What year is it Mr. McGuinty? 1985 or 2007?



    TORONTO, Sept. 20 /CNW/ -

    
    "The Loyal Orange Association does not support the segregation of children
. . . and takes a dim view of any further extended Government funding for such
an endeavour."
        The Loyal Orange Association Response to Bill 30: Roman Catholic
        Separate Schools and Public Taxes, July/August 1985

    "If you want the kind of Ontario where we invite children of different
faiths to leave the publicly funded system and become sequestered and
segregated in their own private schools, then they should vote for Mr. Tory."
        Dalton McGuinty, National Post, Thursday, August 23, 2007

    "The use of public funds to extend the parochial education . . . poses
potential dangers to the future."
        The Loyal Orange Association Response to Bill 30: Roman Catholic
        Separate Schools and Public Taxes, July/August 1985

    "I am saying to voters do not even flirt with this dangerous policy. This
is a ship that will not float. This is the greatest threat to public education
that I've heard of since I've been in government..."
        Greg Sorbara, Kingston Whig-Standard, Saturday, September 8, 2007

    "For the Government to assist in the segregation of children . . . is a
backward step."
        The Loyal Orange Association Response to Bill 30: Roman Catholic
        Separate Schools and Public Taxes, July/Aug 1985

    "I think that's regressive. I think that takes us backwards."
        Dalton McGuinty, Canadian Press Newswire Wednesday, August 22, 2007

    "Full public funding of the Roman Catholic separate schools will compound
the problem by exacerbating student losses in the public secondary schools"
        Bill 30, Public Secondary Education in the Balance, OSSTF submission,
        July 1985

    "A proposal to fund public religious schools is "the greatest threat to
public education" in Ontario and would "hollow out" public schools across the
province, the head of the Liberal election campaign said yesterday."
        Greg Sorbara, Kingston Whig-Standard, September 8, 2007

    "I would ask you to consider the four reasons for relevance I have given.
Alternative schools exist. They have a right to exist. They service important
needs. They are a precious natural resource. And their right to public support
should be recognized. In a free and just society the rights of all are
diminished if the rights of any one are infringed."
        Dalton J. McGuinty Sr., Submission to Dr. B. J. Shapiro Commission
        for Independent Alternative Schools Funding, December 27, 1984
