Toronto's Africentric School Dealt a Blow
in New Election Ad

Freedom Party's "Two Alis" ad takes a swing at McGuinty and Hudak

January 25, 2011 Toronto
- In September of 2009, a taxpayer-funded "Africentric" public school was opened in Toronto. A 2011 election plank issued today by Freedom Party of Ontario proposes that the school be closed, and that the law be changed to prevent Ontario school boards from opening such schools ever again.

The plank is being promoted with a new pre-election video advertisement that condemns Liberal Premier Dalton McGuinty and Progressive Conservative opposition leader Tim Hudak for doing nothing to prevent taxpayer funding of Toronto's race-based public school.

FPO video ad: Close Ontario's Race-based Schools

"Dalton McGuinty feigned concern about the opening of a race-based school, but refused to take any steps to prevent Toronto's Africentric school from being opened" says Freedom Party leader Paul McKeever. "Tim Hudak - who continued to champion taxpayer funding for faith-based education even after his party's 2007 election loss - did not oppose the opening of the race-based school.

"Children should not be taught that ones genetic make-up determines ones potential, values, or heroes. Ontario schools should be colour blind.

"A Freedom government will do what neither Dalton McGuinty's Liberals nor Tim Hudak's Progressive Conservatives will do. A Freedom government will permanently eliminate race-based public schools and change the law so that no school board will have the authority to open one ever again.

One race: the human race. That's Freedom Party's stand."
