A woman who went to court last year seeking to strip Catholic schools of almost all government funding has been denied legal standing, stopping her court challenge before it got started.
Reva Landau was to argue the court should reduce Catholic school funding to the formula used in 1867, which she said would eliminate public funding for Catholic high schools and restrict elementary school funding to contributions from the property taxes of Catholic landowners.
She argued that the existence of Ontario’s publicly funded Catholic schools is protected by the Constitution, but that the legislation that funds them today violates the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.   Read the full story here.
