We declare, Christy Clark

The Catholic Civil Rights League among groups which presented 1,100-person petition to the premiere's office

In the United States it's health care. In B.C. it's education. Are the rights of Catholics being attacked everywhere?

A coalition of parents has had enough of the B.C. Government's fixation on raising their children. Members of the Catholic Civil Rights League, Burnaby Parents Voice, and the Kids First Parent Association of Canada presented Premier Christy Clark's office Feb. 23 with an 1,100-person declaration which reminded the premier of the legal fact that parents have control over their children's education.

"Why is parental authority so important to us?" asked Helen Ward, President of Kids First Parent Association of Canada. "We recall the riots in the United Kingdom and Vancouver last year. What was the outraged cry? Was it where are the teachers, the school trustees, the daycare staff, the social workers, or the politicians? Of course not! It was where are the parents!"
