CLC rating: Pro-life, pro-family
Rating Comments: Lost bid for re-election as a trustee in 2018 Ontario municipal elections. In February 2018, Trustee Quinn voted in favour of an excellent motion to protect the Sanctity of Life through school board financial donations. His voting record as a Trustee has been exemplary. In 2014, during the run-up to the school board elections, candidate Quinn gave fairly solid answers to CLC election survey, with the exception of 2 questions that dealt with the risk of scandal to the faith of teachers and students. CLC's belief is that a serious risk of scandal to the faith is introduced when Catholic schools invite pro-abortion politicians to speak, and when they permitting in-school injections of a vaccine for a sexually-transmitted infection. At the time, candidate Quinn did not agree with CLC's position that this risk of scandal is significant enough for trustees to be concerned.

Votes, Surveys and Policy Decision Vote Score
Sex-Ed curriculum: Motions to protect parental rights in education against the Wynne government's sex-ed over-reach.
Trustees from various school boards made motions to curtail the Wynne government's imposition of its graphic sex-ed curriculum. The curriculum infringes on parental rights in education by forcing children at very young ages to be exposed to anti-Catholic LGBTQ ideology, unhealthy sexual practices, and disordered gender concepts. Motions include those to delay implementation of the sex-ed curriculum to allow time for meaningful parental consultation, as well as a more detailed evaluation of the inadequate and evasive government-run consultation process.

2nd vote on pro-life motion of Halton Catholic District School Board entitled "Upholding the Sanctity of Life Through Donations to Charities and Non-Profits"
This excellent motion, put forward by faithful Catholic Trustees of the Halton CDSB, would prevent financial donations from the school board from going to any charities or non-profits that publicly support the intrinsic evils of abortion, contraception, sterilization, euthanasia, or embryonic stem cell research.

Vaccinating girls against the sexually-transmitted HPV infection, a policy which gives license to premarital sex and undermines Church teaching on abstinence [2007]
This fool-hardy policy would signal to young girls that it's ok to engage in premarital sex, and in fact, that it's expected of them. Besides the moral problems posed, the vaccine itself may be life-threatening. At the time this issue came up in schools across Ontario, the HPV vaccine known as Gardasil had already been linked to 11 deaths of young women and hundreds of hospitalizations in the United States in the first year of its availability. Therefore, an HPV vaccination policy in a Catholic school, serves not only to give licence to sexual promiscuity, but also endangers the lives of female children. It gives them a potentially deadly chemical substance, and a false sense of security that "it's 'safe' to have sex, because I'm 'protected' ". The HPV vaccine is not even close to a guaranteed prevention and actually "protects" against just a small percentage of HPV strains. The only policy that can result in 100% protection against HPV, is abstinence before marriage and fidelity within marriage. That's what Catholic schools should be teaching, rather than promoting false security blankets that encourage risky behaviour. [Oct 2007]

Here are the answers for the questionnaire as provided by Anthony Quinn on Sep. 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? Not in all circumstances. Believe that pro-abortion politicians and anti-Catholic politicians should always be allowed to speak in Catholic schools, out of respect for their office.
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 (Note: Quinn does not oppose this because of the risk of scandal to students or teachers, but rather, because he feels it's a decision parents should make and schools shouldn't get involved. Anthony told CLC he believes the risk of scandal from HPV vaccination is non-existent or too small to be concerned about.)
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 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
