Save re­li­gion for home

RE: It’s time for one school sys­tem (July 13)

Thanks to Tom Ro­den for out­lin­ing in such a clear way all the rea­sons why we need one pub­licly-funded school sys­tem in On­tario!

It is hugely un­just that, in 2017, one re­li­gious group is favoured over all oth­ers. Just be­cause it made sense in 1867 does not mean that fol­lows to­day. Log­i­cally, the al­ter­na­tive would be to fund ev­ery re­li­gious group — and how wrong that would be. Let’s bring our stu­dents to­gether — and save re­li­gious teach­ing for the home or for pri­vately-funded schools.

We need to call our MPPs and urge them to do the right thing now! Maybe we can save one school in each of our smaller com­mu­ni­ties. Carol Town, Hamil­ton
