Petits Chanteurs deal to continue

The deal struck years ago to privately educate the singers in the Petits Chanteurs de Mont-Royal has been renewed by Quebec, although this looks more like a snook cocked at the CSDM than any vote in favour of high culture. Also, as has been pointed out by commenters on this blog, despite the CAQ’s insistence on holding the line on gender equality by removing women’s headscarves, the Chanteurs arrangement benefits only boys.

Also, it’s a very British thing to allow boys to access a private education merely because they can sing. Very British.
