Holy crap, I went to Catholic schools in Ontario as a kid and we NEVER were taught creationism. I always assumed that that was a fundamentalist protestant (fringe) fixation!?!?

me too, sparqui, most of my school life was in the 'other (Catholic) system - I even taught in the system for a bit..... in fact if they had anything to comment about "creationism' it was disparaging. (and that includes Catholic Universities)

fern: "John Tory has lost the election with that bit of genius." yes - I think of poor Colin Powell, standing before the UN, proclaiming words that guarenteed he would never have even a shot at being President.

Yeah, I've never heard of a Catholic school teaching creationism. Well, except to laugh at it as a silly theory. Sure hope that's not changing!

This is where we were talking about John Tory. So.

It's all over the place, so no link (and because I'm tired and lazy). Go to Prog Blogs.

First, it was rumoured/leaked that Tory was going to backtrack on religious school funding. Then he said at some lunch today that he'd allow a free vote on it. He says he has listened to the voters.

Jeebers. And he has the gall to talk about 'leadership'?

Where do we get these assholes? Do we really deserve them?

In Manitoba, instead of calling this statutary holiday by the same name that Saskatchewan and Alberta gave it, they consulted school kids in the province, who came up with"Louis Riel' Day.

Sometimes I really get a kick out of being in Manitoba. Seeing what they did to name the holiday (and what the kids came up with) is one of those times.
