Religious schools in Ontario
Let me ask you something. Why is it that Dalton McGuinty is allowed to make a certain issue about the kind of Ontario you want, but John Tory isn't? At least that's the spin coming from McGuinty apologist numero uno.
There's an interesting dynamic evolving on the issue of religious schools funding.
I do sense some resistance to it. I think McGuinty senses that, too, and has jumped on it.
However, I also think that people like Kinsella absolutely know what the counter-argument is, and are rightly concerned about it, too.
In essence, John Tory wants to restore religious equality in our school system. Dalton McGuinty wants to maintain a discriminatory system.
I think it's the right message for Tory if he gets out in front of it, and is allowed to make it.
