From a reader…
The OCSB refused my Freedom of Info request to see how much they are spending on contraception per year. Unfortunately, my appeal to the Ontario Info Commissioner was denied on a technicality – apparently the legislation doesn’t cover “benefits”
2) Mark McGowan
There is an OCSB PD Day this Friday (“Christian Community Day”). All teachers will be at the Convention Center ($$$$) for a meeting. Sadly, the main speaker is Mark McGowan. He was involved with the “queering” of St Mike’s College in Toronto and slammed Peter Kreeft for presenting the Catholic Church’s position on homosexuality. Exhibit A and B.
He is also a big supporter of Bill 13 GSAs and criticizes the Bishops’ Respecting Differences document (page 7):
Wouldn’t you rather have Peter Kreeft presenting to the OCSB in Ottawa?
3) Grandmothers to Grandmothers
There are lots of organizations with tables at the Christian Community Day. Along with the usual Dev and Peace, there will be the pushers of the El Salvador trip to visit Cripdes/Cordes/Equipo Maiz. The Ottawa groups are Salvaide and Compadres “Collective”
In addition, the Stephen Lewis Foundation group “Grandmothers to Grandmothers” will be there. When you donate to G2G, you write a cheque to SLF.
G2G is a direct arm of the Stephen Lewis Foundation.
