VANCOUVER, BC July 11, 2011 – The Catholic Civil Rights League has responded to issues raised by the recent adoption of an equity policy at the Burnaby School Board with a Declaration on the Authority of Parents and Guardians in the Education of their Children. The policy includes some controversial elements regarding homosexuality.

“The declaration is not specific to the Catholic Church or Catholic teaching,” said Sean Murphy, a League director for British Columbia. “It cites numerous international conventions and declarations that have been signed by many nations, including Canada.”
