#Ottnews New #OCSB policy shows how parents can get kids’ exemption from heretical Religion Classes

The new policy is closer to following the law. The demand for a “reason” is awful. The Simcoe County Catholic Board has already been taken to the Human Rights Commission for having an overly arduous process.

Please note the 8 weeks notice. So, get your MPAC changed ASAP to the Public Board. Your children can still go to the school and their can be ZERO punishments.

A reason can be “conflict with home religious values”. There is NO invalid reason, but it’s better to make a good reason that the principal cannot argue with (another one is the Parent is Primary Educator and you believe that the religion classes are inappropriate for your children)

 When demanding an exemption from CARFLEO/OECTA Religion classes, please remember to include the notice that no admin, teacher or guidance counsellor should talk in any way to your child about this matter. This is only a matter between parent and Principal. In fact, regardless of whether your child takes religion class or not, goes to Public or “catholic” school, a note should be sent to the Principal etc (and kept on file) that there should be NO meetings with any guidance counsellor and child without a parent present.

Guidance counsellors are often “attack vectors” that divide a parent and child. We have heard several stories about this and felt the need to warn parents.

#OCSB and its SECRET contracts #ottnews #onted #onpoli

Why is OCSB trying to keep its contracts with private academies operating within its schools secret?? One can only speculate why a government official is so adamant to keep things secret when the IPC Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario says contracts should be made public.

A nice request was made for contracts between OCSB and Canadian Topflight Academy. Our friend received these nasty paragraphs in various emails.




It is 100% clear that contracts do NOT contain confidential business information and are to be made public!!

see MO-3178 page 32
 Miller Transit Limited v Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario et al, 2013 ONSC 7139 (CanLII), Miller Transit and York Region argued that a union was not entitled to copies of parts of a contract for bus services between Miller Transit and York Region. The Ontario Privacy Commissioner disagreed and found that the information in the contract was not supplied by Miller Transit. The Ontario Privacy Commissioner took the position that the content of a contract with a government institution and a third party is presumed to have been generated in the give and take of negotiations, and not “supplied” by the third party. The Divisional Court upheld the decision of the Ontario Privacy Commissioner
 Alarm bells should go off when the issue of impacting a secret business relationship is more important than disclosing information to taxpayers who pay for the classrooms, gyms and sports fields that these private for-profit academies now have access to.
We don’t even know how many of the CTA students are Catholic or were previously students at OCSB. Unlike other academies that actually run their own schools, CTA gets to use OCSB facilities (at no cost) including exclusive use of a private classroom.  How do the students on the “regular” school basketball team feel?

People who have manifest determination for Euthanasia to be denied Sacramental Anointing #cdnpoli #ottnews

Why does Justin Trudeau (promote of euthanasia (refused to use notwithstanding clause), and huge promoter of abortion) think that he can waltz in and receive Eucharist on national TV in front of 25 Bishops and Cardinals??


Archbishop Prendergast is to be praised for not allowing the Sacrament of Anointing to be Abused.

This came out this week:






Manifest determination 73. Th e most challenging situation is one in which the person requesting anointing, or for whom anointing has been requested, has made clear and public his or her intention to seek out medical assistance in committing suicide or death by euthanasia. Again, careful discernment must be achieved through conversation with the person. If there is any indication that death by these procedures is being contemplated as an example to promote their practice, the priest must point out that such an intention takes on “the gravity of a scandal” (CCC, 2282). If obstinately maintained, the intention is a clear indication of lack of disposition. Th e sacrament is to be deferred


++ Prendergast has also been firm on divorced and remarried people (without a nullity) NOT receiving communion. Thank you for defending LIFE ++Prendergast!! :


@JustinTrudeau breaks Church ban on communion #cdnpoli #ottnews #catholic

At 122eucharist



PM Trudeau, in his Rainbow socks, received communion (eucharist) today at the 375 anniversary mass. This was broadcast live on CTV  and cbc Montreal . At 1:20:52 sharp




This is PROLIFE Week in the Catholic Church in Canada. And Justin has the gall to receive communion after he has been not to??

Why did the Bishops allow this? Why did they give him a place of honour to speak at a Mass? After all he done to promote abortion and euthanasia? and take away conscience rights of doctors.

Journalists need to ask Justin why he disrespects the rules. Or will they give him a pass, unlike what they did for Harper?



Ottawa’s Auxiliary Bishop Christian Riesbeck has warned that there is a possibility that Canon Law 915 could be enforced against Justin Trudeau to deny him Holy Communion if he does not back off his decision to ban pro-life candidates from running for nominations to represent the Liberal Party of Canada in the next federal election.

Canon Law states that those who are “obstinately persevering in manifest grave sin are not to be admitted to Holy Communion.

Bishop Riesbeck: “Out of concern for safeguarding the reverence that is due Our Lord in the Eucharist and to avoid scandal, one could possibly apply this norm even in the case of a pro-abortion Catholic politician who is extremely vocal about his position”

Archbishop Prendergast (Justin’s Bishop!) in 2008:


I interviewed Archbishop Prendergast on the issue recently and he revealed what seems to be a hidden truth in the abortion and communion debate.  He explained that denial of Holy Communion to pro-abortion politicians is an act of love for the Catholic politician him or herself – an act meant to call the politician back to the truth.  Prendergast said: “The Church’s concern is for anyone who persists in grave sin, hoping that medicinal measures may draw them away from the wrong path to the truth of our faith.” He said that “medicinal” remedies such as “denial of communion” are employed to “draw them back to the way of Christ, Our Lord, the Way, the Truth and the Life.”

See all the Bishops and Cardinals there?





Why is Archdiocese of Ottawa promoting a conference of Priestly ordination of women? #catholic

More oversight is needed in their communications to parishes and the public!

POLITE letters to the Archbishop please

CNWE pushes ordination of women to the priesthood and abortion!

#OECTA and #OCSB SILENT on abortion! #marchforlife #whywemarch

Official OECTA twitter stream and that of President and Former President had no time to make ONE tweet supporting march for life and anti-abortion. But they has time for zoo workers and to march a rainbow flag down Bay Streeet!

OECTA rainbow

OECTA Rainbow 2

OECTA also marched with UNIFOR down Bay Street. Meanwhile, numerous UNIFOR flags were at the pro-abortion side protests in Ottawa (along with signs with crude words for female body parts!!). Yep,OECTA’s “brothers and sisters”





Did Ottawa Catholic School Board do any better today?? NOPE

Zero prolife tweets or Facebook postings.

They had a May the 4th be with you!

may 4th


Of course, the ocsb oecta local always has their annual huge retirement dinner at same time as the Rose Dinner. How convenient. Not that many ocsb teachers woukd darken the doors of a prolife dinner


Those that are silent for the unborn may experience this:

He said to them, 24 “Make every effort to enter through the narrow door,because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to. 25 Once the owner of the house gets up and closes the door, you will stand outside knocking and pleading, ‘Sir, open the door for us.’

But he will answer, ‘I don’t know you or where you come from.’

26 “Then you will say, ‘We ate and drank with you, and you taught in our streets.’

27 “But he will reply, ‘I don’t know you or where you come from. Away from me, all you evildoers!’

28 “There will be weeping there, and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, but you yourselves thrown out. 29 People will come from east and west and north and south, and will take their places at the feast in the kingdom of God. 30 Indeed there are those who are last who will be first, and first who will be last.”

Former #OECTA Prez tweets 10 times making excuses to not do ONE anti-abortion tweet #catholic #prolife #catholicteachers #clc2017

A friend asked Jimmy Ryan to tweet a selfie with an anti-abortion image. He said he wasn’t into selfies.

That was not true.




Then he spent 7 tweets talking about capital punishment, poverty, Trump Health care etc etc.. And those were his prolife focuses (they are really called foci). Apparently 100,000 abortions in Canada doesn’t warrant a retweet of a Campaign Life M4L tweet, but he can expend the effort to send 10 tweets making excuses for not doing so.




@OttawaDaddy To fight for safe work places so that no Westray disasters happen again is to be prolife.


Yes, 26 men died 25 years ago in Westray mine. A terrible tragedy.

2.5M babies have been murdered in Canada since then. 500 babies will be killed today in Canada. So when an OECTA person tells you they are prolife, know exactly what they mean. It is mine safety!!



We obviously don’t expect an anti-abortion tweet from current OECTA Prez, Ann Hawkins. She is an official signatory of the FAFIA pro-abort document (as is OECTA itself). She also tweets “pro-choice” tweets like this:
