SK Premier Wall leads fight to save faith-based schools

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Earlier this year, the Court of Queen's Bench in Saskatchewan ruled that governments should not be allowed to give funding to Catholic schools for non-Catholic students.

If left to stand, the ruling will force 10,000 non-Catholic students out of Catholic schools and jeopardize provincial funding for 26 other faith-based schools in Saskatchewan.

If Catholic schools, especially in rural areas, are not able to take non-Catholic students, the student population can plunge to the point where they will have to close.

To stave off this attack on parental choice, the Saskatchewan government led by Premier Brad Wall, and supported by their surprising pragmatic NDP opposition, is introducing legislation to invoke the “notwithstanding clause” in Canada's Charter of Rights and Freedoms to override the Queen's bench decision.

Here in Alberta, religious education is under attack and it's not from the courts, but from NDP surrogates and our own NDP government, as we’ve reported before.

By fighting this Court ruling in Saskatchewan, Brad Wall is fighting for every single parent in Alberta who chooses religious education for their children, too.

I fervently have to believe that there are people “within Brad Wall’s earshot” that are seriously encouraging him to re-consider and “go for it”… One can only pray that is so, for the continued existence of this once democratic nation …

There is no surprise to attacks on Catholic schools, they out perform Public schools. Hence, in regressive socialist minds, the Separate system must be reduced to the lowest level, not that the Public system should rise to the level of the Separate system.

There is that, Mongrel but there is also the nature of Socialism: “A socialist is someone who has bugger-all and wants to share it with you”.

I know there are Canadian men of quality like Brad Wall, who could take the reins of the CPC leadership and turn this country around from the destructive course we have been forced onto by those rabid lefty Globalists.
I understand why Mr. Wall is done with politics and governance – and who can blame him in this atmosphere.
I can understand why other capable and good men and women won’t stand up to save Canada either…in this atmosphere.
It’s just that now is the time we really need you to stand up…because Justin and all his cronies all across Canada are pretty much done destroying Canada – with help from Scheer and the ‘loyal’ opposition…Remember, there’s a time lag between when prayers or legislation are made and when your prayers are answered or when the real intent of the legislation becomes manifest!

Catholic schools have always provided better education. But how can the government completely eliminate Christianity when there are still schools that exist?
This is one of the steps.

Sadly, the guy who started all this was a Protestant who wanted to send his daughter to a Catholic School for convenience of location. At that time, one parent needed to be Catholic. He even agreed to convert to Catholicism but couldn’t wait the one year period to become one. Great reason to convert!!! His fight has been ongoing for 10 years.

He probably would have been pro-choice as well, never went to Mass and called himself a Catholic, had he actually converted. Does the Catholic Church need Catholics like that?

This is an obvious attack on Christianity, and they want the tax dollars to fund muslim only schools.

We sent our daughter to private catholic jr./sr. high school. In grade 11 she opted to go public till after the third or forth week she came home and announced she hadn’t learned one thing in that time. We had to practically beg to get her back in the Catholic school but soooo glad we persisted . Sadly that school is now closed.

As governments are stating that Christians because of their views are not fit to raise children, it follows that the next step in the transformation of society by the ‘progressive’ cultural Marxists is “that any educational institution or homeschooling group that does not adhere to the ‘government position’ can no longer be entrusted with children”.

We were warned of Agenda 21.

Sickening indeed Jan G… And why the hell isn’t Brad Wall not leading the Conservatives in Ottawa now as opposed to happy mealy mouthed Scheer ??…
commented 2017-11-10 22:50:32 -0500
Sickening. So what happens when Brad Wall isn’t there to defend Christians?

While public schools are being turned into mosques, faith based schools are being destroyed. Socialists are Islamists. It’s official.

The move is on – the globalists are coming for your children. Stand up now and fight or watch as your kids are systemically degenerated by the anti-humanist globalist neo-feudalism.

How long do Albertans have to put up with this destroyer until she gets her ass kicked out of office and preferably out of Western Canada.

Does anyone on the left realize that you CHOOSE which schools to support with your property taxes? I thought they were Pro Choice????
commented 2017-11-10 19:21:06 -0500
Mongrel good point, the left always ignores the aspect of these schools performing better in their hate filled crusade. Meanwhile they will fully fund education of another certain religion under a phony guise.

Do away with the Separate system, then it is easy to do away with private homeschooling of any type, and to negate parental rights…the ultimate socialist goal.

Regressive socialism…reduce to the lowest level in a manner to control.

Saving our faith based schools is a step in the right direction for saving what’s left of our culture..!

It is obvious that Christianity is under attack in Canada … sure, not physically … but through lawfare. And it is equally obvious who is behind this attack.

This court decision also nicely complies with Sharia law: do not associate with the filthy infidels. In other words, if a school’s authorities decides to designate itself “Muslim” because of demographics or whatever, then all other kids in the neighbourhood will be barred from attending.
This is just another example of Trudeau pushing his “progressive” dogma of division and segregation.
