TORONTO – More Ontarians support the end of public funding to Catholic schools than favour preserving it, a new poll shows.
Dr. Lorne Bozinoff, president of Forum Research Inc., said the three main political parties in the province are at odds with average citizens on this major and controversial issue.
“We have an area where public policy is out of step with public opinion,” Bozinoff said Friday. “The public – they’re marching to their own drummer; they’re just reacting to what they agree or disagree with and they’ve not been persuaded that this long-standing current policy is the right one. And they’re telling us that.”
