TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 04/09/14 -- The Canadian Secular Alliance (CSA) applauds the Ontario Superior Court decision which confirms Jonathan Erazo and other students are entitled to be exempt from religious services, field trips and Catholic instruction in Catholic publicly-funded high schools.
"While Catholic Boards are quick to defend their legal privilege, they seem to have trouble honouring the legal rights of others," said Greg Oliver, CSA President.
Catholic Boards have threatened those seeking exemptions with denial of extracurricular programs, honour roll status and graduation in order to preserve their power to coerce non-Catholics into religious participation.
"This also raises the larger question of continuing to fund multiple school systems," said Oliver. "Using the resources of the state to promote any religion is antithetical to the core principles of liberal democracy. As more parents learn of their legal right to an exemption, the religious identity of Catholic schools will face terminal dilution."

Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business. Unlike traditional approaches to building solutions, a cognitive computing approach allows the data to help determine the way applications are designed. This contrasts with conventional software development that begins with defining logic based on the current way a business operates. In her session at 18th Cloud Expo, Judith S. Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & ...
