John Tory says any religious schools must stick to the Ontario curriculum or lose their funding. Thus, creationism would not be allowed to be taught as science. That having been said, non-religious faith-based teaching (like “the invisible hand of the market can fix all economic problems” or “one day the working class will rise up and create a proletarian utopia”) is fine!
Luciano Pavarotti is dead at 71. The opera star finally succumbed to pancreatic cancer. However, even in death, his manager still referred to him as “the Maestro,” which you have to admit is sort of bombastically awesome.
City councillor says David Miller doesn’t have the legal right to make his proposed service cuts. Michael Walker says he has a legal opinion saying so. Everybody should pretend to be very impressed. Repeat after Torontoist: “Ooooooh, a legal opinion.”
Two Ontarians are suing the government over wait times for health care. The case, clearly an attempt to emulate the Chaoulli case in Quebec, is backed by the Canadian Constitution Federation, which is lucky that having an ugly-ass website is not grounds for dismissal.
Tony Rosato case ends. He’s going to a mental hospital, which is probably much better for him than a jail cell. Still no word on how Robin Duke is doing, though.
And finally, the Liberals are promising to extend kindergarten to a full day and give $300 to all university and college students for books and computers. Look, Dalton—Torontoist knows you’re electioneering and all, but come on, you’ve made us use the “Grits are buying votes” joke like four hundred times now, and it’s starting to make us look like hacks!
