October 30, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) An Ottawa-area mom says she is incensed that a teacher at her daughters Catholic school has organized a trip to Ohio in the final days of the U.S. election to support the re-election of President Obama.
Fifty-two students from St. Peters and St. Matthews high schools in Ottawa are set to make the trek across the border this week to Boardman, Ohio, accompanied by civics teacher Scott Searle.
Ohio is considered a key swing state in the presidential election.
Calls by LifeSiteNews to St. Peters school were directed to the school board. A media spokesperson at the board denied that the students would be involved in supporting the Obama campaign. Instead the goal of the trip is simply to observe voter registration and the voting process, said Communications Officer Mardi de Kemp.

I did contact the Cardinal Newman Society, though they deal mainly with Catholic Colleges. I still think their President Patrick Reilly would have some comments about this situation.
Catholic schools in Canada are Catholic in name only..
Well said brother! Obama out! I’m going to paint the town on election night when the piece of filth Obama is voted out! COME ON AMERICANS DO THE RIGHT THING AND VOTE FOR MITT ROMNEY!
It might be possible that next week at this time this guy will be looking for a job...
Catholics need to be opposed to Obama based on his stand on "Baby Killing"And pedophilia and gay marriage, but hey that's just me saying it.
Catholics are no different than any other organized religion...They're/you're all loaded with hypocrites because all you have to do after knowingly sinning is ask for forgiveness.
Can these mush heads be considered foreign agents attempting to sabotage our election.
I just wrote the Canadian Catholic school board and threatened them with retaliation from Americans if they’re going to do that. I also pointed out that both the teacher and the board’s director of communications lied about what’s going on, using the teacher’s own quote. I am incensed about this.
What are the Ohio laws regarding this?
Iowa has warned them off too.
I don’t come to Canada and meddle in YOUR elections!
This happens to be against US law. Non-citizens are NOT allowed to participate in US elections, or electioneering, no matter what the Democrats say. I hope ICE meets them at the border and follows them throughout their stay.
Harper is very intelligent and sees through the lightweight that is Obama. Plus, Harper understands economics, and Obama, well....................
Ha, my daughter had this guy as a teacher. Said he be all nice and friendly, then if somebody misbehaves he’ll snap and start yelling at them.
In Canada, you don’t have to be a Catholic to teach at a Catholic school (but you do have to conform your teaching to Catholic values). It’s part of the deal where the Catholic School Boards get taxpayer money. I don’t know if he himself is Catholic or not, chances are he is. There are very few non-Catholic teachers.
I place these foreigners on notice that I consider them to be my enemy... plain and simple. If they were to show up at my door I would badger their illegal foreign asses out of my neighborhood, and notify the police of their law breaking activity.
Too many Catholics don’t understand Liberalism. Liberalism is an ideology that does not include God’s teachings. They are so absorbed with Liberalism that they let it take the place of God. Liberalism is their God. If they only realized that the First Commandment of God says that you should not worship false God’s, perhaps Catholic clergy would begin to understand what is happening to the Church.
So these precious little mushheads want to help re-elect Bonzo? Fine — send them to help Bonzo’s “peeps” in the deepest, darkest Cleveland ghetto. If they survive, they’ll come out with a real edu-ma-cation, and they sure as hell won’t want to repeat that field trip ever again.
