Reports indicate Conservative leader John Tory could change his plans on how he’ll bring in funding of faith-based schools. Campaign sources have told the Toronto Sun Tory is expected to announce that if he forms the next government he would put the issue to a free vote in the Legislature, rather than insist Conservative MPPs follow the party line.
Wynne was jeered when she suggested the funding plan would not lead to social cohesion. She says the Liberals “have been re-building a system that was undermined by the previous government. If we stop now, this province will not be strong.”
On the streets of Toronto, while some people told CFRB News that they may change their vote if Tory softens his stance on the issue, others said they wouldn’t, because the Conservative leader still believes in funding religious schools.
