Charles McVety, a close ally and key endorser of Doug Ford's campaign for the PC leadership, thinks Ontario's schools should teach creationism.

Addressing the audience during a conference this week, the hardline social conservative and Canada Christian College president questioned whether the Earth is more than 6,000 years old and spoke in favour of creationist philosophy in the province's schools.

In one video posted on the Canada Christian College Facebook page, McVety tells the gathering:

"People talk about the world being billions and billions of years old, but I've never seen anything more than 6,000 years old. You have a perfect historical record for about 6,000 years and then…stopped…This nonsense that this world has been like this for billions of years is really troublesome to me in my mind because it makes no sense at all, but how many know that the devil makes no sense?."
