CLC rating: Pro-life, but not a reliable vote
Rating Comments: Lost bid for a trustee seat in 2018 Ontario municipal elections. Although Peritori gave perfect answers to CLC's election questionnaire and is a regular attendee at pro-life events such as the 40 Days For Life campaign, he said that he disagreed with the wonderful Sanctity of Life policy which banned schools fundraising for charities that directly or indirectly promote the abortion, euthanasia, destruction of embryonic humans, contraception and sterilization, which the Catholic Church teaches are intrinsically evil.

Peritori said he had "issues" with denying Catholic dollars to organizations that only "indirectly" promote the evils of abortion, euthanasia, etc.

At an all-candidates debate in Oakville, he also suggested that he would set aside his own "personal values" if he were to be elected.

“You do check in your (opinions) at the door when you become elected,” said Peritore.

This is not an acceptable stance for a trustee who would be sworn to defend and promote the moral and doctrinal teachings of the Catholic Church, which will always have opposition from the organized left.

Here are the answers for the questionnaire as provided by Giuseppe Peritore on August 29, 2014.

Question Response
Will you personally uphold and work toward the public promotion of total fidelity to the faith and moral teachings of the Catholic Church? (Current examples include the illicitness of abortion, contraception and homosexual practice) Yes
Will you work to ensure that Catholic schools do not invite guest speakers who have publicly expressed positions that contradict the morality and teaching of the Church, no matter how great their achievements in politics, business, sports, science or the arts? Yes
Will you work to ensure that educational materials that enter the premises of Catholic schools (e.g., library resources, curriculum texts, awareness campaigns, flyers) and all approved school activities are consistent with and do not undermine the morality and teachings of the Church? Yes
Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) is an infection that is transmitted through sex. Will you therefore oppose HPV vaccination in schools because it sends the message to students, teachers and parents that obedience to Church teaching on abstinence before marriage is neither expected nor necessary? Yes
Will you oppose teachings and attitudes in the school setting that undermine respect for and the dignity of human life from conception to natural death? refused to answer
Will you actively promote and defend the teaching of Catholic doctrine, the importance of prayer and a regular sacramental life? Yes
Will you work against any attempt to expand the sex-ed program in the Catholic Schools which is contrary to Church teaching, such as the one which included oral sex, masturbation and homosexuality, recently offered by the Ministry? Yes
Will you work to ensure that guest speakers, educational materials that enter the premises of Catholic schools (e.g., library resources, curriculum texts) and all approved school activities are consistent with and do not undermine the morality and teachings of the Church? refused to answer
Will you uphold, actively promote and defend the boards right to invite into its schools only those health personnel (e.g. nurses, counselors and other health professionals) who will respect Catholic Church teaching? refused to answer
Will you work to ensure that your Catholic school board enacts a policy requiring all agents and employees of the board to uphold the rights of custodial parents to direct and control the education of, and any medical treatment provided to, their dependent children attending its schools? Yes
Are there any circumstances under which you believe a woman should have access to abortion*? (*Note: a surgical or medical intervention designed to prevent the death of the mother but which results in the unintended and undesired death of the pre-born child, is not an abortion) No
