The now-famous elementary school in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Chebucto Heights, seems to have had incidents of recent Muslim refugee/migrant children terrorizing Canadian students by choking them with chains. The Herald News site changed first the title of the article, from “school kids’ brutality” to “bullying” and then to a form of Orwellian ‘un-article’; in other words deleted.
The Rebel along with Blazing Cat Fur captured this story, along with a PDF capture of the now-deleted original article [see here]. Chebucto Heights Elementary School itself recently posted a notice [see here] on its website informing (or perhaps warning) parents that,
Nova Scotia is expected to welcome many newcomer families from Syria in the next few months. If you are a member, or know, of a church or community group that is sponsoring a family, could you please contact the school and provide details? We want to do our best to welcome our newcomers to our school community and prepare to meet their needs as soon as they arrive. [Chebucto Heights ES, January 26, 2016]
In its paltry explanation [see here] as to why this article outlining the terrorizing of Canadian children was removed, the Herald News now says,
This story has been removed. Bullying is a sensitive subject. So is the integration of newcomers, particularly those who have faced challenges, even trauma, on their way here. Our story was incomplete. More work needs to be done and will be done before the story is republished. We should have done better and we will. [Herald News, April 10, 2016]
Notice the dramatic shift in focus: from Canadian elementary students being ‘choked by chains‘ to Canadian elementary students having to respect the ‘integration of newcomers‘. Notice also how Herald News uses the same tag of “newcomers” that Chebucto Heights used in its January notice.
So thank you Herald News. You have now made this an international story of Canadian state control of, media complicity in, and the education system’s acquiescence to deliberate journalistic censorship. And the only price the people of Canada have to pay is the safety of ordinary Canadian children. That ‘Diverse Omelette Special‘ needs a few more broken eggs it seems…
