 46 Vic Petition oe Roman Catholic Bishops. 897
PETITION.
To the Legislative Assembly of the Province of British Columbia:
The humble Petition of the Catholic Bishops of British Columbia, in the name of
the Faithful under their spiritual jurisdiction, sheweth :—
1. That they are not opposed to a system of Public Schools in this Province, por-
vided that it do not violate the rights of parents.
2. That parents, by the natural law, are in duty bound to procure a good education
for their children.
3. That, therefore, parents who have the means to pay for educating their own
children, ought to do so, and the people should not be taxed for that purpose.
4. That the State ought to assist those parents only who are not able to.provide
for their children a good education.
5. That parents should be altogether free in their choice of schools.
6. That the establishing of schools should be left to private enterprise, and that the
State ought to establish schools in those places only where private enterprise fails to do so.
7. That the assistance given by the State ought to bo granted to all children in
whatever school they may be, provided the education come up to the standard of secular
instruction required by the State.
Your petitioners, therefore, humbly pray that your Honourable House so amend
the present system of public schools as to secure the rights of parents.
And your petitioners will ever pray.
John B. A. Brondel,
Bishop of Vancouver Island,
C. J. D'herbomez, 0. M. I.,
Bishop, V. A. of B. C.
Paul Durien, O. M. I.,
Bishop, Coadjutor.
