Spec sceptical of Tory's Tories

John Tory's proposal to bring financial relief to parents with children in faith-based schools is running afoul of The Hamilton Spectator. This is not surprising, given that The Spec is owned by The Toronto Star, whose editors steadfastly refuse to recognize the prior rights of parents in the education of their own children. In the meantime, however, under its current discriminatory policy of funding only Catholic schools, Ontario is running afoul of the United Nations Human Rights Committee. If the province were to cut off funding to the Catholic system, the UN would presumably be satisfied. Tory's alternative is a much better way of rectifying — if only in part — an obvious injustice.
