Ottawa Catholic School Board officials lie about taking kids to US to work for Obama
I’m not sure what kind of penance a priest would give for lying to an entire city, but Catholic school principal Norma McDonald may soon find out.
Through the release of internal e-mails, memos and other documents via the freedom of information act, it is clear McDonald either lied to the media and the public last fall or had no clue what she was agreeing to when she approved a controversial field trip.
McDonald is the principal of St. Peter’s High School in Orléans that garnered national attention over a planned field trip where Grade 11 civics students would “observe” the American election. A parent complained the trip was an endorsement of Democratic candidate Barack Obama. The parent said it was inappropriate for Catholic school students to campaign for Obama given his strong support for abortion.
