You talk as though the constitution outlaws opinions...

How so ? 

"Tell them to piss off" is a pretty low bar of an opinion.  If there's one thing that I would discourage (not outlaw) it's dull-edged opinions being thrown around in a forum I like.  I have seen several (several) other forums become ghost towns because the quality of post fell...

Non starter. It's in the BNA act.

No it isnít, it is in the BNA act but there is no requirement for government to fund them and only five provinces do.

I can't help it.  Religion has that effect on me.

Think yourself lucky I was actually considering the quality.  It could have been much worse...

I don't see any gov't at least in Ontario having the gonads to put a stop to it.

The right to have a publicly funded separate denominational school system continues to be guaranteed to Roman Catholics in Ontario by Section 93 of the 1982 Constitution Act.[10]

Why on earth would they? Aside from a few cranks, nobody is going to thank them for it, much less change their votes in approval, but they'll be subjected to the fury of most of the province's nearly four million Roman Catholics and lose all their votes.

Not to mention the constitutional change would be long, complex and filled with lawsuits, and likely the government that initiates it would be voted out of power before it ever came to fruition.

Pity. I'm against public funding for any kind of religious education. Ontario also had some separate schools for blacks until 1965.
