I just had a chat with O’Neil Brooke, who is running against the incumbent Trustee Thérèse Maloney Cousineau.
Mr. Brooke emphasized the importance of listening to what the parents want for their kids. He doesn’t want to be making decisions that go against the will of the parents.
He also showed some vigilance to keeping the schools Catholic and not inviting speakers who oppose Church teaching.
Moreover, he aligns with the Ontario bishops’ vision, articulated in Respecting Differences, whereby we certainly want to avoid any unjust discrimination against homosexual kids, but not promote that lifestyle.
This is a refreshing difference from Thérèse Maloney Cousineau, who spoke in the Toronto Sun to endorse GSAs. She also would systematically stonewall me whenever I contacted her. Never got a message back.
Hence, I recommend that we vote for O’Neil Brooke in Zone 10.
