John Tory 2007 Campaign - Statement of Clarification

    TORONTO, Sept. 5 /CNW/ - In an interview with reporters earlier today,
John Tory was asked whether 'creationism' could be taught in faith-based
schools, if they wished to receive funding under his proposed policy.


    1.  The Ontario curriculum does not allow for creationism (or any other
        religious theory) to be taught in science classes in Ontario's public

    2.  Mr. Tory clearly stated that any school to be included in the
        proposal must teach the Ontario curriculum.

    3.  Mr. Tory's proposal would allow other theories or philosophies to be
        discussed only as part of religious studies, as is now the practice
        in many Ontario publicly-funded Catholic schools.
