Should Ontario Abolish or Eliminate Funding for Religious Schools?

In Sweden recently, people were outrage at a Islamic private religious school in Stockholm where girls were directed at the back door of a school bus while the boys use the front door. That same Islamic private religious school was publicly funded by the Swedish government.

According to the Ontario Constitution IIRC, its says that the Ontario government can fund two separate systems, Catholic and Protestant (Penetanguishe Protestant Separate School Board). However, the word ‘Protestant’ is too vauge, because it comprises of about 30,000 denominations. So theoretically, any denomination that categorizes as ‘Protestant’ can be eligible for public funding for education.

Is it best for the province of Ontario to abolish religious schools or to eliminate funding for religious schools completely?
