School Board Suspends Catholicism at Ontario Catholic Schools

Edit: meanwhile, Salt and Light, CCCB, Crux will have nothing meaningful to say.

[The Globe and Mail] An Ontario Catholic school board has suspended a controversial policy that forbids students from raising money for charities that support abortion, euthanasia and other activities opposed by the church.

After months of outcry from many parents and students and criticism from the province’s Education Minister about a lack of consultation, trustees at the Halton Catholic District School Board voted on Tuesday night to pause the implementation of the board’s “Sanctity of Life” policy until after it had received and considered feedback from the wider school community.

Trustees first passed a motion in February stating it would no longer provide or facilitate financial donations to non-profits or charities that publicly support, “either directly or indirectly, abortion, contraception, sterilization, euthanasia, or embryonic stem cell research.”
