On these counts the appropriateness of CMU receiving public funding and its promotion of a "covert" intolerance I do not see Canadian democratic values being well served. Neither do I see the creation of missionaries of any religious/ideological stripe who push a "Big T" truth in our public sphere as contributing to a constructive and respectful public debate.

They added: "While this may be tolerated in a privately funded parochial institution that sees itself as exercising a missionary outreach to society at large, we think it is singularly inappropriate in a publically (sic) funded (their italics) liberal institution."
