6 ways the Toronto District School Board took the fun out of Halloween

David MenziesMission Specialist

How do you make Halloween really scary?

That's easy. Get the co-parents that are running our schools involved. They'll spend hours (and a lot of taxpayer money) putting together documents dripping with spine tingling bureaucratese that are guranteed to bring nothing but pain.

Whether applying their talents to draining the fun out of costume decisions or to taking the "tasty" out of the treats, these bureaucrats know how to make us want to run away screaming from what used to be a fun day.

Well, try to have a Happy Black and Orange Day despite them.

Ontario’s sex-ed curriculum sexualizes young children, undermines parental authority and imposes the government's morality on every Ontario family.

Jimmy that fat slob from CBC explaining why they would not show the Hebdo covers so as not to offend while a cover insulting Catholics was on the screen was an example of bigotry. Except in the small mind of lefties of course.

I would love to see the school board rename RAMADAN .

Last night, an idiodic politically-correct parent made her well-dressed little girl go around carrying a sign and begging for food, for the poor, while her friends trick or treated.

“I’m not trick or treating”, the little girl said. “I’m collecting non-parashibles” and then she pointed to her sign which indicated same.

“What?” I immediately asked.

“It’s okay if you don’t have any” one of the girl’s friends said, while in costume.

Shocked, I looked up and saw the crappy parent lurking in the darkness, near the end of my neighbour’s driveway. I was incenced that the lousy parent was, essentially, robbing her little girl of an important childhood experience.

I hate PC parents who won’t let their kids be kids – not even for one night!

Clearly, this child was not going to solve world hunger or poverty. So, why lay that unwarrented guilt trip on her? Why not let her have some fun, with her friends. Not everything is evil/trivial and has to a pc learning experience.

Sometimes, charitible efforts go overboard and, clearly, this was one of those times – like getting the kids to beg for rich UNICEF.


So, pointing to the girl’s sign, I correctly remarked: “That’s bullshit!”

Then I gave the girl a bag of chips plus 2 candy bars.

Predictably, she did not complain and went away happy.

Sadly, a ‘few’ years, from now, that little will be all grown up and that parent will have missed what should have been the joy of her childhood.

Moreover, I’ll bet that when that girl has her own children, she tells them: “I don’t want to do to you what my parents did to me. I want you to have fun. So, go trick or treating with your friends. It’s okay.”

Some important things only come once, folks. So, don’t throw them away – expecially, on bullshit!

Liberals just naturally have to suck the joy out of everything. They have to reduce all the world’s colours to a uniform grey. They can’t stand the idea of anyone having anything but their ‘approved’ fun and anyone enjoying something that is not on the ‘approved list’ must be slapped down. Best of all, liberals insinuate themselves into positions of power in our public bureaucracies so that they can use them against us. Maybe that is why they seem to need pot so badly.

One day of Halloween fun for children is going to traumatize other (who, muslims?) students for the rest of their lives. BS. But it’s fine for the lgbt group and the liberals to infiltrate schools with their nauseating sex ed to brainwash children on how to become a homosexual week in and week out for the entire school year and for their entire school life from grade 1 – grade 8. These liberal politically correct school boards and the liberal government can go straight to hell where they belong. Have a happy Halloween kids.

Why don’t they just ask kids to dress as suicide bombers, or like they have been stoned in a black potato sack, to make those Muslim kids feel included? Who other than a Radicalized Muslim would be offended by Halloween?

Number 4:
“…the food products that are marketed heavily during the halloween period can come into conflict with students’ and their families’ dietary habits…”

The new world of rules building using “can” and “might”.

Here’s how you do it: “…the Toronto District School can fly to mars in their own minds and might act mentally retarded from time to time…”

Get it?

You’ve got to be kidding! Is this April Fools Day.
Holy cow. The Marxists leave no fun alone.
I was going to lay low tonight and not put up decorations but now I will put out every “offensive” tradtioal Canadian Halloween symbol I have. Hopefully I’ll insult and scare the hell out of every ass hole walking or peddling past.

This is another example of the creeping of Islamization into Canadian culture.

It is hog town – the land of people who came to Canada to make hog town exactly like what they left – hence no Christmas in many places – no Easter and more.

If the city was to drop onto the lake upside down and everyone there went missing I would not shed a tear.

A place that is a waste of resources and people.

A bunch of scared, politically correct, Muslim loving idiots now make up school boards and Teachers.
To hell with Canadian values and traditions, little Mohamed and his sister will be in town and attending school so we have to accommodate them and you Canadian kids will just have to suck it up.
Before I get jumped on about the Muslim connection that was not specifically mentioned by David – who else would be offended by Halloween?

Most school boards are mad up of X teachers and union bosses wives.
