Against all logic, public desire, and in defiance of modern human rights norms, Ontario still clings tightly to the legacy of 19th century Catholic-Protestant animosities. You can thank our Members of Provincial Parliament for that -- and the selfish vested interests who lobby them tirelessly to preserve their unwarranted, undeserved, and very costly privilege.
Someday soon the high ideals expressed on that monument will reflect what most Ontarians already believe and practice. I am confident of that. Sadly, some aren't there yet. One can still only dream of what could be and should be when strolling by that beautiful monument and reading the even more beautiful sentiment it expresses. Try to imagine Ontario as such a place -- then help us make it happen.
