Debating the Secret Agents of Change

Decades ago I was on my high school debating team. Back then education was about learning to think for yourself. Not anymore. The NDP and ATA have decided that students should become "agents of change". Children will be taught what change is needed and given a push to...

Before you dig, call this number…
