TORONTO, December 21, 2001 (LSN.ca) – Ontario Premier Mike Harris has referred to the comments of a contender to replace him as “irrelevant.” The Hamilton Spectator reported yesterday that Harris dismissed Tory Leadership hopeful Ernie Eves’ suggestion that private schools may teach “hate.” Harris said, “As far as anything to do with hate or teaching hate, no school in Ontario, private or public, will be allowed to stay open that does that. We have very strong laws on that so that’s irrelevant and extraneous to the issue.”

Harris also criticized Eves’ insistence that private schools follow the Ontario curriculum. “As far as the Ontario curriculum goes, … there are about 58 schools that have alternative curriculum for disabled kids and those with learning disabilities that do an absolute marvellous job when the Ontario curriculum has been a disastrous failure,” he said Wednesday.
