2 Cor 4:2 Rather, we have renounced secret and shameful ways; we do not use deception, nor do we distort the word of God. On the contrary, by setting forth the truth plainly we commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God.

Interesting points:

In some boards, upwards of a quarter of elementary school students and their parents or guardians did not have a baptismal certificate.

 

In an e-mail marked “Confidential” and sent to directors of education and chairs just days after The Globe sent its FOI requests to the 29 school boards, OCSTA president Patrick Daly said the association was in “the process of obtaining a legal opinion on the obligations of school boards to disclose this information to the media,” he said in the letter, obtained through a subsequent FOI request.

 

The Ottawa Catholic board says on its website that non-Catholic children “will be welcomed on a space availability basis” – but also noted that space is available in all its elementary schools. Data obtained by The Globe shows that 26 per cent of its students (7,382 out of 28,128) were “not flagged as Catholic” in the 2016-17 academic year.

 

“Without those non-Catholic kids, those schools would be seriously under-enrolled and under threat of closure,” Mr. Baak said. “The only time non-Catholic kids are welcome is when they need a few more warm, grant-generating bodies to boost the enrolment of a school to make it more cost-effective so that it won’t close. They do not do this out of the goodness of their heart.”

=============

Our points:

OCSB is one of the most aggressive in advertising and getting non-Catholics to go to their elementary schools.

The OCSTA is known for trying to avoid FOI requests. Also, for not telling whole truth of exemption from religion classes.

OCSB has watered down their Catholicism to make it so generic that Muslim kids and atheists are 100% comfortable (also their pseudo-Catholic teachers).

OCSB has a huge advertising budget (the $2XX thousand does not include salaries.)
