OTTAWA, Feb 13 (LSN)—The Supreme Court of Canada refused to hear a case wherein Ontario parents were appealing to have alternative religious education in public schools. Parents wishing for such an option are now left with the unlikely prospect of garnering funding for the classes from the Ontario government. Ontario allows a comparative-religions class, but has prohibited instruction in any one faith since 1990. The case went to the Supreme Court after it was dismissed by the Ontario Court of Appeal last summer. Brought forward by Monhar Singh Bal, the case represented parents from the Sikh, Hindu, Muslim, Mennonite and Christian Reform faiths.
