Controversial television programme

This evening Prom Queen: The Marc Hall Story airs on CTV. In our lopsided rights-oriented culture, ancient religious communities attempting to uphold standards of personal behaviour are almost always portrayed as oppressive, and anyone challenging them, whatever the motive, becomes heroic. That the ensuing legal case wound up with an Ontario court dangerously presuming to pronounce on what is and is not Catholic doctrine does not enter the picture. Good guy against bad system. Simple story. However, not everyone is enthusiastic about the show.
