June 12 is Election Day in Ontario and people need to examine their priorities before they decide where to put their X. If one of your priorities is one secular, publicly funded school system for each official language, then vote for the Green candidate in your riding.
Ontario Green Party Leader Mike Schreiner is making headlines this week because “Ontario Greens want Catholic, public school boards merged.” Schreiner’s election promise is economically appealing:
Schreiner says his party would save the province more than a $1 billion a year by merging the province’s public and Catholic school boards into one single system.
As Christina Blizzard points out, Schreiner is
willing to boldly go where no man’s gone before.
Or, perhaps more accurately, he’ll go where other politicians fear to tread.
Blizzard goes on to point out Schreiner and the Greens’ additional positive characteristics. In response to Toronto Mayor Ford’s endorsement, Schreiner said,
“Thanks, but no thanks, The Green party is fighting against sexism and homophobia.”
Blizzard is correct:
[Schreiner] may be Green, but he certainly isn’t dumb.
Consider voting for the Ontario Green Party on June 12.
