Candidate, Giuseppe Peritore
Halton Catholic District School Board, ON
Electoral District: Oakville
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.
