In Canada, heroic, faithful Catholic school trustees and their supporters have sadly not received the strong support they needed and desperately sought from the province’s Catholic bishops in the battle over the province’s imposition of a pro-homosexual equity policy for all schools. The Catholicity of the separate school system has already been severely compromised for years by the pro-gay Catholic teacher’s union, poor teacher formation and very weak curriculum materials. The question being asked now by some is whether there will actually be much left worth saving as a “Catholic” system after the equity policy is implemented - even if it is slightly better than the public schools’ version. However, it is worth noting that more and more Catholic schools are sending students to the annual March for Life in Ottawa. That is having a major positive impact on the students that come to the march and especially the youth conference.
