Catholic faith exclusively, a situation that led the United Nations Human Rights Committee to censure Canada for religious discrimination in 1999 and again in 2005.
Of course, David Warren does live in his own little world where angels and faeries are commonplace, so he is likely blissfully unaware of reality.
Or he’s a liar.
