Catholic jurists attack Proulx Report.
Proulx's proposals would lump all religions together, leading to confusion in the minds of students, and later on to religious scepticism. It is not the job of functionaries in the Ministry of Education, the jurists declared, to decide on the orientation of schools. By unilaterally amending Article 93 of the Canadian Constitution, the Quebec government destroyed the constitutional rights of Catholic, Protestant, and other educational Commissions to administer their own schools. The Association requests a five-year stay of the educational reforms while giving heed to the democratic rights of all groups involved (L'informateur Catholique, June 27, 1999).
