"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

You Have To Be There To Understand

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Things Are Evolving As They Should":

"Former Mayor Tim Jones and I went to Cardinal Carter High School commencement in Woodbridge."

Why in the hell is C C having commencement in Woodbridge? That's almost as stupid of having a council meeting in King!

You wouldn't think so if you had been there. If you had been there you would have understood why.

Cardinal Crer is a district high school. I don't know how many Catholic HIgh schools there are in Richmond Hill and Vaughan. But a great many of the students graduating, judging y their names are of Italian descent.

The Italian community places great value on the accomplishments of their children.

I would even hazard a guess, that were it not for the Italian community, the provincial government might not have extended support to Catholic High schools.

But we are glad he did.

Cardinal Carter's High School commencement is a family affair. It is a celebration. Thousands were there.

When my grandchildren graduated from Sacred Heart High School in Newmarket, only two guests were allowed to attend. I missed that.
