Coalition Calls for Defunding of Catholic Boards, End to Discrimination Against Gays in Publicly Funded Schools

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 8, 2011) -


The Canadian Secular Alliance and its allies are hosting a rally in front of the Legislature at Queen's Park on September 18 from 1:30-3:30 p.m. to demand:

• The end of the over $500 million taxpayer subsidization for the promotion of the Roman Catholic religion. Public funding for the expensive duplicate school system must be eliminated to provide one secular publicly funded school system.

• The protection of equality rights for all students—including gay students—by ending the constitutional privilege afforded Roman Catholics to overrule legislation and the courts in favour of religious dogma.

"Equality for all students means ending privileged access to public schools for favoured religious services," says CSA President Greg Oliver.

Speakers represent a cross section of the religious and non-religious.
