Bill13: Accepting Schools

The same sex inclusivity motions approved at  Windsor AGM 2012 were in response to Ontario Bill 13: The Accepting Schools Act. However, not everyone agrees with the motions, nor for that matter Bill 13, although they did pass by a large margin. Member Steve O. has forwarded us a Youtube Link to a Family Coalition Party video that can help explain the concern with the bill's focus. 

I explained the pro and con arguments given during the Windsor AGM motion's debate in my March 13th: Rights and Sexual Identity Blog. This video perhaps better helps explain and develop our understanding of the lingering controversy surrounding Bill 13, from the Catholicity perspective of those have contacted me to voice their concerns. Indeed, Steve writes:




This is a link to a video that shows the fallacies and unethical policies of Bill-13. You may want to post it on your blog and send it to everyone.

Here is the link:

As you will note the video emphasizes concern regarding:

-Religious Rights
-Religious Instruction
-Special Interest Groups and Issues.

It is critical of both the Ontario Liberal position and the provincial Conservative Party's approach to passage of the Bill.

Thanks for sharing this with us Steve!

For more information on Bill 13, please also check our OECTA Provincial website:

for the upcoming May 4 and 5th Equity Conference in Toronto. Lawyer Paul Cavalluzzo will be present to discuss the legal aspects of Bill 13 and it's implementation in our Catholic schools. Whatever your position, here's the video and please apply for the conference to learn more about the complex issues and controversy surrounding Bill 13. We need to face this together knowledgeably as Catholic teachers!
      

             

Bullying is a big problem at school. At least 1/3 of us can remember being bullied. This problem needs to stop!
