Most of us are now familiar with the Erik Millett story. The school principal from NB who was said to have banned "Oh Canada" in his school... Well... there's MUCH more to this story than our wonderful national media has let on.
Here's the background: Millett had requests from some parents in his school to not have their children participate in listening to "Oh Canada" at school. To accommodate them Erik moved the anthem to the school assemblies.
Note: He didn't EVER BAN the anthem... he simply switched it from a cheap recording over probably cheaper school speakers, to a "live act" in the auditorium/gym.
One parent in particular (a Conservative one, we might add) was extremely peeved about the move. She quickly organized an outcry - almost a year after the initial changes. Her concerns got her daughter the role of "Oh Canada" singer. How's that for a benign act by the Principal???
FFWD a little bit and you'll notice a federal Minister speak out. "Why?" you ask? Well... turns out that this is the minister's riding.
But WAIT!!! This gets even MORE PARTISAN! Turns out that Mr. Millett RAN AGAINST OUR MINISTER (edit) in the last election.
Here we go again! An economy in tattered ruins, and a Conservative Minister is trying to score political points on a fake (lied about) issue of "patriotism". He leads a group of Canadians and MPs in a lie about poor Mr. Millett. They lie about a "ban" of the anthem - it was NEVER banned. They defame Mr. Millett's character indirectly by inciting others to attack and threaten him (even with physical violence). They try to destroy this man's career (sound familiar? think "isotope-gate"), and have left him an emotional wreck. All based on a lie.
THIS, my dear friends, is the modus operandi of our infantile Conservative government. Should group as sociopathic be allowed to lead a country?
Funny our national media did not care to investigate this "story"... Everyone but CBC, that is.
