Catholic Group in Canada Urges Use of Tax Money for Jewish Schools

January 5, 1966
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A proposal that tax monies be used for the support of denominational schools, including Jewish schools, has been made here by the Catholic Federation of Newman Clubs.

The proposal, filed with the Royal Commission on Biculturalism and Bilingualism, recommended that “the rights of minority denominational schools be recognized in practice-so that, in provinces where education tax inequities exist, all schools become fully self-supporting through tax formulas which will be distributed on a standardized cost-per-pupil basis.”

The brief cited as examples the denominational schools conducted by Ukrainians in Canada and “the Jewish schools which give partial instruction in Hebrew.”
