Civil Rights in Public Education

As you know, Canada has a separate school system run in the name of the Catholic religion. At this meet-up, we will be examining questions concerning religious-based education and public funding for religion.

Mainly, we will be taking a look at part of a CFI Ontario Panel Discussion on the subject. Here is the video on CFI’s You-tube channel (for those who just can’t wait!).

Another video with Justin Trottier on this issue:

Here also is an article on the subject from the Canadian Encyclopedia:

And several websites mainly focused on the Ontario dispute over separate schools from a few years ago, but with resources worth checking out:
