I might as well respond to the question since the line behind the mikes was still very long when the question was called Friday. I would want the NDP opposition to support the government in ending funding to Catholic funding the same way the opposition supported a similar resolution in Quebec.
Now, having travelled the byways of Ontario and read the billboards proclaiming his lord's imminent return, I realize that Ontario isn't as much of a secular province as Quebec and may resist an attack on this tradiiton of supporting the 'natural ruling religion'.
Now, I'm a non-believer. (As Margaret Atwood points out, an atheist BELIEVES there is no god.) As an educator I'm willing to teach anyone no matter what their beliefs. But I don't think tax dollars should help indoctinate people. As a member of the equity steering committee dealing with issues of sexual orientation, I don't want to fund institutionalized bigotry.
I may even concede that the Catholic church provided a positive role in socializing the country during our fractuous beginning. But they have new schools, they have been rewarded, they can start pulling their own freight like the rest of the religious communities in our province.
