Sorry to read that the Board bowed. I suppose it felt it better to equip students to be politically correct than to become Bible-respecting men and women.

British Columbia Bows on CreationWritten by Rev. H.A. Bergsma
The Abbotsford School Board is throwing in the towel after a lengthy fight over teaching creationism. The Board has reluctantly bowed to pressure by Education Minister Art Charbonneau and passed a policy trustees say is legally defensible. They say it also complies with the new curriculum guidelines handed down by the minister. The guidelines do not allow for discussion of creationism in science classes.

(From The London Free Press, September 19, 1995).
