TORONTO – Somewhere out there, in an 18,000 square foot warehouse, table cloths and 5,000 chairs are rotting away. When you have an event, you need napkins, cutlery, places for people to stand, places for people to sit.

TORONTO – A survey on gender and sexual orientation will be conducted among grade 9 school children at all Catholic schools in Toronto. This is what was proposed during the last meeting of the board. The Archdiocese did not like the proposal and ruled against it.
