Faith-based schools that teach creationism in science class won’t receive the public funding Ontario’s Progressive Conservatives have proposed, a party spokeswoman said.

“If there are schools that teach creationism in science class, they would not be eligible to be funded as part of this proposal,” Ingrid Thompson said Wednesday afternoon, clarifying controversial remarks made by PC Leader John Tory earlier in the day.
Education Minister Kathleen Wynne, who is the Liberal candidate running against Tory in the Toronto riding of Don Valley West, told the Canadian Press that teaching creationism is allowed in Ontario schools, but only in religion classes.
