When Newfoundland joined Canada in 1949, all denominations were given the constitutional right to have their own schools. Then in 1978, the Pentecostals were given their rights.
Many people around the world, especially Americans, are dying so that others can have their rights. Many immigrants like my father, who came from the Middle East, were given their constitutional rights. A few years back, there was a vote called by the Liberal government for education reform.
Due to the Catholics and Pentecostals being the minority, their rights were taken from them. Most did not give them up.
So the Newfoundland people are getting what they voted for. So why all the fuss about reform now? They have to brew in their own stew.
Congratulations to St. Bonaventure’s School.
