Archbishop P supports #prolife @hcdsb policies! Will other boards follow? #ottnews @torontostar @nationalpost @cp24 @cbctoronto #toronto @globeandmail #catholic

Now that Archbishop Prendergast has come out in support of HCDSB’s prolife position, will other boards implement their prolife fundraising strategies? They are are already on the books!!


So we commend trustees of the Halton Catholic District School Board for acting amid a torrent of criticism to pass a motion to ensure school fund-raising always aligns with Catholic teaching on life and family. Charitable donations by Halton Catholic schools will no longer go to organizations that “directly or indirectly” support abortion, contraception, sterilization, euthanasia and embryonic stem cell research.

Predictably, in a culture that has diminishing respect for the sanctity of life, the decision was assailed. A Toronto Star editorial panned it as “way off base.” Ontario’s education minister called for further community consulting on the matter. There was no whiff of respect, nor hint of tolerance, for the right of a Catholic institution to act according to its religious beliefs.

There was also dissent from parents and students who saw some of their favourite charities deemed ineligible. This anger was disappointing but not totally surprising. It showed how much work is required still, even in Catholic schools and parishes, to communicate the mission of Catholic education. 

Standing up for life has become one of the great challenges Christians face today. It can be painful. Hundreds of charities will lose government grants to fund summer student jobs after standing on principle and refusing to endorse Liberal abortion ideology. Millions of dollars are at stake. But when Catholic organizations affirm their faith this way, they exhibit the courage of Easter.

Meanwhile we have halton parents like the following.  And student leaders who refuse to say where they stand!!


#OCSB Director cannot say the word Resurrection for Easter! #catholic #ocsblent #ottnews

1 Cor 15:14

And if Christ be not risen again, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain. 


How does one talk about Easter without mentioning the RESURRECTION of CHRIST??  Cultural Catholicism at its worst

Easter is about caring for the planet?? And what parish doesn’t have water in fonts for Lent? A disobedient parish like St Joe’s??

Her greetings reminds us of Justin Trudeau’s Easter greetings which are always about diversity yada yada yada (at least he even mentions Resurrection in passing!)



When I think back to Easter as a young child, I remember with kindness Easter egg hunts, family gatherings, new Spring outfits (usually matching for me and my sisters), even little gifts like skipping ropes and marbles (no doubt to get out outside of the house for a while). It was the day that our Lenten observance came to an end, holy water reappeared in the font at the entrance to our church, the Alleluia was sung once again, and purple vestments and decor gave way to the white of Easter.

While we all have different memories of Easter, we remember what it means to be an Easter people. It’s more than Easter eggs and new Spring outfits, and goes beyond the symbols of our faith. We are called to care for one another, for those who are most in need, and for our planet. We do this daily in our schools. Let’s recommit ourselves, as we journey together in these last three moths of the school year, to be God’s love and spirit at work in our world.

Happy Easter



Justin 2017:

The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today issued the following statement on Easter:

“This weekend, millions of Canadians and people around the world will gather with friends and family to celebrate the Easter holiday. This year is special, as Christians in both the Eastern and Western churches are celebrating Easter on the same day.

“Easter, also known as Pascha, is a sacred time of year in the Christian tradition, and celebrates Jesus Christ’s resurrection and triumph over death.

“The Easter story reminds us of the sacrifices made for us, and of the forgiving power of compassion. It is also a call to hope, especially when hope feels most impossible.

“This year, as we celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation, let us take the opportunity to honour the many cultures, traditions, and beliefs that make Canada such a wonderful place to live. Christian Canadians of all backgrounds help make Canada the strong, diverse, and inclusive country it is today.

“As we gather with those most important to us, let us put into practice what it truly means to love our neighbours as ourselves, and do what we can to make the world a more just, compassionate, and peaceful place for all.

“On behalf of our family, Sophie and I wish all those celebrating a blessed and joyful Easter. We hope all Canadians, no matter their faith, find this a time of renewal and promise.” is banned by the policies of 7+ Ontario #Catholic School boards #prolife




Given the news that refuses to say that they don’t publicly support abortion, contraception etc, the following Boards have EXPLICIT fundraising and/or partnership policies that forbid partnership with WE Day.  They all refer to the tenets or teachings or moral teachings of the CATHOLIC CHURCH (ie, not the students or the Board or the union)

Paragraph 3:



Toronto Catholic School Board

The Toronto Catholic District School Board permits fund raising to be undertaken by its schools. All fund raising activities whether for the school or for an approved organization shall be related to charitable, humanitarian, educational, or service activities consistent with the tenets of Catholicism


York Catholic School

Educational partnerships shall adhere to teachings of the Catholic faith and shall be
aligned with the Board’s supplementary learning resources, policy and procedures.


Dufferin Peel Catholic

“School community” refers to students, parents, guardians, trustees, school administrators and staff, members of the broader community and partners, as well as others who support the local school and student achievement, as represented by the School Council.
All fundraising activities shall have a designated purpose and timeline. Fundraising activities, to support school related needs, shall be permitted according to this policy and regulated as per General Administrative Procedure (GAP) 538.00.
These activities must support the moral teachings of the Catholic Church and shall reflect the mission, values and system direction principles of the Board, and must also comply with current legislation and ministry policies and/or guidelines, which include a component encompassing consultation, transparency and accountability with the school community.


Eastern Ontario (Brockville etc)


c) Executive Council completes a cursory review to ensure each
organization is compliant with the following:
 Municipal, Provincial, Federal Legislation
 School Food & Beverage Policy
 Equity and Inclusive Strategy
 Facility Partner Guidelines
 Teachings/beliefs of the Catholic Church
 Vision & Mission of the Catholic District School Board of
Eastern Ontario ;


Algonquin (Kingston)


Where funds are raised or actions are taken on behalf of organizations, groups, or individuals, schools must be diligent in ensuring that the activities of the organization are consistent with the teachings of the Church and with Catholic moral principles. Areas of particular concern include the dignity of all persons, the common good, human rights and responsibilities, social justice, stewardship for creation, embryonic stem cell research, cloning and some forms of gene manipulation,. Groups engaged in such activities should consult the information and guidelines available on the website of the Board’s Social Justice Committee at…

Embryonic stem cell research is forbidden:

Ottawa also does but their policy on their website is NOT what they passed in 2013!


Obviously Halton Catholic as well!


Renfrew Catholic

page 51 talks about respect for life and consulting Diocesan bishop:



All about Holy Childhood Assoc:




ICE Policy:

Does Cardinal Collins approve of vs some great Catholic organizations???


In entering such partnerships, schools and boards are asked to apply the
following principles appropriately, with due diligence and with application to all
operations, in Canada or abroad, of the potential partner:
a) The basic tenets of Catholic social teaching, namely, the dignity of the human person,
human rights and responsibilities, the common good, solidarity, subsidiary, the preferential option for the poor, respect for life and the value and dignity of human work must all be respected.
b) With regard to the application of these principles boards are requested to look at other models available in the Catholic community, involve other Catholic groups and their diocesan bishop.

Did #OCSB secretly change their partnership policy? Will they ban We Day? #ottnews @cbcottawa

Update: It looks like the Board never bothered to put the new policy up on their website. This looks like the 2004 policy with a 2013 date slapped on it!! How many other policies are wrong on their website?? Do they actually care about policies or ever refer to them??


All the press reports in 2013 say their policies includes references to “Roman Catholic tradition” and “moral teaching”

OCSB’s amended “Partnership, Sponsorship, and Donations” policy

The June 11 amended policy states: “Partnerships and sponsorships with individuals, parish and community groups, business, industry and government shall be forged to ensure respect for the distinctive nature of Catholic education and adherence to the Roman Catholic tradition.


The articles in all the newspapers use the quote “moral teaching”. That is now missing too!

“Archbishop Prendergast reportedly recommended the language about choosing partners who respect “Catholic and social moral teachings” in a meeting with the Director of Education.  Staff also reported that principals have already been informed of the importance of choosing partners that don’t contravene Catholic teaching.  “


But now it reads:

Something is strange at OCSB as their policy dated June 2013 now doesn’t mention Roman Catholic tradition:

Partnerships and sponsorships with individuals, parish and community groups, business, industry and government shall be consistent with the Board’s philosophy, Vision Statement and Catholic Social Teaching.  The principles of Catholic Social Teaching include reference to the dignity of the human person, human rights and responsibilities, common good, solidarity, the preferential option for the poor, and the value and dignity of human work.





Regardless, Free the Children/We Day now  say they cannot sign an HCDSB  document saying the don’t publicly support abortion etc. As well, ample proof has been shown that they do push “reproductive rights” etc. This is against the DIGNITY of the HUMAN PERSON and HUMAN right (ie. the right to life). Therefore, OCSB must dissociate itself from We Day according to its own policies!!


See para 3:








We Day admits they support abortion and contraception! #ottnews @torontostar @nationalpost @cp24 @cbctoronto #prolife @hcdsb #toronto #tcot @globeandmail

Read para 3 (“the above…”). While they say they don’t politically advocate for them, they now say that they cannot sign a statement saying they don’t publicly support abortion and contraception. This is hardly surprising given their support for UN SDG3 and their work with the Globe and Mail and Torstar on teaching materials supporting “repro rights”




And now they have the gall to ask students to rise up and still keep supporting their pro-abort charity! Do the Kielburgers have no shame!!

And 21000 parents and kids have not signed the petition. A majority are proaborts from the USA!!

And those parents who want to defeat the motion, they are like this:




Why don’t the media ask student leaders like Ben Sabourin where they stand on abortion, contraception and ESCR? He refused to be transparent and answer. Is he a fan of Planned Parenthood like the Kielburger brothers? Does he support OECTA when they signed the FAFIA probabort letter or made donations to proabort


Former #OECTA Prez continues Genderbread push. Questions COLF expertise and “ideologies” . #catholicteachers @archtoronto #catholicto #tcdsb

We know that James Ryan has been a big promoter of Genderbread persons in OECTA to teach teachers and children. He must not feel that EGALE is “ideological”.

See the past comments by James Ryan and Kevin Welbes-Godin:


When presented with a whole conference by COLF in 2017 that opposed Gender Fluidity and “Genderbread” concept, James refused to answer some simple questions. It is easy to infer that he thinks COLF is too “ideological” or that COLF and its speakers have no “expertise”.
