At first I thought it was a great move, but now I'm not so sure. Andrew at Christian Conservative points out that if the school boards are able to exert too much control over the faith-based schools, then it might have the effect of causing these religious groups not to vote PC.
Yet others like Frank Dimant of B'nai Brith think this control is important so that tolerance is taught in all schools.
Public boards are railing against any special funding for faith-based schools; including the Catholic ones.
O.K. If I can't vote for McGuinty, the reasons of which fall under the category res ipsa loquitur, and I can't vote for Tory, because of this mess and the fact that he really isn't a Tory, what's left? The NDP? I don't think so. (Memories of Rae)
Stay home? I can't do that.
Spoil my ballot?
Looks like the system did that to me already.

Update: U.A. - John Tory the best candidate by default? (And that, my friends is probably the honest truth. It's a sad day for Ontario.)
