Board chairperson Pat Daly said he proposed writing a letter “of concerned protest” against Trudeau’s stance.
“Obviously that’s something that is of great concern to our board,” he said. “The trustees were unanimous in their support.”
He noted the letter would be sent on behalf of the board, but also all students and staff within the system who work hard to promote a “culture of life.”
Its website says the board’s Culture of Life committee aims to “support and enhance the education of students about issues around the beginning and end of life – particularly abortion and euthanasia.”

Two questions for the Ottawa Catholic School Board :
1. Shouldn’t they also write a letter of protest to Trudeau? After all, Archbishop Prendergast and Bishop Riesbeck have made a big deal of it, to their credit. They’ve also provided all the political cover required.
2. Does the OCSB have a Culture of Life committee or equivalent? I didn’t find one on the list posted on their website, although I understand that list may not be exhaustive. Seems like we could do more.
