All MPPs must be Catholic.

Since one-third of Ontario public school teaching positions are reserved for Catholics and non-Catholics can not apply, it makes sense that one-third of our elected officials also are reserved only for Catholics as well. MPPs, combined with federal and local elections, represent about one-third of our elected officials.


So, anyone running for MPP office in Ontario must be a baptized and practicing (whatever that means) Catholic. Perhaps then our non-Catholic MPPs will learn directly what it is like to be discriminated against because of their faith.
