For immediate release – May 17, 2017

The following is a statement from Tom Fortosky, a past president and spokesperson for Saskatchewan Catholic School Boards Association.

The Saskatchewan Catholic School Boards Association is pleased that the Government of Saskatchewan  is also appealing the Theodore Court case judgment. We believe that this decision strengthens the case to have the ruling overturned.  We thank Ministers Morgan and Wyant, and their staff, for the work they have done reviewing the ruling.  We truly hope this, along with Premier Wall’s invoking the notwithstanding clause, sets parents’ minds at ease as they consider their options for next year, and years to come. We look forward to continuing to provide a high quality Catholic education to those who desire a Catholic faith based education in our province.
