I can't say I saw this coming - given that the Canadian government pays for religious schooling (and in a lot of areas the only schools available are religious) - but I'm super happy that it did.

I'm happy to see that the logical decision was reached - that reciting a prayer before a government session is a tacit endorsement of that religion by the government and serves to alienate those people who aren't a member of that religion. Which is the exact opposite decision that the US Supreme Court reached when they said that prayers to a god aren't religious, they are ceremonial.

So, A+ Canada!
